Dear friends,

For many months now, plans have been in process for a very special prayer initiative called 100 Days of Prayer (March 27 – July 4, 2020). We believe God orchestrated the timing for the 100 Days of Prayer far in advance. With the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping our world, and with many unsettling events now taking place, what better time to be pressing together as a Church in prayer as we seek strength in time of crisis, as well as Holy Spirit power for the mission before us.

I want to encourage you to personally participate in the 100 Days of Prayer as well as sharing this initiative with your friends, family, local churches, and pastors. Anyone can sign up for free by going to:

Please take a moment right now to share this important call to worldwide prayer through your social media (graphic images to use below). You can also share this video in which I am personally inviting all believers to join in the 100 Days of Prayer:

We are in the midst of a worldwide crisis. How can we respond? In the book Prophets and Kings, we see how Elijah responded to the crisis in His day:

It was because Elijah was a man of large faith that God could use him in this grave crisis in the history of Israel. As he prayed, his faith reached out and grasped the promises of Heaven, and he persevered in prayer until his petitions were answered. He did not wait for the full evidence that God had heard him, but was willing to venture all on the slightest token of divine favor. And yet what he was enabled to do under God, all may do in their sphere of activity in God’s service … Faith such as this is needed in the world today—faith that will lay hold on the promises of God’s word and refuse to let go until Heaven hears” (Prophets and Kings, p. 157).

God is looking for the Elijahs of today—men and women who will pray in faith and take Him at His Word! Let’s be that person who will not stop praying until heaven hears.

While we may not be able to pray in person with our church family, there are still many ways that we can join together electronically via phone, video conferencing, or other social media outlets for these 100 Days of Prayer. Even when we are not always together, we are still united in Spirit, and prayer can go places we cannot go. So, let’s press together on our knees as we seek God’s mercy in our time of urgent need.

In the Blessed Hope!

And the General Conference Prayer Ministry Leadership
