Ten days of “day and night prayer” begin today, Ascension Day. During these ten days between Ascension and Pentecost, Christians are encouraged to
find ways to pray night and day throughout the ten days leading to the Global Day of Prayer, following the pattern of Christ’s followers before the first Pentecost.
The day and night prayer help us to gradually build a lifestyle of prayer in our communities, as well as to focus our prayers much wider than our personal and national needs as we pray with millions during this time.
You can download a prayer guide with special grayer points and Scriptures for each of the ten days. Pentecost will be the Global Day of Prayer, when millions of Christians around the world will unite in prayer for the nations.
ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, guide, we beseech thee, the Nations of the world into the way of justice and truth, and establish among them that peace which is the fruit of righteousness, that they may become the Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves;
And give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. ~ Isaiah 62:6-7 (NASB)
