The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games begin today. You may be excited to watch your favorite athlete or event. It will be the first-ever of its kind: a no-spectator event. Jesus Film Project, Athletes in Action (AIA), and other ministries have banded together to provide athlete care and ministry amid expansive COVID-19 restrictions.
Naturally, the teams have shifted much of their focus to prayer. Jesus Film® and AIA have developed a 17-day Virtual Prayer Journey that will take you to a different country throughout the world each day. Insider info, like specific prayer needs and the country’s spiritual climate, will help you engage more deeply in prayer for the Olympics and for the Gospel to spread throughout each nation.
