A call to prayer

An international call to 40 days of prayer, fasting and repentance asks Christians around the world to pray for revival and transformation of the nations.

The Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call, originating in Australia and supported by Christian leaders in many countries, asks for prayer beginning today, August 6, and ending with an international day of prayer, fasting and repentance on Yom Kippur on September 14.

It has a four-point prayer focus:

1. Pray for a worldwide outpouring of the Holy Spirit for revival and transformations of the nations of the world.

2. Pray for a billion people to find Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

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 to God across the world as never before, to bring great glory to God.

As a writer puts it in the free 40-page prayer guide: "It is time for a new revolution, and it must begin in the household of faith; a revolt against ungodliness and a return to godly standards of pure and holy lives. There is a better way to live; righteous peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; it’s time that we showed the world it is possible."
