About 15 Days of Prayer
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
316NOW invites you to join us and thousands of other fellow Christians in powerful and effective prayer for the gospel’s blessings to flow over all 1.4 billion souls in China. Officially only 5% are believers.
An ideal time for prayer
China’s New Year and Spring Festival celebrations are an ideal time for Christians to focus their prayers on that country.
This is the most important of China’s national holidays. The celebration is marked with parties, with traveling, and with family gatherings. Essential are gift giving and commitments to new beginnings. In 2017 that festival takes place between February 16 and March 3 (15 days).
Pray for the gospel's spread in China
This is the time for us to pray for the spiritual life of multiple millions in China. More believers there will set off eternal celebrations in heaven and cause new spiritual beginnings to happen across that nation. That’s the purpose of the Fifteen Days of Prayer effort.
Use the Chinese New Year and Spring Festival to pray for the Christians in China and for the Spirit to reach hundreds of millions more souls there. Our prayers have our Father’s promise that he will hear and act on them.
316NOW's 15 Days of Prayer program will make an eternal difference for millions of souls.
