500 Days of Prayer to Proceed the Global Day of Prayer in London

I saw this on Christian Today and I have to say I think it is an awesome idea. Instead of just having one national day of prayer in September of 2011, the Global Day of Prayer in London has set up 500 days of prayer before the date in 2011. You can never have too many days in a row of prayer so I think this is wonderful. Getting churches and Christians from all over the globe to participate in this only makes it that much more special too!

“Global Day of Prayer London is partnering with Celebration for the Nations, a gathering of worshippers in Wales from the nations touched by the 1904 Welsh Revival, to launch 500 days of prayer for the nation.

At the Celebration for the Nations event in London this Sunday, GDOP London will call on Christians from across the nation to join the prayer chain in the lead up to a national day of prayer at Wembley Stadium September 2011.

“We are excited that the praying community of the South Koreans have created a platform for us to launch this 500 days of prayer,” said GDOP London Convener Jonathan Oloyede.

He added: “That connection of Africans and British and Caribbean and South Korean intercessors coming together is prophetically exciting and culturally very powerful. We can’t overemphasise the sense of unity with cultures from all around the world and the Commonwealth coming together for such a time as this.

“August 1 will see the beginning of a chain of non-stop 24 hour prayers of believers from every walk of life coming together in unity for the manifestation of the Kingdom of God in these Isles.”” – “GDOP London to Launch 500 Days of Prayer for Nation”, Christian Today
