When and wherever the Kings of the earth gather it has been our practice – as World Prayer Centre working with International Prayer Connect and other partners - over a number of years to declare the Sovereignty of God, the Lordship of Christ Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit over the leaders and the nations they represent. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy (1 Timothy 2: 1-2) urging him to ‘pray with petitions, intercession and thanksgiving for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all Godliness and Holiness.’
Already prayer is taking place in the geographical area and in the actual place they will meet. We know that wherever those with power meet, ‘other powers’ will endeavour to affect the atmosphere and agenda.
We felt that as the leaders gathered we should ‘in the opposite spirit of the world’ over the three days, declare the truths from God’s word concerning the Sovereignty of God, The Lordship of Christ Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit and speak blessing over those attending, their families and their nations.
