Global Day Of Prayer Newsletter: Ten days of constant prayer: June 2-11, 2011

May 27, 2011

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place”

– Acts 2 : 1

The Global Day of Prayer Strategy follows the three parts of the beginning of the Church according to Acts 1 & 2:

10 – 1 – 90

Ten days of constant prayer: 2-11 June 2011.

Beginning on Ascension Day, 2 June, millions of Christians will find ways to pray night and day throughout the ten days leading to Pentecost

The Global Day of Prayer: 12 June 2011.

On Pentecost Sunday, Christians in many countries will assemble to pray. Some will assemble in large stadiums and other public venues. Many will gather in small groups or in homes.

Ninety days of blessing: 13 June - 10 September 2011.

As in the first Pentecost, transformed Christians transform their communities as they offer themselves to God as instruments through which their prayers can be answered.

With only 8 days to go till the start of the 10 Days, we would like to encourage you to not miss out on this opportunity to unite with millions around the world

The 10 Days of 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.

  • Praying the Lord’s Prayer.
    To help us pray with united hearts and minds during the ten days before Pentecost, we’ll follow the prayer that our Lord taught us to pray.
  • Praying great things. We’re gathering to pray for God to fulfil the great things that He has promised: His transforming blessing in every people, and the life-giving glory of Christ’s Lordship in every community.
  • Concerning deepest needs.
    As we stretch our hearts in hope for what God has purposed, He will help us pray with confident clarity for the urgent needs of our families, cities and nations.

You can find the 10 Day Prayer Guide in different formats HERE . You are welcome to adapt the contents to suit your community’s/city’s/nation’s needs. 

Youth and Children need to be encouraged to participate and therefore a Youth- and Children’s Guide is also made available.

You will find prayer points for the different nations on the website by selecting the nation of your choice in the dropdown box on the homepage.

Do not hesitate to be creative.  God’s spirit is a creative spirit.  By the way, He created you!!

From Wednesday, 1 June we will be sending a daily prayer as part of the 10 Days.  Please pass these prayers on to as many friends, family and colleagues as possible. 

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.  Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common.” – Acts 2 : 42 – 44
