Pray in 2020 on the 20th of each month at 20:20 for 20 minutes
Pray … that God will give many opportunities to speak about Christ. (Colossians 4:3 NLT)
This is the invitation from HOPE Together to Christians of all denominations.
Through Prayer 2020 we are asking God to work through all that is done in 2020 – personal witness; church outreach plans in villages, towns and cities; stadium events – evangelisation in all its many forms.
HOPE’s executive director Roy Crowne says, ‘Already this is catching the imagination of Christians around the world. 2020 is such a significant year and Prayer 2020 will be a key part of the year.’

In 2020 churches and ministries are working together for an intentional, strategic and Spirit-filled year of mission across the UK called Advance 2020. HOPE Together is one of the major partners alongside many others.
'We want to see the gift of the evangelist released to equip the whole people ofGod as witnesses, so the people we love and pray for, who don’t yet know Jesus, can have an opportunity to hear about him in relevant ways and respond,’ says Roy.
Rev Canon Yemi Adedeji, HOPE’s associate director says, ‘Let’s start the year with prayer and continue to pray alone, in twos and threes, and as churches or groups of churches praying for more fruit in evangelism.’
Dr Rachel Jordan-Wolf, HOPE’s assistant director, says, ‘We would love to see photos of the people you are praying with as the year goes on – we will be posting photos on social media to encourage you – use the hashtag #prayer2020 and let’s pray that God opens hearts to the gospel.’
Bookmarks and business cards to remind you to pray in 2020, are available from the HOPE shop.
