A prayer for Pentecost

The National Day of Prayer and Worship is encouraging Christians to pray for the world this Pentecost.

NDOPW has written a special prayer that Christians can use:

Almighty God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
 We gather with believers all around the world,
 to glorify You as Creator of heaven and heart.
 You alone are holy and righteous.
 We submit to Your authority.
 We praise and adore You alone

Jonathan Oloyede, NDOPW convener, is currently touring the country to encourage Christians to keep praying together for the nation following last year's successful NDOPW at Wembley Stadium, attended by around 30,000 Christians.

He said: "I believe strongly that this Pentecost Sunday must demonstrate even more than ever before the current move of God in our land.

"Let us celebrate the growing unity and increasing levels of prayer and collaboration amongst many groups and organisations.

"I am delighted that the National Day of Prayer and Worship is able to partner and work with many regional and national networks."

The NDOPW is encouraging Christians to pause at 12 noon each day to say the Lord's Prayer over the land. Christians are also being invited to share what God is saying to them via Twitter using the hashtag #pentecost13

"We are not just asking you to engage in these prayers because it sounds cute, but we believe along with many others that God wants to break out by His Spirit in our nation," he said.

"It is our vision to see the British Isles and Ireland saturated with prayer so that God's Glory may fill the land. Join us in this quest to see the hand of God show up in these Isles as we unite in prayer."
