People from over 198 countries spanning the globe have signed up to pray for a world wide release of the Holy Spirit upon every nation, people and tongue–a greater Pentecost. It is hoped that at least 500 million Christians will participate this year. Please join in this far reaching event–See web site: www.globaldayofprayer.com for info.
This prayer initiative began in 2001, when a South African Businessman organized a prayer vigil in Cape Town. From there, it expanded across all of Africa and then to every continent. The Global Day of Prayer was introduced to North America, last year in 2005.
