Prayer at the Heart of America, For the Heart of America is a national call to prayer taking place Friday, July 23rd, at the geographical center of the 48 contiguous states. This Prayer Gathering is the result of a vision birthed in the heart of Doug Small and his passion for a fresh awakening across the United States of America.
Prayer At the Heart is a call to the family of faith, and the invitation is extended to everyone who believes that God is able to heal our land and that He is our hope for revival and restoration. Without question, our nation has turned its back on its Judeo-Christian heritage and foundation. The truth of God’s Word is being ignored and rejected. Our sin has increased, and the moral fiber of our nation has been defiled.
Biblically and historically, we discover that we must turn our face and faith toward God as a nation. The call is for the people of God who are called by His name, humble themselves and pray. Seek His face and turn from our wicked ways with the promise that He will hear our prayers, forgive our sins and heal our land.
We pray, Yes, Lord, have mercy upon America and send us a fresh awakening. You will want to join us in Lebanon, Kansas, Friday, July 23rd, as we make our appeal to heaven. Help us spread the word, and let’s make the journey to the heart of America as we pray at the heart of America.
IPC and a number of our partners across USA are partnering with this event.

Hosted by Momentum Conference Australia — UPRising Australia 2021 is a gathering of those who dare to believe that prayers are heard, of those who believe their voices matter and that with one voice, the course of history can change. We will gather those who will speak the heart of God into being.
With so many overwhelming issues, we are gathering those whose reality is not just seen with the human eyes, but those who know that there is a Kingdom that has come and is coming. We will gather. We will pray. We will see the change in our regions and our nations. This is United Prayer Rising.
This conference consists of four days of prayer, worship and intercession for change in our regions and our nations. Conference Days 1 to 3 are free of charge whilst the final day (i.e. Day 4) is a ticketed event in which we will be gathering at Rosehill Gardens for a Solemn Assembly.

Feedback from the recent G7 Prayer Summit, written by IPC Senior Advisor - Brian Mills:
The G7 is a gathering of heads of State from some of the world's most wealthy nations. From 10th to 13th June, they met in the UK (the host country) in a most beautiful seaside location in the county of Cornwall in the far South-West of England.
Why was this important? Well, since the Coronavirus pandemic began eighteen months ago, it has been one of the first face-to-face gathering of any of the world leaders. Decisions taken there are likely to influence the planet in multiple ways for years to come.
At this summit, the prime areas for discussion were flagged as - a global response to the pandemic, the economy, climate change and security issues. Each of these had to some extent been looked at in detail in advance by the respective Governments' ministers responsible. So, at the summit corporate commitments were made, some of which have been announced, some probably will never be!
At previous similar summits over the past 25 years, there had been a gathering of praying people from the different nations somewhere in the vicinity of the summit. This year, because of the Covid restrictions in place within the UK, this was deemed not possible.
So why pray about political decisions? Firstly, Scripture informs us that "petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." In other words, the advance of God's kingdom is directly related to our praying for those in authority.
We are also aware that, whenever the kings of the earth come together, so do the principalities and powers arraigned against us and Christ. Some want Satan to rule this world. We don't. So it is imperative for us to pray, in order that Satan doesn't have His way, but rather that the kingdom of God is advanced throughout the world. Christ is king over all the earth.
This year a Global G7 Prayer Summit came together in a way that was different from anything attempted before, and on a scale that was global. For each of the four days there was an online "virtual" season of prayer for 12 hours a day, led by prayer leaders mostly from within the UK, but with some significant help from elsewhere, and participation from many nations.
Many of those involved had little experience of praying about global issues, so for some it was a steep learning curve. A total of approximately 500 people participated in hour-long slots during the 48 hours of prayer – some multiple times – during the four days.
A few prayed through the night in their country. All of this was coordinated by the World Prayer Centre team in Birmingham, England, to whom a big "thank you" is due. Their expertise and previous experience in this kind of summit was pivotal.
But it all began in Cornwall. For the past five months a group of church and ministry leaders have been meeting weekly online to pray, at the invitation of the local MP who was responsible for hosting this prestigious gathering in his Parliamentary constituency.
Throughout that time he has seen how prayer, in relation to the issues as they emerged, had been answered.
Consistently we had prayed for the presence of God, Father, Son and Spirit to be experienced.
That these world leaders would become aware of the God of creation, as they looked at the incredible beauty of His creation; or the needs of the poorer nations and peoples as they considered the way to combat poverty and the pandemic.
In addition, God had led several groups to walk and pray, do on-site prayer in various locations, and to join together to pray. Teams of young people engaged creatively. The churches in the area had mounted a witness, with crosses erected in the streets, with rubbish nailed to them! And on the Sunday beforehand, an online prayer evening brought together over 200 Christians in Cornwall from many expressions of church – hosted by the MP!
Contact was made with a team of chaplains to the more than 5,000 police who had been drafted into the area to look after security issues. They testified that it was a mostly peaceful summit. None of the anticipated violence and trouble materialised. Instead the police were welcomed, blessed practically and spiritually and went home with glowing reports of their time in Cornwall. The word "open heaven" was mentioned a number of times – both in prayer and in the response of those on the streets.
The Prayer summit leadership had in advance set up connections with people on the ground who could provide information for prayer as and when necessary.
The Prayer Summit itself was interspersed with worship, led prayer, declarations, Scripture, break-out rooms, simultaneous audible prayer.
We had consistently prayed "Your kingdom come...Your will be done....On earth, as it is in Heaven...." We had declared an "open heaven" over the area – and so it proved to be – naturally and spiritually. So we praise God for the answers.
This theme continued throughout the summit.
So what of the future? Well, there are many other gatherings of world leaders occurring regularly. Maybe God will lead you, wherever you are, to plan or be part of initiatives to pray throughout such summits - for the leaders and the decisions they make to be in accordance with God's agenda and purpose for this planet, and not man's.

Our desire is to raise more than 100 prayer champions who will mobilize children on this day to come together in different locations, countries, states, Local Government etc to pray specifically for the Unreached People groups.
In Africa, we have about 1,000 Unreached People groups. Globally, there are still over 7,000 remaining UPGs. That is about 3.7 billion people who have not heard about Jesus.
We invite you to join in this effort to mobilize families and children.
