A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

Proverbs 8:34 “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.” (NIV)

Believing that God is calling His people to stand watch with Him in prayer during these critical times, America’s National Prayer Committee is calling upon the Lord’s people
to pray with them for 66 hours of intense intercession and worship,
August 26-29, 2010. From 6pm on Thursday, Aug. 26 until Noon on Sunday
Aug. 29, prayer leaders from around the world will gather in Kansas
City, MO at the facilities of the International House of Prayer to
worship and pray. Live streaming of this event will be seen around the
world, and portions will be seen on GOD TV.

Dave Butts, Chairman of the National Prayer Committee said, “God’s Word is filled with the command to ‘watch and pray’. This type of intense intercession is increasingly
needed in a world that seems to be unraveling before our eyes. As those
who belong to Jesus, we want to proclaim His Lordship over the nations
of the earth, and ask Him to intervene to bring about His purposes in
our day.”

There are a number of passages of scripture that call us to this sort of watchful praying:

  • Psalm 5:3 “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”
  • Luke 21:36 “Be always on the watch, and pray.”
  • Isaiah 62:6-7 “I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him
    no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the
  • Habakkuk 2:1 “I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.”
  • Micah 7:7 “But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.”
  • Colossians 4:2 “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”

The theme that continued to arise during the planning of this initiative was “preparation”. There is a strong sense that God is calling us to the walls of our communities and
nations to watch and pray as an act of preparation. It may be
preparation for something that God is going to do that will shake the
nations. It may be preparation within the Church, a calling to
holiness, purity and repentance. It may even be preparation for the
Lord’s Return. All we know is that God is calling us to Watch and Pray
in order to prepare us, and to prepare the way for something that is
coming. We call on the Church to stand with us in prayer. For more information go to: ;
