Thursday, 5 May – Saturday, 14 May 2016
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth”
AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO UNITE IN PRAYER WITH MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE
PRECEDING THE GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER
Starting on the 5th of May, millions of Christians will find ways to pray night and day throughout the ten days leading to the Global Day of Prayer, following the pattern of Christ's followers before the first Pentecost.
The day and night prayer help us to gradually build a lifestyle of prayer in our communities, as well as to focus our prayers much wider than our personal and national needs as we pray with millions during this time.
Gather in creative ways.
Many are forming prayer chains to build bonfires of 24-hours-a-day prayer. Others will meet for an hour or two of focused prayer. Some will be fasting. Look for how the Holy Spirit may give you fresh ways to pray with family and friends.
Children are praying.
Let’s involve children as equal partners in our praying.
Young adults will be praying around the clock.
In many countries young people will be praying non-stop throughout the ten days.
A Prayer Guide is available for your convenience.
Please feel free to adapt it to suit your own as well as the needs of your congregation, community or country.
