May 5-May 14, 2016

Beginning on Ascension Day, May 5, 2016, it is expected that millions of Christians around the world will find ways to pray night and day throughout the ten days leading to Pentecost.

Gather in creative ways. Many are forming prayer chains to build bonfires of 24-hours-a-day prayer. Others will meet for an hour or two of focused prayer. Some will be fasting. Look for how the Holy Spirit may give you fresh ways to pray with family and friends.

This website is full of resources to help you plan your gathering and pray with others:


Global Day Organizer Guide

The Global Day Organizer Guide, or the “G DOG” as we call it, is a practical and proven resource on how to organize a successful multi-church or citywide Global Day of Prayer event. The insights and practical tips contained in the GDOG have been tried and tested and will help you put together a well-organized event that brings glory and honor to God.

The GDOG is a 24-page downloadable PDF. It covers everything from how to get started, what GDOP is and what it is not, mobilizing pastors and churches, establishing small working groups and planning the Global Day of Prayer event. We encourage you to download the Global Day Organizer Guide (PDF – 31 KB), print it and give it to the leaders on your coordinating team. You will be glad you did. We have been told “we could not have done it without the G DOG.”
