The Global Prayer watch is a combined effort of the Nelson Mandela Bay Transformation Christian Network, The Local Church and Jericho Walls International Prayer Network. By joining this prayer watch you will become part of a global prayer watch during 2015 that is praying non-stop for revival . This prayer watch forms part of the “7-days-on- the-wall” initiative urgently calling all Christians in South Africa (local churches, prayer watches, organizations and individuals) to take 7 days (168 hours) to pray literally night-and-day, earnestly seeking God for revival in South Africa, for the whole year of 2016!
But you don't have to wait for the prayer watch. You can pray at any time for revival using the guidelines and resources available on this page that was used during the 2014 prayer watch. These resources will be updated closer to the 2015 Global Prayer Watch in October. THE SPIRITUAL AWAKENING OF THE CHURCH - Isaiah 62:6-7
SALVATION OF THE UNSAVED - Acts 15:16
SOCIAL JUSTICE - Luke 18:7-8
(It only takes 24 individuals to pray for one hour per day to cover all the hours of the week!)
Why Now? Why 24/7?
People all over the nation are losing hope and trust as their personal circumstances become increasingly more challenging. The economy is not growing fast enough to create enough jobs. The moral decay of our younger generation is evident with teenage pregnancies, drug abuse and alcoholism increasing. Alarming statistics show that church attendance is dropping in basically all denominations. Less than 10 million of the 50 million people in the country testify that they have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Occultism, spiritism, scepticism, atheism and ancestral worship are increasing.
In Isaiah 62:6-7 God is calling watchmen to pray night-and-day for peace and restoration. Jesus says in Luke 18:7 that if we pray night and day the Father will make right what is wrong.
Consider the following:
Consider setting up a creative 24/7 prayer room at you church, or a neutral venue in your community.
Establish a 24/7 "prayer wall", encouraging believers to fill all the hours of the week.
Encourage different groups in your church to take some hours in corporate prayer during the 168 hours.
You can also pray by yourself at any place where you can spend time undisturbed in God’s Presence.
Organise corporate prayer/worship meetings in the mornings and evenings.
Do prayer walks in different parts of your community.
Preaching on prayer and revival a few Sundays prior to your 7Days.
Make space for the young people to have their own prayer meeting, a half-night, or even an all-night of prayer on Friday or Saturday.
Include different types of prayer, worship and testimonies as part of your corporate meetings.
