August 30: 41 days till 10.10.10, the Micah Challenge global day of prayer, promise and political impact

"the earlier governors—those preceding me—placed a heavy burden on the people and took forty shekels of silver from them in addition to food and wine. Their assistants also lorded it over the people. But out of reverence for God I did not act like that. Instead, I devoted myself to the work on this wall. All my men were assembled there for the work; we did not acquire any land." Nehemiah 5:14-16

This week:

  • Pray that the Church and Christian leaders in your nation will be devoted to their work and full of integrity so they can be an example to government 
  • Pray that we can serve churches and Christian groups with humility so that 10.10.10 glorifies God
  • Pray that the 1000 political meetings that are being planned, send a powerful message that we CAN halve global poverty by 2015.

If you can fast each Monday for the whole day or or part of it, or fast from certain foods, that would help us to hear God's voice and help to prepare us for 10.10.10.

If you have any words of encouragement or guidance from God, please pass them on to us all.

Our 10.10.10 prayer is based on the prayer in Nehemiah Ch1. Download

There is also a children's version of the prayer. Download

"Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?." Isaiah 58:6
