Millions to Pray for Their Nations, Israel on Pentecost Sunday
[05.06.08] Millions of Christians around the world are expected to participate in the Global Day of Prayer (GDOP), which is being hosted from Jerusalem on May 11. Launched in 2001, the event seeks to “saturate the nations of the world with prayer,” organizer Graham Power said. “We believe that as we humble ourselves, seek our Father’s face and turn from our wicked ways, God will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land,” he said. “More than ever before the nations of the world are needing God to heal their land. It is as we actively engage in acts of repentance and prayer … that we prepare the way for God to save the lost and transform our nations.”
 
The Pentecost Sunday prayer event will take place in concert with TheCall Jerusalem, which is to be held at the Jerusalem Convention Center. “The solemn assembly during this important time in history is for Jewish believers, Arab believers and international believers to gather in Jerusalem to pray for the fullness of the Holy Spirit to be poured out on Israel, the Middle East and globally,” said Lou Engle, founder of TheCall. Live video stream from the 3,500-seat auditorium will be provided by GOD TV, which now broadcasts around-the-clock each day from Jerusalem on 15 satellites. Affiliated GDOP events will take place in more than 150 nations.

The May 11 events are among several Christian activities being held in Jerusalem to mark the 60th anniversary of Israel's statehood this month. The GDOP (globaldayofprayer.com) will be preceded by the International House of Prayer's One Thing conference (jerusalempraise.com/onething) May 8-10. GOD TV, Aglow International and the Encounters Network, led by prophetic minister James Goll, are hosting tours to Israel timed to encourage participation in the GDOP. And from May 29 to June 10, a worship, prayer and arts event known as Fulfillment Fest Jerusalem (fulfillmentfest.com) will be held under a 5,000-person tent in a park on the Mount of Olives. —Renee DeLoriea
