Hope 2020 is a national prayer initiative that joins us together each month. On the 20th day of each month at 20:20 (8.20pm) the nations Christians will be on their knees praying for God to move in our land.
In the words of the Hope leadership: When we felt prompted to establish the Prayer 2020 monthly call to prayer, we had no idea how different life would be this year, but we are still believing that God has called us to pray for a significant harvest in 2020.
Through Prayer 2020 we are asking God to work through all that is done in 2020 – personal witness and outreach plans in villages, towns and cities – evangelisation in all its many forms, including online outreach during lockdown and the practical acts of kindness as churches support local communities affected by Covid-19.
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 continue to pray alone, online 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 are hosting online Prayer 2020 events each month on social media. Join us as we pray that God opens hearts to the gospel.'
