Biblically, a global prayer and worship movement is one of the most significant signs of the end of the age. There are many, many Scriptures that prophesy and imply a global worship and prayer movement at the end of the age (Isaiah 19:20-22; 24:14-16, 23; 25:9; 26:1, 8-9; 27:2-5, 13; 30:18-19, 29, 32; 35:2; 42:10-13; 43:26; 51:11; 52:8; 62:6-7; Jeremiah 31:7; 51:8; Micah 5:3-4; Joel 2:12-17, 32; Zephaniah. 2:1-3; Psalm 96:1, 9, 13; 98:1-9; 102:15-22; 122:6; 149:6-9; Zechariah 8:20-23; 10:1; 12:10; 13:9; Matthew 21:13; 25:1-13; Luke 18:7-8; Revelation. 5:8; 6:9-11; 8:3-5; 9:13; 14:18; 16:7; 18:6; 22:17). In light of what the Scripture predicts, the sudden emergence of large-scale prayer and intercession across the earth, and the burning desire to do it among young people, must be recognized as a work of the Holy Spirit and a biblical part of missiology.
The expression of prayer and missions that are emerging on the earth are part of God’s plan to bring the church to fullness in the nations. We will continue to see creative new expression of prayer as a part of missions that create an opening for evangelism. At the same time, we must also adopt prayer with worship as a missiological objective because the Bible predicts that the global church is going to be characterized by extravagant worship and prayer. This means it must be a key part of our missiology.
