Dear Friends 

This week we would like you to focus on Africa as we pray in unity across the globe: 

Africa is the world's second-largest and second most-populous continent.  Amidst a history of tribal war, slavery, colonialism, ancestral worship, witchcraft and a variety of different beliefs and religions, the Body of Christ in Africa is growing in this richly blessed continent.   

On 2 May 2004 – from the North to the South – from the East to the West – more than 22 million people in all 56 countries of Africa gathered together to seek God’s Face.  This was the realization of the fourth stage of the vision of GDOP.  Thus a canopy of prayer was raised across the continent when on the same day, at the same hour people raised their voice in the same prayer and from this continent came the invitation to the world to participate in the Global Day of Prayer every year on Pentecost Sunday. 

Emergency Prayer Alert: 

Let us pray for the city of Jos, Northern NigeriaMore than three hundred people have been killed in just three days in the Nigerian city of Jos. Though the cause of this particular conflict has not been determined, it has again pitted Christians against Muslims, resulting in yet another deadly spree of violence.  READ MORE
