At 2:14 a.m. Iowa time, the phone of a woman in Iceland will chime, and her prayer will join with the people of London, who are praying again. An hour later, a man in Brazil joins the chorus, and people in three time zones will be praying in unity – all for revival of God’s people: at home, in their churches, in the culture.
An hour later, the first of the Canadians will join the chorus, then an hour later, Puerto Rico, then New York, until at 7:14 a.m. here in Iowa … Midwesterners will join the people in dozens of countries, all together praying at the same time.
It’s the If 7:14 Day of Prayer! Beginning at 7:14 a.m., wherever you are – work, home, or on vacation – on July 14, 2016, the world will be uniting in humble prayer, asking God to hear, forgive, and heal our land.
Already over 20,000 people in 30 countries have downloaded the free If 7:14 phone app, which is launching this day of virtual prayer!
EDITOR’S NOTE: We are receiving widespread reports of app glitches today. Should we be surprised? Our enemy cannot be happy with a global, united day of prayer! Thankfully, there is a workaround: On your app, click the “Devotions” button at the bottom, then click on the “If 7:14 Day of Prayer” entry at the top. ALL of today’s prayer prompts are there, so you can pray each hour of the day. Thank you for joining us in a day of prayer for revival!
How does it work?
At 7:14 a.m. your time on Thursday, July 14, the app will alert you with an encouraging message to remind you to pray. Then every hour throughout the day, you can check back in with the app for a fresh encouraging message and join the next time zone, as they begin their day of prayer with you. Finally, at 7:14 p.m., the app will alert again with a final, uplifting reminder* to pray for revival in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
All you need to do to join in this virtual day of united, global prayer, is to download the free app! There’s nothing you need to buy, ever, to participate in the If 7:14 global rhythm of prayer.
*Before and after July 14, the app sends alerts, twice a day at 7:14 a.m. and 7:14 p.m., to remind you and your prayer partners around the world to continue to pray twice daily for revival.
