“Great and amazing things happen when the Church prays.” Anonymous

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” ( 2 Chro.7:14).

This is an urgent call to the entire Church to pray. This call for prayer has become necessary in light of the numerous challenges the Church and our Nation is going through. We all recall that in the past, when the Church faced similar challenges and threats, we had resorted to prayers and God answered. So, as we now face what can no doubt be described as ‘PERILIOUS TIMES’ in our nation, let us arise and pray, knowing that God has always been faithful in responding to our passionate petitions.

Prayer is at the core of the ministry of the Church. The Church was born in prayer and has been sustained all through her history by prayer. ?Jesus, the head of the Church, exemplified the importance of prayer by the attention He gave to it. He prayed regularly, and taught his disciples how to pray. Once, when He went into the temple, He drove away the money changers who had turned the temple into a business centre and thereafter declared, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a house of thieves.'” Thus, the Church should be a house of prayer, a place where prayer never ceases.

I urge all Christians – Catholics, Protestants, Pentecostals, Charismatics, and all other denominations, including men, women and children – whether in the market places, the offices, in business premises, at homes, in Churches, at street corners, in the eateries, in communities and at football fields to arise and join in this One Year 24/7 prayer initiative. Let us all raise the altar of prayer in twos, in threes, in groups, and families so that the tide of evil facing the nation and the Church may be overturned. Let us persist in prayer until a great awakening is seen in the land.

God bless you all as you respond to this clarion call to prayer.
