Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Dear servant friends,
We are in a kairos moment in world history. As nations are in uproar, economies in upheaval, social order declining, and times increasingly tumultuous, God is beckoning His Church to advance His kingdom.
Transform World Prayer Summit: Vision 2020, March 24-27, 2013
In response, Transform World and the International House of Prayer are co-sponsoring a prayer summit, "Transform World Prayer Summit: Vision 2020," March 24-27, 2013 at the International House of Prayer Missions Base in Kansas City, MO. We are writing to invite your participation and encourage your prayerful participation, as key leaders in the Body of Christ.
70 Hours of Prayer
Vision 2020 is a convergence call to the Body of Christ. For 70 hours, under the banner of ongoing 24/7 worship, prayer, and prophetic impartation, we will cast vision, seek the Lord's guidance and anointing, and engage with seven critical challenges that the Body of Christ is facing.
This prayer summit will launch a seven-year prayer focus on these challenges, linked to the seven spheres of society, seven regions of the world, as well as the 4/14 Window and the next generation.
Ideological challenge: Issues surrounding Islamic fundamentalism
Family Challenge: Focus on Christian marriage and the family, with a call to integrity, purity, and witness
Orphan Challenge: Focus on care for orphans, with a view to a world where every child belongs to a family
Poverty Challenge: Reviewing global poverty lines, with a focus on the availability of basic needs to the poorest communities in the world
Justice Challenge: Toward a godly society based on God's justice-considering injustice in casteism and North Korea, etc.
Christ's Missional Challenge: Reaching the last and the least with the truth of Jesus
Celebration Challenge: Identifying, connecting, and encouraging 24/7 houses of prayer and worship in every nation
7 Spheres of Society
Delivery of media
10 Regions of the World
Arab World/Middle East
Intercession and worship from this prayer summit will be streamed live throughout the 70 hours, beginning at 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 24, and continuing throughout the day and night until 2:00 pm on Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
Through the webstream, Vision 2020 will be an opportunity for college campuses and ministries in the US and around the world to pray and strategize about how best to meet the seven challenges and advance God's kingdom. Afterwards, the event will be archived. We also hope that GOD TV will assist with broadcasting parts of Vision 2020 live.
