28 Nations Pray for USA

Historic Response to 72 Hours
of Prayer and Fasting for USA

A world-wide call to pray and fast for the USA went out from Australia and New Zealand on 25 April 2013 from the team at Australia’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting. The video Call to Prayer can be seen below.

The Australian team felt led by God to bridge the US National Day of Repentance on 30 April 2013 www.dayofrepentance.org  and the US National Day of Prayer www.nationaldayofprayer.org on 2 May 2013 with a worldwide call for 72 hours of prayer and fasting for the USA.  This was humbly and gratefully received by American prayer leaders during a teleconference on 24 April 2013.

David Rowsome, one of the Australian organizers, said, “As we look back we stand amazed at what the Lord has done. The response from around the world to this prayer call surprised us all.

Jonathan Edwards, the mighty American revivalist of the First Great Awakening and widely acknowledged as America’s greatest theologian, wrote in 1740, “When God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people”.

We believe this is what we have just witnessed in this world-wide call to prayer.  Many media outlets and prayer networks, including several global ones, very quickly took up this call.  Confirmed reports from 28 countries around the world have been received and we believe there could very well be many more.  We will not know the full response this side of eternity.  But God does!

David Rowsome continued, “A strategic prayer partner was the International House of Prayer Kansas City www.ihopkc.org  At short notice they responded with a special focus on America in the times of intercession for three days.  The live global web-streaming from the 24/7 Prayer Room captured the heart of the call to prayer.  In the atmosphere of continuous worship we saw the faces of many nations as they offered urgent, fervent and heartfelt prayers for the awakening and revival of America.

Many ministries around the world linked hands.  An intercessor from Ireland responded to the call with these words – “Yes, God’s global army awakes, moves by His Spirit and will glorify His precious Son!”  Clearly, God’s end-time army is taking its place, preparing for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as promised in Acts 2:17-21.  The US National Day of Prayer reached a new and exciting level reporting it as “the single, largest mobilized effort to prayer in the history of our nation with more than 42,000 events”.

We can only believe that God has indeed used “the extraordinary prayers of His people” around the world to bless America!
