About Pray for Seven


Our Vision
The vision behind this app is to cultivate a grassroots movement of every Christian in the world to come together and pray for every unbeliever in the world (by name) every week until they believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Can we really cover every person in the world?
There are over 1 billion Christians in the world. The total population of the world is around 7.7 billion (as of 2021). If every Christian prays for 7 unbelievers (one a day) then every unbeliever would be covered in prayer every week. We can accomplish this but it will take all of us working together and being persistent in prayer.

How long will it take to cover every person in the world?
If every Christian that is praying for 7 also inspires 7 other Christians to do the same (within their first year) then we can cover every person in prayer by 2030. See the progression chart below.

Year People Covered (Goal) People Covered (Actual)
2019 7 7
2020 56 1145
2021 399 2,432
2022 2,800 Current
2023 19,607
2024 137,256
2025 960,799
2026 6,725,600

What is our motive for praying?
Our motive for praying is that we personally have experienced the goodness and love of Jesus. As a reult, we love Jesus and love our neighbors. Since we love our neighbors, we want them to experience the same goodness and love that we have experienced. We believe that God is going to judge and punish those outside of Christ with eternal destruction away from His presence. We believe that God wants all people to repent and come to Christ and live. We believe that God wants us to intercede for them and He works through our prayers to bring people to salvation. We also believe that this vision will help unify the worldwide church of Christ.

How long will we pray for our seven?
We will attempt to pray for our seven until they leave this world or we go to be with the Lord.

How often should we pray for our seven?
We will attempt to pray for our seven every week. The app offers flexibility to adjust your prayer schedule and how many people you pray for and how often you pray for them. However, our recommendation is that you pray for one person per day and cover all seven by the end of the week.

Why do I need this app to pray?
Thankfully you don't! This app is simply a tool to assist you in your prayer life and connect you with other praying believers.

Who should I pick as my 7?
Take some time to connect with God and reflect on the unbelievers that God has put in your life starting with your immediate family. Move outward to your extended family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, communities, and beyond. Consider those you have regular contact with or plan to have regular contact with. This will give you the opportunity to practically show the love of Christ to them. Which of those people do you have such a burden on your heart regarding their eternal salvation that you are ready and willing to pray for them and love on them until they come to know Jesus? As you are reflecting, write down the names of the people that come to your mind and commit them to God. Over the next few weeks, ask God to reveal which of those 7 people that He would like you to pray for every week.

Why persistent prayer?
Jesus taught us the importance and power of faithful and persistent prayer.  He taught us to pray always and not grow weary or lose heart. (Luke 18:18)

How will the vision grow?
We need you to share the vision with people at your church, fellow Christians, and on social media.
