Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ (Joel 2:17)

God says to His own Son: ‘Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance.’ If the divine Son cannot be exempted from the rule of asking, you and I cannot expect the rule to be relaxed in our favour. God will bless Elijah and send rain, but Eiljah must pray for it. If the chosen people are to prosper, Samuel must plead for it. (C.H. Spurgeon)

The New Wine Day of Prayer 2011 is an open invitation for you to come and pray for an awakening in the UK and Europe. We want to gather people from across the regions of the New Wine network to pray, responding to the words of Jesus: "And will not God judge in favour of his people who cry to him day and night?" (Luke 18).

The needs for prayer are great in our day: terror in Oslo; a Eurozone in crisis; rioting on the streets of European capitals; nationalistic tensions flaring up afresh; rising secularist agendas. These headlines call us to pray. Add to this a Church seemingly in decline and in desperate need of revival.

All is not bleak. God is at work in a myriad of ways in transformation in our nation and beyond, as we see in the New Wine movement. Across Europe and the UK, we are encouraged to see people responding to God’s call to prayer as never before, from grassroots community-based initiatives, to city and nationwide gatherings. We too want to align ourselves with God’s call to pray and so we encourage you join us on Saturday 5 November.

Hosted by Charlie & Anita Cleverly (St Aldates); Mark Bailey (Trinity Cheltenham); Andy Perry* (St Mary’s, Poole); and the New Wine HUNGRY (CSW) team. Further contributors include: John Coles* (New Wine); Michael Ramsden* (RZIM); Simon Ponsonby (St Aldates); Patrick McDonald (Viva); Terry Tennens* (International Justice Mission); as well as regional prayer leaders from cities across the UK.

The day will run from 10am–5pm (doors open at 9.30am). The event is free and there is no need to
pre-register. An offering will be taken on the day to cover costs. For directions and travel information, please click here. If you have any further queries, please email us.
