Mexico AG PRAYER FOCUS:Guanajuato and Guerrero

GUANAJUATO (home state of my husband's parents)(#2 green state)is a state in the central highlands of Mexico whose name means “Hill of Frogs”. The first battle in Mexico’s war for independence resulted in a march from Dolores to the capital city of Guanajuato, which has since been declared a World Heritage site. Guanajuato also is home to Mexico’s Mummy Museum and is the state from which hails Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president.


Guanajuato is one of the states that comprise the Heart of Darkness, aka the 10/40 window of Latin America, since its percentage of evangelicals is less than 2%.













Guerrero, located on the pacific coast and named after Mexican president Vicente Guerrero, is known for its three main areas of tourism of which Acapulco is most famous. There remain today more than 300,000 Nahuatl-speaking people, even though the Spanish conquest brought a sharp decline to the native population during that time.


Guerrero is not included in the Heart of Darkness, yet its percentage of evangelicals censused was less than 6%.


Let’s Pray:

  • For the believers in these two states- “Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.” Eph 6:18 ESV
  • For pastors and ministry workers – “My friends, by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the love that comes from the Holy Spirit, I beg you to pray sincerely with me and for me.” Rom 15:30 CEV
  • For conviction of sin by the Spirit – “But after I am gone, I will send the Spirit to you. The Spirit will come and show the people of this world the truth about sin and God’s justice and the judgment.” John 16:7,8 CEV
  • For the power and conviction as the Word is preached – “Because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction”. I Thess 1:5 NIV

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
