Global Day of Prayer: May 15, 2005

See for more information on this.  Also The Global Day of Prayer official website.  Below is information taken from the latter site:

This is the fifth Stage to the Africa Transformation vision (see the Africa Day of Prayer write up) and will take place on 15 May 2005. People will begin praying as the sun comes up in the East (New Zealand) in different time slots until the Sun sets in the West (USA). This planning will involve leaders from all 6 continents and will include more than 240 countries around the Globe under the auspices of International Prayer Council (IPC)
 

After Jesus was raised from the dead, He met with His followers many times during a period of forty days. He did far more than prove that He was alive. He spoke again and again about the Kingdom of God: the advance of God's kingly love among all the peoples of earth. On the last day He was with them, He told them to stay in Jerusalem and to wait for “the promise of the Father.” Just after Jesus was received into heaven, His followers gathered together in Jerusalem to do exactly what Jesus had told them: to wait for the promise of the Father. But it was not a passive waiting. They waited by praying earnestly for ten days. They sought God zealously with their hearts aligned with “one mind” concerning the promise about the Spirit of God. They prayed persistently through the many other promises about the Kingdom of God that Jesus had spent so much time teaching them.

As we read their prayers, and as we listen to what poured out from their hearts in the days that followed Pentecost, we get a good idea about how they prayed. Their prayers and statements sprang from the written Word of God. They prayed in fervent, hope-filled passion for God to fulfill His promises regarding His kingdom on earth. Christ is again calling His church to unite in prayer. We are compelled to pray because the great troubles that shake our world have no human solution. Even more, we are called to pray because of the wonderful promises that God has purposed to accomplish by Christ's life and power among the peoples of earth. It is time now for God's people to gather again in persistent, united prayer. What better way to unite in prayer than to consecrate ourselves to seek God for ten days, as Jesus' first followers did, culminating on the day of Pentecost?

Following the example of the first followers who “joined together constantly” in prayer (Acts 1.14) during the ten days between the ascent of Jesus and the descent of His Spirit on Pentecost, believers will be organizing ways to pray together night and day beginning Friday, 6 May, (Ten Days of Prayer toward a Greater Pentecost) through the end of Pentecost Sunday, 15 May, 2005. The following prayer guide provides a simple way for you and your church to pray in united hope and faith with Christians all over the world:

  • Ten Days of Prayer toward a Greater Pentecost

The Glory of Christ and the Transformation of the Nations 6-15 May 2005.  Now is an ideal opportunity for God's people to gather again in persistent, united prayer. What better way to unite in prayer than to consecrate ourselves to seek God for ten days, as Jesus' first followers did, culminating on the day of Pentecost?   Participate with others from all over the world seeking the healing of their nations and the coming of the glory of the Lord.

  • A 90-Day Plan of Action
