Worldwide Call for Fasting, Prayer and Repentance

“We now together call the world to join with us in 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance from 6th August  to 14th September 2013 culminating in an International Day of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance on Saturday the 14th of September 2013. (Yom Kippur).”

This call to prayer  was the result of an historic teleconference call held June 1st, and led by Warwick Marsh, the head of the National Day of Prayer in Australia. Seventeen prayer leaders from six different were on the call itself, but these prayer leaders were in direct contact with leaders from more than 100 nations. The resulting prayer initiative, called "Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call," is a call to the Church around the world to unify for 40 days of prayer.

Many believe this initiative is very much of God because of how quickly it came together. Prayer leaders in multiple nations began getting a sense that the world Church needs to be called to repent and pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit for revival in the Church and spiritual awakening.

Each nation will put its own twist on the event, but all will especially unify by focusing on four points:

  1. Pray for a worldwide outpouring of the Holy Spirit for revival and transformation of the nations of the world.
  2. Pray for a billion people to find Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
  3. Pray for an end to abortion and for God to turn back the tide of death and immorality that is sweeping the nations of the world.
  4. Pray for a multiplication of prayer, praise and worship of Jesus Christ across the world as never before, to bring great glory to God.

"God seems to be up to something," said prayer leader Dave Butts, chairman of America's National Prayer Committee. "Within the U.S. church leaders are sensing the need to join this profound event, but that we need to focus particularly on repentance. August needs to be a time for deep repentance in the Church in America.”

Butts noted several major repentance events are already scheduled within this time period. On August 12, Mission America has called for a Solemn Assembly for spiritual leaders to be held in Chicago. The Awakening Alliance is again holding Cry Out America--a day of prayer and repentance on September 11--as it has done for the last several years. And a relatively new prayer event, called Ten Days of Prayer, Fasting and Worship will be held in multiple communities across the United States for the ten days between The Day of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement (Sept. 4-14;

“I believe that the Spirit of God is calling the Church to humble itself and pray in repentance,” said Butts. “Whatever is coming to America, it is best handled on our knees. This is such a recent development that all I can tell you is to pray according to the Call to Prayer above, and to keep watching the websites for PrayerConnect-, and America’s National Prayer Committee-  for additional information and help.” will post a daily prayer guide to use during these 40 days.
