Tens of thousands of churches with hundreds of mission organizations and prayer movements are joining forces for an epic prayer and mission initiative called GO2020. The goal is to reach one billion people who are still unreached by Christ’s Good News.
United prayer in the early Church unleashed the empowering of the Holy Spirit and ignited remarkable spiritual breakthroughs as the gospel began to spread throughout the then-known world. This same pattern of prayer preceding evangelism has been a consistent pattern in all the great revivals and mission advances from then on through church history.
GO2020 is an effort to mobilize 100 million Christians by May 2020 to pray for those in their communities who do not know Christ, as well as for unreached people groups around the world. Coupled with prayer, there is a strategic effort to share the gospel during the month of May with one billion of the 7.8 billion people in the world. The desired result is 50 million new believers integrated into new and existing churches.
John Robb of International Prayer Council says, “No one organization or movement can accomplish such a staggering feat, but if we flow together like tributaries in one unstoppable river, this can be achieved! Getting God’s heart of love for the lost through prayer will lead to our sharing Jesus with them in the power and sensitivity of the Holy Spirit just as the early Church experienced.”
