Worldwide Church in 24-hour Global Wave of Prayer
Christians around the world are signing up to take part in a 24-hour global wave of prayer next month. More than half of the 42 provinces in the Anglican Communion have already pledged to join the Anglican Communion Day of Prayer on 30 November and many others are expected to come on board as the day approaches.
The event is being coordinated by the mission agency, United Society Partners in the Gospel (USPG), and has the support of the Anglican Communion office and several Anglican agencies around the world.
USPG General Secretary, the Rev. Duncan Dormor, said, ‘We believe this is the first global day of prayer of its kind and are very excited about the response we are receiving from around the world. We sense this is very timely. We believe God is calling us to join together to pray for our world – a world that is reeling from the Covid-19 pandemic, the increasingly alarming impact of climate change, and from injustice, exploitation and war. This is a new venture, it’s very much a pilot which will be developed in future years. But to see so many people already on board is so encouraging. The Day of Prayer is open to all Christians, not just Anglicans. Absolutely everyone is invited. It is going to be a very powerful day.’
