Prayer Events and Initiatives
“We may be living in the days of the greatest prayer movement of History!
Despite some familiar patterns of prayerlessness in the church,
more Christians are praying now, certainly, than at any time in history.
More than 200 million believers pray every day for the advancement of world missions.
At least 15 million groups around the world pray weekly for missions in the communities, probably even more.
Prayer events and gatherings abound all over the world in many countries”
~ Steve Hawthorne, WayMakers.org

In this section, you will find a list of upcoming EVENTS AND INITIATIVES.
Some are limited to a timeframe while others are ongoing.
Use it to pick those you would like to participate in and add them to your Prayer Calendar.
Hindu World Prayer Focus [open]
28 October - 11 November 2018
2018 Guide available soon
The annual Hindu World Prayer Focus calls Christians and churches worldwide to take 15 days to learn about and pray for our world’s over one billion Hindu neighbours. That period also encompasses the significant Hindu Festival of Light (Diwali). The informative prayer guide booklets will help Christians to know how to pray for the people(s) growing up within this major and very diverse world religion.
Diwali (or Deepawali) is known as the Hindu Festival of Lights, and is one of India’s most important annual celebrations, lasting about 4-5 days. While (similar to Christmas celebrations in the Christian world) it has historical and religious roots, Indians celebrate it by lighting and displaying rows of small oil lamps, participating in family gatherings, consuming special sweets and watching fireworks.
It is not our intention with this prayer focus to disparage India or the Hindu religion. in any way. We recognize that both are far too complex and too full of great traditions to simply or easily condense, explain or take lightly within a mere booklet.
At the same time, as Christians, we long that all the world’s people(s) will have an opportunity to freely see, hear and understand the grace of God incarnated in Jesus Christ.
To this end, we inform ourselves, pray for and want to support opportunities to make that grace known also within the world’s Indian and Hindu communities.
We invite all Christians and churches to participate and to learn about and pray for Hindus.

ION Prayer [open]
Open Invitation to prayer leaders & networks with a heart for the completion of the Great Commission. We invite you to step in and LINK together for the sake of the unreached…
It is estimated that of the 7.3 billion people alive in the world today, 1.2 to 1.4 billion have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Joshua Project.net, there are approximately 16,000 unique people groups in the world with about 6,600 of them considered unreached. The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and are oral people groups.
In praying for the Oral & Oral Bible-less, we want to pray not only to make just a convert but a disciple of Jesus. That requires the Scriptures to be available in the mother tongue. Wycliffe Bible Translators reports that of the approximately 6,800+ living languages across the world today, about 1,800 have definite translation need. That means for mother-tongue speakers of those 1,800 languages no Scripture exists at all. They may have limited access to trade or major languages, but no access in their heart language. Of course, the languages with the larger number of speakers have been translated, but even many millions do not have the Scriptures in their mother-tongue.

7 Days on the Wall [open]
Seven years of 24/7 Prayer for Revival in South Africa 2013 – 2019
As the nation faces extreme challenges with regards to the on-going drought, slowing down economy and other severe social problems, there are strong signs of ever increasing prayer activity across the nation of South Africa.
Various prayer networks, initiatives & actions through different ministries have been actively mobilizing the nation to pray during 2015. The “7 Days on the Wall” prayer initiative for revival was one of these initiatives that mobilized thousands of Christians all over the nation to pray 24/7 for a spiritual awakening, salvation of the unsaved and social justice.
At the end of 2015 the momentum did not show signs of decreasing as more than 500 local churches/schools/prisons prayed during September/October. These groups were part of more than 2000 x 7-Day Watches that have been registered since January 2013.
Some of the fruit seen since 2013:
- More people joined in prayer for the nation.
- Increasing desire for revival or spiritual awakening.
- Church leaders taking an active role in mobilizing the church to pray.
- New regional prayer networks formed.
There seems to be an intensifying call to prayer, as we enter the third year of this seven year strategy of calling the whole country to continuous prayer for revival, salvation & social justice.

May God visit our nation in the power of His Holy Spirit!

- Asking – for all of the currently UUPG's in Tunisia to be engaged with the Gospel by December 31, 2020.
- Seeking – connecting you with resources that you can share with others on behalf of these unengaged groups

There are 5 billion people in the world who don’t know a true follower of Christ. We are trusting God to raise up 10 million Christ-centered multiplying disciples. Ten million disciples would mean that everyone would know at least one person who follows Jesus.
Please join us in prayer.
30-Day Prayer Guide for (Islamic State)IS [open]
Why Pray for IS?
"Jesus says to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us (Mat. 5:44). The Spirit of Jesus in the prophets and in the apostles also tells us that those who turn a blind eye to the killing of others are wrong. The fact that we feel contradictory praying both for justice against the Islamic State and for salvation for Islamic State terrorists is partly because we fail to distinguish between the mission of the state in the use of the temporal sword against evildoers (Rom. 13:4) and the mission of the church in the use of the sword of the Spirit against sin and death and the devil (Eph. 6). But that’s not, I think, the main problem.
The main problem is that we sometimes forget that we are called to be a people of both justice and justification, and that these two are not contradictory." ~ Russel Moore
