Global Day of Prayer

I’m not alone in sensing that God is moving in tremendous power in these days and He is calling us to be part
of this journey. This journey is not really about what God is doing for His church, but about what He is doing for a world so desperate for His love and glory. He is calling us to humble ourselves, to pray, and to seek His face (2 Chronicles 7:14) so that He will fill our communities, and all the earth, with His glory (Habakkuk 2:14).

Always keep in mind that we are gathering locally but praying globally. This vision of a changed world is so difficult for us to fathom. The truth is, every word that God has promised will come to pass “on earth as it is in heaven.”

As we learn to work together, keeping our focus on Jesus, many new relationships will be forged and our city will be changed forever. New life will come from the new relationships. Pastors will pray together. Neighbors will meet each other. Churches will work together. And Christians will find ways to serve their communities in Christ’s love.

This is a wonderful season of prayer to help your co
mmunity or even your church focus on the broader vision of what God is doing around the world. This is not just another church service. It is a time for Christians to unite together for extraordinary prayer.

I want to encourage you to do just two things:

1. If you have not yet decided to plan a gathering on Pentecost, May 31, there is still time. A small, well-organized gathering can be the catalyst to propel your community forward in the coming months and years.

2. Please register your event here . Registration is a simple and free way to encourage others in your community to join with you. This will also help people around the world see how God is stirring up the nations toward prayer and repentance.

You will be part of the largest prayer gathering in history. The latest report from the international team is that 209 nations are participating in GDOP. The prayer guide has been translated into 40 different languages. All of them are available here.

We have prepared a DVD with short promo videos and dozens of documents that will guide you through every facet of your GDOP. The DVD includes items such as bulletin inserts, a press release, youth and children's prayer guides, and the Organizer Guide from which you can glean helpful instruction for every aspect of you event. Also included are models to help organize the ten days of prayer, May 21-30, as well as practical help with outreach ideas during the Ninety Days of Blessing. Visit here to purchase prayer guides, posters and DVDs and to download helpful resources.

For His glory,

Stephanie Tucker
