Global Day of Prayer Broadcast

This year the Global Day of Prayer Broadcast by GOD TV is very special.  Not only will GOD TV once again broadcast a full 4 hours on 27 May but also as part of the World Prayer Assembly, from the Jakarta National Stadium, Indonesia on 17 May with Graham Power and Rory Alec in the studio. This is very significant as it is also the day that kicks off the 10 Days of Prayer preceding the Global Day of Prayer.  More information will follow shortly.

New developments in the Balkans

In October 2008 I had the privilege to be with prayer leaders from most of the nations in the Balkan region.  During this meeting the Balkan Prayer Network was formed.  It was one of the most amazing experiences when leaders from nations who have been fighting bloody tribal- and ethnic wars over the centuries, united in prayer and repentance.  Well, that group is reuniting again on May 1-3 in Skopje, Macedonia.  Every indication is that the prayer movement in the Balkan nations is growing and about to really take off.  

Please pray for this strategic gathering!  

Another exciting development is the release of the website   The idea is really what the name implies, for people and networks in the Balkan region to connect, share vision and stand together for the Kingdom of God to come. We hope that the website can serve as a gathering point for initiatives, stories and information about what God is saying and doing in the region.

A date for a Balkan Wide Prayer Day has also been set for the 2nd of September 2012.  The organizers are asking everyone to stand in unity and join one another in praying for the Balkan region. There won’t be a central gathering; everyone will be encouraged to pray where they are.  Visit the website for more information and to sign up for the day.

Pray for the Horn of Africa

God is calling 1 million people to pray for 100 million people who live in the Horn of Africa.  Why don’t you join today and pray for the Horn of Africa

To pray effectively for the nations of the Balkans, please click on the country: 

The peoples of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, NE Kenya and Somalia number over 100 million souls.

Somalia currently has little or no Christian witness among its people. In Eritrea, believers are cruelly persecuted in an effort to stamp out any vital expression of faith. Numerous people groups with no access to the gospel in their heart language live in Ethiopia & Northern Kenya. Islam remains the stronghold for the peoples of Djibouti.

MIA 2012 – South Africa – A Missions Mobilization Conference in need of our prayers

Moving Into Action (MIA2012) is a large scale volunteer and missions mobilization conference with outreaches, to be hosted Pretoria, South Africa from 25 – 27 June 2012.

At the end of the three day gathering, more than a 100 outreach teams will infiltrate almost every country South of the equator on the African continent.

Your prayers are needed for this massive plan to reach the unreached in Southern Africa.  Prayer teams are presently going into 19 countries in Southern Africa to prepare the way for the mission outreach reach teams that will go into these nations during June and July 2012.

These teams of intercessors are still going to the following nations in April, May and June:  We will be praying for the least reached people groups in those nations, for spiritual revival and to ask the Lord to break the chains that keep people in spiritual darkness.

Zambia: 15 April – 22 April 2012

Lesotho: 17 – 22 April (overland)

Swaziland: 18 – 20 May 2012 (overland)

West-to-East journey  (from Gabon to Kenya, on the equator): 2 – 19 June 2012

We need more people to join prayer journeys to Angola from 29 June to 6 July 2012 as well as Madagascar and Zimbabwe during the June/July school holidays.   Anyone interested in joining the prayer teams for MIA2012 can contact Crystal Strydom on [email protected] , tel. +27 12 365 3213

Registration for the outreach teams are also open on
