Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day

World Day of Prayer

Annually on the first Wednesday in November

Prayer is essential to reaching the children of the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry cannot be accomplished in our own strength, but only in complete dependence on the Lord. At Child Evangelism Fellowship®, the importance of prayer as our foundation is one of ourculture points.

“It is not the work we do, the meetings we hold or the decisions we make that bring the greatest advances in the work; it is the time spent before the throne of God in prayer, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that brings power, laborers, and resources into the ministry.”

Every year on the first Wednesday in November, we set aside the entire day to bring requests before the Lord. At the International Headquarters, we engage in corporate prayer, prayer walks, small group gatherings, and individual times of petitioning the Lord for the work of reaching the next generation. At other places across the country and around the world, people gather in offices, restaurants, churches, etc to pray.

We hope that you will join us in praying for the children of the world on Wednesday, November 1. Watch the video above to learn more about how you can be involved.

“To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees.”
