The Seventh-day Adventist Church throughout the Inter-American Division (IAD) is seeking to engage every church member in the territory in a coordinated 24-hour prayer and fasting experience on July 3-4, 2020. The activity is part an on-going comprehensive plan across Inter-America that will mark the end of the Adventist world church’s “100 Days of Prayer” initiative.
The prayer initiative, which began in late March, was initiated by the General Conference’s Revival and Reformation Committee. The initiative directs members to pray for the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit to be poured out on the church and to empower members for mission during this time of the pandemic crisis.
“We wanted to engage the entire Inter-American Division membership and leadership in intercessory prayer to address the actual spiritual, physical, emotional, social and economic needs of members and those in the wider society,” said Pastor Samuel Telemaque, Sabbath school director and main organizer of the event on July 4th. “We will have the opportunity to celebrate what God has done in the lives of His people through the ministry of intercessory prayer during the past 100 days.”
The online celebration, which will conclude the end of 100 days of coordinated prayer sessions, seminars, messages, and a comprehensive media campaign, will represent the beginning of a new culture across the territory when it comes to intercessory prayer, said Telemaque.
