In the Spring of 1990 several of us felt a special burden from God to pray for Lebanon as it was going through the worst time of its civil strife. Four months after the first planned Day of Prayer for Lebanon was held, in the providence of God, the civil war in Lebanon came to an abrupt end. In that year, the Lebanon Prayer Group came into existence.
Subsequently, we continued holding a yearly Day of Prayer event, moving on to include the entire Arab World and USA. For the last 30 years we have seen the Lord answer our prayers in dramatic & meticulous ways. We believe strongly that in this last decade alone, hundreds of thousands of new Christian converts in the Arab World are but a direct answer to these prayers.
Today we are faced with many great challenges:
Over one billion Unreached Muslims stare us in the face, Terrorism has become a global concern, Potentially explosive conditions in the Middle-East are numerous, and Persecution of the church is growing. In view of these massive challenging needs, we must have a sense of urgency to pray and minister to our communities continually.
Our God is wondering: when will we take boldly the great privilege He gave us to advance His Kingdom thru Prevailing, and Persistent Prayer? Numerous times He taught us that Prevailing Prayer is the key to effective Evangelism and the sending of “Workers into the harvest” (Matthew 9:36-38). And more Numerous times He guaranteed that prayers, in His name, will be answered: “You will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7), “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” ( Mark 11:24).
