    Global Week of Prayer 2021

    4 September 2021 - 11 September 2021

    A week of reflection on what’s happening around us and prayer.

    “Unprecedented” is the word often used to describe recent world developments. Never before have such earthshaking events converged in such a relatively short period of time, affecting nearly every aspect of life so quickly and dramatically. Perceptions are running high that something stupendous is about to happen, but predictions about the future are vague and uncertain.

    During this 2021 Week of Prayer we will dive deeply into these all-important messages that have Jesus Christ and His righteousness at their core as He seeks to bring home the necessity of uniting our lives fully and totally with Him.

     

    Adventist World-Week Of Prayer 2021 Book Cover

    Prayer is spiritual communication between us God. It is our direct line with heaven. We pray to talk to God, understand him, connect with him, understand ourselves, and understand what’s happening around us.

    Who this event is for

    Anyone who wants to participate.

    Whether you’re new to faith or a life-long learner, you’ll be able to follow along and gain something to strengthen your walk. Participate alone, with family, or with friends. It’s completely up to you!

    How does it work?

    Read the daily devotions, consider the questions, and pray. That’s it.

    We encourage keeping a journal or note pad to keep track of your thoughts and prayers as you journey through the exercise.

    Sabbath September 11 will be a day of prayer for the health of our countries. 

    We are to pray for those who have been impacted because of Covid-19:

    • with loss of life,
    • restrictions of work and travel,
    • inability to connect with family and friends and
    • to be with people of like faith face to face.

    We also request prayers for:

    • the governments who are making decisions regarding the health and wellbeing of the whole community,
    • the health workers and systems, and
    • the support departments.

    We also want people to pray for us as a church that in this troubling time we will truly love each other and be known as a people who care for everyone affected (not just ourselves) and live and present love and hope as we have it in Jesus.

    “Love does no harm to it neighbour …”  Romans 13:10 NIV.
