Transform World 2020 IHOPKC Prayer Summit
By the time we came to the end of the seventy hour continuous prayer manyparticipants used expressions like: “convergence”, “unity”, “streams flowingtogether in one river.”
We, the 200 mission leaders from across the globe that are part of the TransformWorld 2020 interfaced with some 2000 intercessors at the International House of Prayer Kansas City on March 24-27, 2013, saw God at work in this historic gathering. We came together for the Transform World 2020 Prayer Summit joining together for seventy continuous hours of prayer.
An Historic Time
“The time was historic and life changing for IHOP. Wow! The Transform World was amazing in what they brought to our spiritual family. We look forward to 2016.” Mike Bickle, Director of International House of Prayer in Kansas City
We celebrated with joy on hearing what God is doing as His people come and work together in accomplishing His agenda to transform the nations through our united obedience. We have seen servant leadership at work in the lives of our leaders and facilitators. Truly we beheld, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! (Ps 133:1)
The recent Transformed World-IHOPKC Prayer Summit from March 24-27, 2013 has left a deep imprint in the lives of our staff, students and many who are connected to us. Daniel Lim, CEO IHOPKC
More than 100,000 prayer gatherings or individual intercessors had joined the TW2020-IHOPKC prayer summit globally along with the 2000 intercessors locally in Kansas City that sustained the 70 hour prayer and worship vigil. It is safe to conclude that more than 1 million intercessors in 130 nations have stood in agreement to pray through various aspects of the 7 global challenges, 7 spheres of society, 10 geographical regions, The Back to Jerusalem Mandate, the 4/14 windows Global initiative and the Israel Mandate. We believe a significant birthing of the Transformed World 2020 Global initiatives has taken place within the context 24/7 prayer with worship.
We heard the passion of Christian leaders who presented their respective perspectives and plan in transforming the nations of the world. Such presentations of mission strategists, leaders and practitioners, were followed by intense prayers not only of mostly youth intercessors gathered at IHOPKC, but joined by a million prayer warriors around the globe who participated via live stream broadcast.
TW2020-IHOPKC pioneered a unique and strategic model for future mission-prayer gatherings with 24/7 prayer connecting prayer groups around the world and opportunities for mission and prayer leadership to confer together under the canopy of united intercession,” John Robb, chairman, International Prayer Council, International Facilitator of World Prayer Assembly 2012
The extraordinary interface of mission leaders and intercessory army released God’s anointing like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes (Ps 133:2).
Together we affirmed the need to be fully dependent on God as we let Him use us in overcoming the diverse challenges, impacting the different spheres, and reaching all the regions and generations for the Lord Jesus Christ.
As we sought God’s face, we resolved to work together with greater sense of urgency to fulfill the task accomplishing the great commission in our generation.
As we rely on His empowerment, we are confident that God’s favor and provision will be released like the dew of Hermon, which falls on mountains of Zion. For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life forevermore (Ps 133:3).
Exact Program Replicated in Brazil
I am writing from Brazil where we connected with Ana Paula and her team for their worship conference with 13,000 present and millions of Brazilians connecting. There were many lives dramatically changed here as they prayed the entire 70 hours! What a massive impact was made by Transform World here in Belo Horizonte! Cindy Jacobs of Generals Of Intercession.
