Prayer is vital to the work of The Salvation Army and we take it very seriously.
Our Worldwide Prayer Meeting takes place every Thursday morning - people are encouraged to commit to a specific half-hour time slot and prayer for the mission of the international Salvation Army. The prayer meeting, introduced by General Linda Bond, has been likened to a 'Mexican wave of prayer', as it continues in each international time zone. Currently, 129 different countries are represented - thousands of people around the world pray each week.
Since January 2011 Salvationists from around the world have also been called to 24-7 Prayer. This involves united, focused intercession - the need for justice for the oppressed: a day-and-night cry for justice.
