“As is the business of tailors to make clothes and cobblers to make shoes, so it is the business of Christians to pray.” Martin Luther
40 Days of Prayer for the 2014 General Elections in South Africa. On 7 February 2014 a group of approximately 120 spiritual leaders and prayer mobilizers were witnesses to the launching of a country-wide prayer initiative called for by the church in South Africa: 40 Days of prayer and fasting of believers for the 2014 elections starting on 1 March and ending on 9 April. During the last 3 days (7-9 April) there is a call for all to fast in unity. This was initiated by the South African Prayer Movement for Change, Jericho Walls Prayer Network and the Institute for Christian Leadership Development.
Strategy: Encouraging churches, communities, prayer groups, prayer watches and individuals to take 40 days of focused prayer from 1 March till 9 April to pray for the elections. We also ask Christians to fast and pray 7-9 April.
Give Him no rest… (Isa.62:7) And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? (Luke 18:7). READ MORE.

World Youth Prayer Assembly. International Prayer Connect is a coalition of more than 3,000 Christian prayer networks and organisations who share a common vision to mobilise and equip worldwide prayer for the blessing, healing and transformation of the nations.
The International Prayer Council (IPC) propose a global prayer focus for a 24-hour period on April 14, 2014, connected to the 4-14 Window Movement that seeks to raise up children and youth (ages four to fourteen) as “agents of transformation” in their communities and nations worldwide. Making use of the Internet and media effectively, tens of millions of praying believers could be mobilized to take part in homes, churches and stadia. This would also be an excellent intermediary step to the World Youth Prayer Assembly (WYPA) two years later in 2016, building awareness and anticipation so that global event is all the more consequential.

Prayer Spaces in Schools. During 2008, people started to set up creative prayer rooms in primary and secondary schools, to make prayer simple and accessible to children and young people. By the end of that year, at least six Prayer Spaces in Schools had taken place.
In 2014 there are more than 250 prayer spaces in schools: “We have recently finished an eight day prayer space in Ulverston Victoria High School, Cumbria, UK, a community school with approximately 1200 students aged 11-18. It has been an exciting, fun and moving experience for all the volunteers, students and staff involved.” During eight days over 300 students came in and experienced the prayer space. As well as the Year 7 students experiencing five of the nine stations during their lessons, the prayer space were open during break and lunch times. On an average day there was around five students visit during break times and 30 at lunchtimes. READ MORE.
