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
So many prayer events are taking place that it is virtually impossible to keep track of all the meetings, prayer watches, initiatives, fasts and solemn assemblies in just one country or region.
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.
ESTA – Praying for the Muslim World [open]
Each Day of the week will focus on one region of the Muslim world.
Every week, starting with intercessors praying for Mauritania on Tuesday in the West and finishing with intercessors praying for Indonesia in the East, we want to see the Muslim world covered in Prayer.
Join our like-minded band of intercessors from all over the world by signing up with esta and committing to fast and pray on a select day of the week to seek Jesus’ face and turn the Muslim world around.
According to Joshua Project 92% of the population in Tunisia are Unreached. No Christian, church, or organization has ever "engaged” nine (9) of Tunisia's ethnic groups with the Gospel.
The good news is that, by faith, we are convinced that TOGETHER with you we can ask, seek, knock, and see the Lord change this reality by December 31, 2020.
We encourage you to sign up at https://Pray4Tunisia.com/2020 where we freely share professional quality videos about each people group as well as several ways EVERY disciple of Jesus can begin to play a part in seeing these groups become engaged by 2020.
Jesus, gave a simple strategy for prayer :
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)
After signing up, you will receive emails about:
- 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
- Knocking – practical steps YOU can begin to take to move towards engaging these groups with the Gospel
God desires to use His Church (YOU) in shaping eternity for this generation!
We pray you will take this journey with us and encourage everyone you know who loves our Lord and works to fulfill His Great Commission to sign up as well.
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
JosiahVenture – A 24/7 Prayer Room for East- and Central Europe [open]
Josiah Venture is a movement of God among the youth of Central and Eastern Europe that finds its home in the local church and transforms society.
Their strategy for training young leaders is based on the life and ministry of Jesus and His disciples.
King Josiah began seeking God at age 16. By the time he was 26, God had used Josiah to bring revival to the land, rebuild the house of God, and restore the Word of God to its central place (2 Chronicles 34).
Central and Eastern Europe desperately needs its own Josiahs, young men and women who lead the way spiritually, as this young king did. The world is changing, but the gospel remains the same. And every day God is at work in this region, as young men and women are being touched by the message of Jesus Christ.

M5 Prayer [open]
Pray for the Middle East
For the first time in history, since the inception of Islam, increasingly larger numbers of Muslims become Jesus followers, steadily increasing since the early 1990s. Since the Arab Spring in 2011, the numbers (in comparison to the last 1400 years) increased dramatically.
Missionaries and Christians in these nations contribute this increase mainly to a significant increase in prayer – from around the world but also from Christians in Muslim Majority nations.
M5 is an initiative asking Christians to spend at least 5 minutes in prayer twice a week to pray for Muslims to become Jesus followers, understand Jesus' love for them and that He paid the price for their sins so that they can have full assurance of God's forgiveness and that they can be sure that they will go to heaven.
