Global Day of Prayer - May 31

187 Nations are lined up to participate in the Global Day of Prayer.

"To pray is to unite ourselves with Jesus and lift up the whole world through him to God in a cry for forgiveness, reconciliation, healing and mercy ... Prayer is leading every sorrow to the source of all healing ... But most of all, prayer is the way to become and remain a part of Jesus' mission to draw all people to the intimacy of God's love." - Henri Nouwen, The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life

The phenomenon of city-gatherings all over the globe, simultaneously crying out to God for revival, is unprecedented. God is moving in tremendous power in these days and He is calling us to be part of His journey. This journey is beyond the church, it is more than what God is doing for and in His church. It is about what He is doing and getting ready to do for a world so desperate for His love and glory.

He is calling us, his servants, to humble ourselves, to pray, and to seek His face (2 Chronicles 7:14) so that He will fill our communities, cities, nations and all the earth, with His glory (Habakkuk 2:14).

The date is May 31, 2009. Only 33 nations have not responded to the invitation to participate in GDOP. Pray that every nation will be represented in this global prayer meeting. The sole focus on that day is to saturate the earth with prayer.

Find out if there is a Global Day of Prayer event scheduled for your city. If there is - join it. If there isn't - sponsor one. Call the believers of the city together. Pray for a Global Spiritual Awakening, for a fresh Pentecost.

And pray for these nations in Africa - Niger and Reunion; in Asia - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Georgia, Iran, Nepal, Oman, Syria and Yemen; in Europe - Andorra, Belarus, Iceland, Lithuania, and San Marino; in Latin- and Central America (Caribbean) - Anguilla, Aruba, the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Falkland Islands, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos Islands, Virgin Islands of the USA; in the Pacific - Nauru; and in North America - Greenland, Saint Pierre and Miquelon. If you are in one of these nations, the Global Day of Prayer leadership team is looking for you - to assist in leading this effort.
