This network was born among a small group of intercessors in the Prayer Ministry of Phoenix First Assembly of God in Arizona, USA. The vision was simple: challenge people to join a prayer team that would take one day a week to fast and pray. There would be seven such teams, one for each day of the week. Each team member would focus their prayers on behalf of their own team and the teams of the preceding and following days.
Each team then, in fact, become Armor Bearers for the team members on either side of them! Imagine having thousands of people praying for YOU! From that small and simple start, the Global 365 Prayer Network now has thousands of members from every denominational background and from nations around the world.
As Christians, we are instructed to pray – to seek God’s face. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 “And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.” Leviticus 26:8 “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land…” Ezekiel 22:30 When God looks for a man and woman to stand in the gap for our nation, for the needs of others, will he find someone? Will He find us faithful? Will He find you?
As we look at the world around us – at much of what is called “Christianity” – and at the needs of God’s children, there is a HUGE need for people who know and understand the power of prayer to join together with each other and FOCUS their prayers for specific results. Each of us has areas of life in which we need spiritual breakthrough. By uniting our efforts in prayer, we CAN see change!
Each team members chooses a day of the week to fast and pray. Fasting: There are many types of fasting – ranging from a total fast with no food, to skipping a particular meal. There are also media, newspaper, and telephone fasts. The type chosen could even be different each week. The intent is to say, “I’ll give up something that costs – in order to gain something of even greater value!” Prayer: Some will be able to pray for an hour.others longer.some may only be able to whisper a prayer between tasks. It’s not the length of the prayer that matters – it’s the sincerity and faith that produces results! The Global Prayer and Fasting Network 365 has grown to such an extent that there are now many teams for each day!
We all know that prayer needs to be a vital part of our walk with God. Through this Network you will be encouraged to pray, to focus your prayers, and to rejoice with us as we hear about the results of our intercession! Would you like to have hundreds – even thousands of others prepared to pray for YOUR needs?
