Thousands of leaders from as many as 220 nations are expected to gather in Jakarta, Indonesia, next year under the banner of “Let the New Wave of His Glory Fill the Earth!” The World Prayer Assembly (May 14-18, 2012) is a call to ministry leaders from all walks of life to join in a global prayer movement based on the vision of the whole earth being filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (Hab. 2:14).
The Assembly will be hosted by the nations of Indonesia and South Korea, where vibrant movements of prayer have grown exponentially in the last several years. The first similar event took place in Seoul, Korea, in 1984, and launched an international prayer movement and unprecedented efforts to share the gospel of Jesus throughout the world. In recent years, hundreds of thousands of Christians have also gathered in prayer throughout Indonesia. These two nations are eager to host the world in a new wave of global prayer and evangelization.
Now leaders are invited back to another united worldwide prayer movement. It is anticipated that 5,000 to 7,000 ministry leaders will seek God together in significant times of prayer, listening, and response to the Lord. The criteria for attending the Assembly include:
- Ministry/mission leaders from both church and marketplace
- Prayer network leaders
- Leaders serving in all walks of life (arts, media, marketplace, church, development of poor, education, family, government)
- Youth, student, and child leaders
- Anyone who has a heart for prayer and is making an impact in his/her community or sphere of influence.
A special emphasis will be on raising up the younger generation to become cutting-edge leaders in the global prayer and mission movement. Young leaders, students, and children will make up one-third of the participants (especially those under age 30).
