Invitation to Just Prayer 2021 from Baptist Mission Australia on Vimeo.
We believe that all people should have the opportunity to hear the message of Jesus in a way that makes sense to them. In their culture and language.
However, there are still millions around the world who have never had that opportunity. When 99% of the world’s Christian resources and workers remain within communities who already have access to the Gospel, we have to ask the question...
Is this just?
Just Prayer is a weekend of dedicated prayer for people around the world to meet a Jesus who speaks their language.
