World Prayer Assembly

World Prayer Assembly

World Prayer Assembly May 14-18, 2012 Jakarta, Indonesia

We invite you  the World Prayer Assembly, a once-in-a generation encounter with the Lord, with cutting-edge ministry leaders and praying people from around the world. Reserve a place for yourself, your friends, colleagues and family members who would like to come.

The Venue for World Prayer Assembly (WPA 2012)

The World Prayer Assembly (May 14-18, 2012) is taking place in the midst of a modern-day spiritual awakening in the nation of Indonesia. Millions of Indonesians are now connected in prayer for their nation. 24/7 “prayer towers” are operating in many cities, and over two-hundred thousand trained child intercessors are crying out to God for the transformation of their nation. The Lord is moving in this vast archipelago of 17,000 islands with many diverse people groups. The Church has united in an extraordinary way, creating an environment for spiritual and societal transformation that is spreading across the region.

Thousands of prayer, mission and marketplace leaders, along with on-fire youth and children, will gather in Jakarta to seek the Lord together in a new paradigm for an international congress. Like the five leaders at Antioch (Acts 13:1-3), we want to “let God be God” and seek Him together for His strategies of “prayer-action” for our hurting world. It was the first International Prayer Assembly, almost 30 years ago in Seoul, Korea, in 1984 where the seeds for the current global prayer movement were sown. Korea will serve as the co-host with Indonesia for the WPA.

World Prayer Assembly Programs

Special track sessions will create a forum for participants to focus on international issues, cutting-edge models of ministry, and ministry spheres (“7 Mountains”) for which they have a passion. And, while there will be world-renowned speakers, presenters and facilitators for both plenary and track sessions (such as David Yonggi Cho, Enoch Adeboye, Lee Younghoon, Luis Bush, Dick Eastman, Suzette Hattingh, Ed Silvoso, Graham Power, Brian Mills, Ian Cole, Pete Greig, Niko Nyotorahardjo, Iman Santoso, Gloria Au Yeung, Bennie Mostert and many others), we want to hear from one Personality primarily, the Lord Himself. All speakers will, therefore, share briefly and in a way that facilitates our time of encounter with God and one another.

The WPA will be led inter-generationally with youth and children helping to facilitate plenary and other sessions. There will also be strong youth and children tracks. This will help launch the next generation of men and women of God to lead the prayer and mission movements. We want to see modern Josephs, Esthers, Daniels, and Deborahs raised up so that God will use to impact the nations.

Then, on May 17, we will gather in the national stadium with 100,000 others, including 20,000 children intercessors and 20,000 on-fire youth. Over 350 cities of Indonesia will host simultaneous gatherings, connected by live television with the Jakarta stadium. Tens of millions more will join us across the world by satellite TV and Internet streaming. As one of the largest prayer meetings in history, it has the potential to change our planet in fundamental ways.

We believe the WPA will be a stepping stone to the fulfillment of the ancient prophet’s prediction that “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14). It will also be a direct answer of Jesus’ prayer in John 17 as Christ’s people unite in prayer around the world.

Please pray for the World Prayer Assembly and join us in Jakarta for this unique time in the presence of the Lord as His people gather from around the world. If there are others in your ministry network that you feel should be with us, feel free to share this letter of invitation with them.
