20:20 prayer for 2020 mission
Next year's date is a bit of a gift for people with short memories. And Hope Together are making the most of it with a 20:20 prayer campaign to fuel the national evangelism initiative.
HOPE Together is inviting Christians of all denominations to pray for 20 minutes on the 20th of every month, throughout 2020, each evening at 20:20.
HOPE’s executive director Roy Crowne says, "2020 is such a significant year and Prayer 2020 will be a key part of the year."
In 2020 churches and ministries are working together for an intentional, strategic and Spirit-filled year of mission across the UK called Advance 2020. HOPE is one of the major partners alongside many others.
"We want to see the gift of the evangelist released so the people we love and pray for, who don’t yet know Jesus, can have an opportunity to hear about him in relevant ways and respond," says Roy.
Rev Canon Yemi Adedeji, HOPE’s associate director says, "Let’s start the year with prayer and continue to pray alone, in twos and threes, and as churches or groups of churches praying for more fruit in evangelism."
Dr Rachel Jordan-Wolf, HOPE’s assistant director, says, "HOPE Together will provide 12 prayer themes for the year, starting with resources for New Year’s Eve, when many churches gather to see in the New Year with prayer."
Prayer 2020 resources will be available in the autumn at hopetogether.org.uk/prayer2020
