Global Prayer Begins for USA
72 Hours of Prayer and Fasting for USA
UNANDERRA, Australia, April 30, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Australia’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting www.nationaldayofprayer.com.au will join with New Zealand (ANZAC) prayer leaders to call the nations of the world to 72 hours of prayer and fasting. This period of prayer will take place from 30 April – 2 May 2013. April 30 is America’s National Day of Repentance (NDOR) www.dayofrepentance.org while May 2 is the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer (NDP) www.nationaldayofprayer.org celebrated throughout the USA.
April 30 is the 224th anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration as a devout Christian president and the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s day of ‘humiliation, prayer and fasting’ held during the devastating times of the Civil War. The theme for the NDP 2013 is ‘Pray for America,’ emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.
Warren Lyons from New Zealand said, “We, together with Australia, come before the throne of all grace and mercy as we count this ANZAC call to pray as a privilege as we uphold America during its National Day of Repentance and National Day of Prayer; believing with you in support and prayer for the fullness of the blessings from God our Father to you, your families and your nation.”
Dr. Graham McLennan from Australia said, “We in Australia are so grateful for the protection that America has given us for many years, particularly during World War II. Now it is our turn to bless your nation through prayer and fasting according to 2 Chronicles 7:14 as we join together to pray for the healing of your land.”
Warwick Marsh from Australia said, “Today we are forming a spiritual prayer alliance with our brothers and sisters in Christ in the USA. As the YouTube link shows we are asking God to answer our prayers for revival and reformation in the USA and turn the tide of evil gripping our respective nations at this time.”
David Rowsome from Australia said, “America is a nation whose greatness is inextricable linked to its motto, ‘In God We Trust.’ America has been a beacon of hope, a bastion of freedom and a bulwark against evil to the nations of the world. We thank God for you and pray for the healing of your wounds, the mending of your divisions and the restoration of your foundations.”
The International House of Prayer in Kansas City is taking a leading role to facilitate prayer for America at 4am, 10am, 4pm and 8pm during their 24/7 Intercession Schedules over these 3 days. www.ihopkc.org
