Movements all around the world have begun with prayer. One of the longest running 24 hour prayer movements began in 1727 and lasted for 100 years. If a movement were to begin in the United States, it will begin with prayer. We would like to invite you to join us to pray that every resident in your area will hear the word of the Lord in a similar way as happened in Ephesus.
This continued for two years, so that all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.Acts 19:10
An amazing movement began 2,000 years ago and it was no doubt inspired by prayer. In fact, Paul’s two prayers in his letter to churches in Asia Minor (Eph 1:15-23; 3:14-21) motivated the movement to continue on their mission of uniting all things in Christ (Eph 1:10). Of course, Paul was deeply passionate about reaching people with the gospel and calls us all to pray for those opportunities.
praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.Ephesians 6:18–20
How to Pray for a Movement in Your Area
Four easy to remember prayer requests will help remind you to pray that God would work in your neighbor, community, and region just as he did in the book of Acts.
- Pray that the Holy Spirit will empower you to be a witness to those in your neighborhood, community, and world (Acts 1:8)
- Pray for boldness to share the gospel (Acts 4:23-31)
- Pray that the Holy Spirit will provoke your spirit with the need to share the gospel in your area (Acts 17:16)
- Pray that every resident in your area will hear the word of the Lord (Acts 19:10)
We believe God wants to see a movement in your area. He is just waiting for people to step up and take the responsibility to join with him in uniting all things in Christ. If this is you, we would love for you to join us everyday at 19:10 (7:10pm) to unite in prayer for God to move in such a way that every resident in our areas would hear the word of the Lord. Let us know if you are joining with us.
