DAY AND NIGHT PRAYER FOR REVIVAL
Prayer networks in the Nordic nations are joining hands to pray together for one year. - We have a sense of belonging together, the nations with flags marked by the cross of Jesus." The nordic nations have a common Christian foundation and a common calling for world missions. It is time to see the foundations restored, our nations transformed and the calling to missions revived in the north!
In September Sweden finished one year of prayer where churches, organizations and networks joined together to pray for Sweden. The leadership in "Sverigebönen" and "Sweden 365" felt that the next step was to unite all the Nordic nations in the same endeavour. Sweden invited prayer - networks in the other Nordic countries to join in for one more year of prayer. The response has been positive, and we are taking this step of unity and prayer for the sake of Gods plans and purposes.
Since Kjell Sjöberg proclaimed the vision of "sanctified Vikings" that would bring Gods love and truth to Europe in the 1980's, intercessors in the Nordic nations have met across our borders to seek God for His ways. In 2015, "The Nordic Summit" was held in Stockholm on the initiative of ICCC and Sverigebönen. This conference picked up some of the themes that Kjell Sjöberg carried throughout his ministry.
We believe the Nordic nations have a role to play in Europe and beyond. We are free countries that have become a place of refuge, a sanctuary in times of trouble. Our prayer is that our hearts will melt together to beat with the heartbeat of God for the world. As we are brothers and sisters, we also want to go as one family with the gospel to the ends of the earth. Now it is time for the church to come together in unity and pray for the fires of revival to burn among us again.
Day and night, there will be an ongoing prayer-chain from one nation to the other. Sweden starts on Mondays, Norway continues on Tuesdays, then Iceland Wednesdays, Finland on Thursdays, Denmark on Fridays, Shetland, Orkney, Caithness and Sutherland on Saturdays and Faroe Island on Sundays.
