10 DAYS PRAYER BEFORE PENTECOST
A Sound from Heaven
21 – 31 May 2020
Come, Holy Spirit… Acts 4:31
Origin of 10 Days of Prayer
Jesus’ last words moments before His ascension are captured in Acts 1:8: “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” The Bible says that in an upper room in Jerusalem, 120 people waited and prayed for the fulfilment of this promise, which came ten days later on the day of Pentecost. Over the centuries the church has, in commemoration, kept the ten days before Pentecost in like manner, praying for a fresh outpouring of the Spirit of God.
Night and Day Prayer for Revival of the Church
The fullness of the Holy Spirit is needed to overcome temptation, to stand in persecution and to gather in the harvest…!” (Luke 4:1 / Acts 7:55/ Acts 11:24). The 10 Days of Night and Day Prayer focus on prayer for revival in the Church of Jesus Christ, motivated by a longing of Christians that God will again pour out His Holy Spirit upon the church, so that the works of the first church may also be done in our generation.
The 10 Days of Night and Day Prayer are from 21 – 30 May 2020, and a special Global Day of Corporate Prayer for Revival on Pentecost Sunday, 31 May 2020. We will call to remembrance the revivals in history, and ask God for a renewed outpouring of His Spirit across the world. We suggest spontaneous prayer, facilitated with testimonies and/or video clips on revival, as well as using the proposed guidelines in this prayer calendar.
Daily Prayer Guide
You can use the following daily prayer guides during the 10 Days of prayer before Pentecost. Please share these prayer guides with others, to encourage them to pray and wait on the Holy Spirit for revival. The prayer points are also available in our Jericho Walls Prayer App so that you can receive them daily on your mobile phone.
We have various initiatives in our ministry and resources available on our website to encourage you to persevere in prayer for revival. Our hearts yearn for God to pour out His Spirit, so that we will see personal revival, community revival and countries changed for His glory! He has done it many times in history and He will do it again. There is already a stirring in the hearts of believers across the world. And together we cry out: “Come, Holy Spirit!”
