World Prays is a movement of churches covering their cities and nations in 24/7 prayer. Our mission is Every Church in Every Nation a House of Prayer. We are a multiethnic, interdenominational, Jesus-centered prayer movement.
We believe that the world is in desperate need of spiritual awakening and that only united prayer can revive our communities. As J. Edwin Orr observed, “No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.” We are believing for churches of all sizes and theological backgrounds in every nation to adopt a monthly day of prayer and join us in praying for the greatest spiritual awakening in history.
In January 2009, churches in Austin, Texas under the leadership of Pastor Trey Kent and churches in Bellingham, Washington under the leadership of Pastor Jason Hubbard began covering their communities in 24/7 prayer. Their model was simple—each church adopted a monthly day of prayer or half day of prayer. Believers prayed in 30- or 60-minute segments from home, school, work or church.
On January 1, 2017, Pastor Brian Alarid and a group of pastors launched New Mexico Prays using this same model. Today there are over 100 churches in 27 cities and towns that are covering New Mexico in unceasing prayer. On On October 9, 2017, we launched America Prays to unite and equip 40,000 churches in 24/7 prayer for a national spiritual awakening. By Spring 2018, the movement had spread to other nations and we launched World Prays to serve as a relational network of pastors and leaders who are covering their nations in 24/7 prayer.
