World Prayer Assembly Reunion Tracks Progress


Adult and youth leaders from the international prayer movement gathered in Hong Kong in late 2012 for a reunion to report on the prayer movement’s progress since the May 2012 World Prayer Assembly (WPA) and to consider the way forward. A team of younger people helped to draft the program, led all the worship segments, and co-facilitated the event with the older generation.

Some of the encouraging highlights and reports presented at the WPA reunion include the following:

1. The Chinese delegation (more than 300 came to WPA from China) hope to one day have a large prayer assembly at the enormous Tiananmen Square in central Beijing. They testified that the WPA ignited a burning vision in the hearts of the Chinese to build 24/7 prayer efforts in various areas. These Chinese believers also carried out a 40-day fast for China, are developing a strategic prayer movement, and are sending prayer concerns to one another around the country. God has put the nations on their hearts, especially the Arab nations and Israel.

2. The Indonesian delegation reported several results from the WPA in their country:

  • A number of leaders in the majority religion received the same dream about Jesus at the same time and were baptized.
  • Many are coming to Christ, and 4,000 new believers were added in one month to a church near Jakarta.
  • In almost every one of the 378 cities that took part in the WPA, an overwhelming number of churches continue to pray together in many parts of the nation.
  • Youth leaders were given a five-room apartment for a prayer tower and mission center that they can use for five years. • After the WPA a number of Christians were elected to political offices.
  • Leaders launched the “My Home” effort to pray, love, and care for unsaved friends and neighbors.
  • The Indonesian team is sending out 1,000 “global prayer ambassadors” to various parts of the world.

3. The Brazilian delegation also related the impact of the transformational prayer efforts in their nation:

  • Authorities arrested and convicted 38 corrupt politicians.
  • In a city known as the “capital of witchcraft,” a church full of converted witches and wizards grew from 100 to 1,200 attenders.
  • Many Christians have become mayors (18 districts) or members of the city councils.
  • Two million people took part in a large unified worship gathering in São Paulo.
  • The country has seen a new wave of salvation and economic growth.
  • Several youth and prayer movements have sprung up in universities.
  • Prayer movements also have begun within the police force.

4. The Indian delegation related the growth of the Children in Prayer efforts there. The Royal Kids now count 32,000 praying kids among their ranks, and this organization aims to raise up 100,000 children to be used of God to bring revival to churches and nations. Youth leaders are mobilizing churches and colleges to begin 24/7 prayer efforts. To follow more of the World Prayer Assembly results, go to wpa2012.org.
