 Global Day of Prayer

What do you think about this? A South African businessman started this "global day of prayer" a few years ago, and now it has gained astonishing momentum. It takes place on May 27th, Pentecost Sunday (as they call it). Churches in most nations participate, many denominations are pulling together on it, as well as the Roman Catholics...

Last year's event was touted as the "the largest prayer meeting in the history of the world."

edit - videos to youtube and other sites are prohibted on sermonindex.net due to vulgar and questionable content.

But anyway, what do you think about this? More canned stuff? Ecumenical agenda?

My own feelings? I don't doubt many many sincere sheep of God's pasture are involved in this. But the day of great deception Jesus prophesied would come is upon us! Keep your heads up, people of God.

 Re: Global Day of Prayer

...I had provided a link for a "promo" video on Global Day of Prayer being shown on youtube, but I guess it's been edited out.

 Re:

I have many question about this..
I did the 24/7 prayer tent
I see the same thing, that happening with global day of prayer as with 24/7 prayer
Makeing it whoever wants to come, come and pray.
People would come, praying. But I am not sure God heard all the prayers that were made. Frist some were not saved, and says he dosn't listen to unsaved. It seems they don't care who comes to pray, just come and pray. I don't think it is right to co-work with darkness, what does light have to do with the dark? Light shins in darkness, but not work with it. Darkness can't help light. It is wrong to tell those who come and pray and God will bless you. Why do we pray? We pray because we are broken for our nation. we pray because God is not getting honor. Is this why people are coming to pray, to be blessed? When I was in the prayer tent people came and went. When it was over people went back to their lives. now they said that people would help people after? I have never done anything with the global day of prayer until this year. There is a pastor from Africa coming to Tucson to speak for global day of prayer. I am to pray for him as he speaks. But he is with pray quake you can look and tell me what you think.

I think that they are bosting in the number of people who came to pray. But what about those who truly came to know the Lord? what is being preached at these events? please I would like to know what people think about this event. How could God ues it? what good could come it ?
How could it be hurtful?

In his love

 Re: Global Day of Prayer

There are a couple of things that trouble me about this.

One, this is part of the ecumenical agenda, part of the false unity that is coming into being in the denominational churches these days. (To make no mention of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches being involved.) But even among the Protestant/fundamentalist/pentecostal/charismaticdenominations they are fabricating a "unity" in which you can continue to maintain your denominational differences and identity (things that have torn and divided the Body of Christ for hundreds of years) ...and yet can come together under a great ecumenical umbrella. And this is supposed to be pleasing to God? Christians are assuming that this kind of unity meets God's expectation "that they all may be one." It does not. Yet many genuine sheep of God's pasture all over the world are involved in this. Where is their discernment? Why have their shepherds not taught them discernment? Their shepherds have failed them.

The second thing is that young people are being encouraged, as part of this global day of prayer, to go find the highest point of their city and meet there, and "do something creative for God." I'm hearing this emphasis on "being creative" more and more these days. But where in Scripture am I told to be inventive, be creative, do my own thing, to please God?

The Son of God did not do this. When the Devil tempted Him in the wilderness to be creative, and turn the stones into bread, He recognized it as a temptation, and resisted it. The rule of HIS life was, "The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He seeth the Father do" (Jn 5.19). Yet the leadership are teaching the young to get out there and come up with their own good ideas, and find some "creative" way to worship and please God.

This is disturbing. If you can find a way to watch the promo video for the Global Day of Prayer on Youtube, you'll see on the Canadian Venue young people dancing reggae (I think that's what it was) as "their creative way" to worship God!

More and more you are broken up for the things taking place in God's heritage. Woe unto us for these things! God has an issue with the shepherds these days, for not teaching His people discernment!

 Re:

false unity, I think this is very true!!

But even among the Protestant/fundamentalist/pentecostal/charismaticdenominations they are fabricating a "unity" in which you can continue to maintain your denominational differences and identity (things that have torn and divided the Body of Christ for hundreds of years)

maybe there's a reason these were divided?

I don't think we can go to God and worship hpw ever we want, can we?
in his love

 Re:

I saw the the video, I have seen this kind of danceing at an event before. when I frist came to know the Lord and at the time I thought it was cool, but now I see it can't honor God.
I do think that there is dance that can honor God. I took dance for two years, and with much prayer, God said there is a wrong and right way. That is in the SPirit and in the flesh. If someone is dancing after we want to saw it moved you to worship God. Not that it could hinder you.


there is a Church uganda ( Christain Life Church In Kampala. They said it grew from 7 people to 2,000 in two weeks and it say's to day it has 40,000 members. and it has planted 600 Churchs. of differnt denominations. Maybe this is God's mighty work?


If we look at Church history our forfather were very careful when they allowed someone to be a member. So how did they check that all 40,00 are really saved? and who is helping them in their walk now?

This man who is the pastor is the one who is speaking for the Gobal day of prayer.
there three verse is based on 2 chorn 7:14
: if my poeple humble themselves...
and John 17:21 Be one as he is one
John 13:35
if my disicples, if you love one other.

These are very good verse. But I worried, because it dosn't talk about Christ at all
The death, the cross, our sins. What are they repenting from?


In his love

 Re:

Yes, I know there is such a thing as "dancing in the Spirit." I've seen a little of it, and it is something done spontaneously in the anointing. Can't be learned, can't be practised.

...As to the church in Uganda, I don't know anything about it. But I do know God is meeting the hunger of His people in many "third world" countries, as they are called.

And it seems many of them are quite involved in this Global Day of Prayer.

As I said earlier, I have no doubt many genuine sheep of God's pasture are involved in this thing. They need to be taught discernment, and I believe God is going to teach them.

We see much mixture of good and bad, real and false, flesh and Spirit, anointing and anti-anointing... in the churches of our day. All over the world.

God will not leave things in this state forever. A great purifying is at hand. God will bring an end to the day of "mixture." The tares will be separataed from the wheat. The good fish will be brought together in vessels, and the bad fish thrown away.

This purifying is a great work of God we are in the beginnings of. He will complete His work. "Then shall the righteous shine as the sun in the kingdom of their Father." (Mt. 13.43).

So if some have a little more discernment, a little more light, than others, let us walk in our pathway with fear and trembling, and with grace. The only security against deception for any of us is not in trusting in our knowledge, but in a close, intimate walk with Him who is Himself the Light.
