2024 Week of Prayer, "Awakening," to Run Jan. 7-13

The 82nd annual Week of Prayer includes videos featuring key AG leaders delving into points of prayer that they are passionate about.
The Assemblies of God 82nd annual Week of Prayer will commence on Sunday, Jan. 7, and conclude Saturday, Jan. 13, 2024, under the theme of “Awakening.”

“We sincerely and truly believe as we mobilize the church for prayer that things will happen that otherwise wouldn’t happen,” stated General Superintendent Doug Clay in a recent message to ministers. “[But] we don’t want to just call you to prayer, we want to give you some resources to equip your people to pray more effectively.”

The 2024 Week of Prayer offers seven free, downloadable, and inspirational videos by key leaders in the Assemblies of God that cover the seven Daily Points of Prayer, including:

• Consistency — Joe Oden, national director of Prayer and Evangelism
• Repentance — Mark Batterson, pastor of National Community Church, Washington, D.C.
• Intercession — Darrell and Lori Bucher, pastors of Lima First Church, Lima, Ohio
• Evangelism — John Easter, executive director of AG World Missions
• Unity — John Lindell, pastor of James River Church, Ozark, Missouri
• Spiritual Gifts — Mike Rakes, president of Evangel University, Springfield, Missouri
• Revival — Carolyn Tennant, professor emerita at North Central University, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Each video varies from about 22 to 33 minutes in length, allowing viewers time to identify with the passion these leaders have for each of the prayer points and make it their own.

In addition to the videos, there are several other Week of Prayer support materials available for download including: a themed email heading, presentation slides (one for each day’s prayer point), and a bulletin insert with the Daily Prayer Points with descriptions listed in order. A link to prayer resources from My Healthy Church is also provided.

All the materials are available in Spanish as well, with the videos providing the Spanish translation through closed captioning.

Scripture is pretty clear that the effectual fervent prayer of righteous people avails much,” Clay noted, “[but] we cannot see the ‘availing much’ without effective fervent prayer.”
