Planning for World Youth Prayer Assembly
Leaders from 16 countries participated in a planning session in Seoul, South Korea, for a World Youth Prayer Assembly (WYPA) in 2016 or 2017. Young global leaders made the commitment to be part of the International Dream Team (IDT) and to run with the vision of calling youth from around the world to join in prayer. They were prayed for and anointed by the older generation of leaders who were present. Young leaders were from the United Kingdom, United States, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Romania, American Samoa, Nigeria, Fiji, Vietnam, India, Germany, and South Korea. A faith goal of bringing 1,254 delegates was generated from the commitment of the IDT alone. They also set fundraising goals, as each member believed God for a specific amount. One of the highlights of the meeting was a trip to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)—the border between North and South Korea. In freezing cold weather, the team’s hearts burned in prayer for the unification of Korea. It was a foretaste of what is planned for the WYPA—to bring the delegates from all nations to the border to release declarations for the freedom of North Korea and for the unification of the North and South. The group asks for prayer for the IDT members to move ahead in mobilizing their nations. –Taken from International Prayer Connections.
