Billion Souls 2013

A Synopsis of Last Leaders’ Teleconference

A teleconference to close the Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call took place on 18 September 7am to 8:15am Australian EST.  The eleven participants from USA, Australia and New Zealand shared reports and gave thanks to God for the great things he has done. Here are some highlights:

  • Mass salvations were reported in different parts of the world.
  • Numerous prayer initiatives are springing up in many places e.g. Washington DC.
  • The worldwide call by Pope Francis to pray and fast on 7 September for peace in Syria, and other conflict situations, certainly saw a “multiplication of prayer across the world”.  Praise God for the outcome thus far.
  • A personal ‘repentance awakening’ was experienced by many who took part.
  • The need for the Church to wake up and pray, fast and repent as never before was highlighted throughout the daily devotions over the 40 Days.
  • Many found the International Day of Repentance on Yom Kippur a meaningful culmination of the 40 Days.  It was an opportunity to appreciate the roots of our faith and to know the joy and rest that follows repentance.
  • Figures from the Facebook campaign showed over 7 million unique ‘reaches’ in many different countries around the world. The countries with the highest ‘likes’ of the 11,873 were Indonesia, Egypt, India and Australia. With the goal of reaching children and youth we were glad to see over 80% of ‘likes’ were 13 to 24 years old and 65% were male.  Overall, we felt the Facebook campaign was extremely cost effective and many lessons were learnt for the future.
  • Special thanks to God was made for the astounding results of the federal election in Australia which took place on 7 September.  Australia now has a Prime Minister who is staunchly pro-family and pro-life.  Not only that, the godless Greens Party was greatly depleted and lost the balance of power, surprising many experts in politics.

It was agreed that there has been a marvellous oneness amongst the different ministries from around the world who have participated in the Billions Souls Revival Prayer Call.  Continue to pray that God will use the Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call as a catalyst in a third Great Awakening.  It was agreed to continue to wait on the Lord for the next step in His divine strategy.

  1. Heavenly Father, forgive me where I have been so blind to trifle with and presume upon and despise and underestimate the wealth of your kindness and forbearance and longsuffering patience with me; where I have been unmindful or ignorant of the fact that God’s kindness is intended to lead me to repent, to change my mind and inner man to accept God’s will.[ Rom 2:4 amp] Search me thoroughly, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.[ Ps 139:23-24 amp]

  2. 2 Timothy 2:24-26
    And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

  3. Lord: Forgive me for the many years of apathy since 1973 Roe v. Wade that I chose to look the other way while millions of babies were being slaughtered. Forgive me for arrogance that I assumed as long as I was not participating in a sin, that I had no obligation to protest this evil. Forgive me for assuming that if I “tolerated” other people’s “choices” that evil would not eventually make a full scale assault on our culture and threaten my children and other children’s futures. Help all of us who have a healthy fear of You to remember that we will have to face you sometime in the near future and explain our “choices.” Help us all to have a healthy fear of You in accordance with this scripture:
    I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him.
    ~Luke 12: 4&5

  4. I just wanted you to know that we (my husband, self and praying friends) WILL continue to PRAY with you on the TOPICS which are so vital to this Great Southland of the Holy Spirit especially for the special bond of marriage to ALWAYS remain between a MAN and a WOMAN, as our GOD and HIS word ordains. We praise our ever loving GOD for the result of the Election too.
    Be encouraged – your praying supporters will continue to PRAY.

  5. Dear Phillip , well done on your (and many other people’s prayers to get Kevin Rudd voted out of parliament for having supported same-sex ‘marriage’. I agree at the age of 36 y-o that it’s completely wrong. Even though at 36 I don’t have a wife, partner or girlfriend myself I’m very glad that with the normal heterosexual attraction there is some normality in this world still. I voted for Tony Abbott myself mainly for this reason. And even being without a special woman in my life at the moment it touches a real chord in me when I see a man and woman holding hands together. And I personally congratulate you and the many people who prayed. Well done. However even though what Kevin Rudd did and said was wrong (I agree with that comment you made that it was wrong) but the fact that it was labelled as ‘The Judas Kiss’ is a bit far-fetched. Kevin Rudd’s views were wrong no two ways about it. But we can’t start judging other people or preaching at them! But well done on standing up for what’s right!

  6. Lord, forgive me for my prayerlessness. Too often I put doing your work ahead of praying. Please forgive me and do a new thing in me from this day on. I dedicate myself to prayer.
    Amen.

  7. Dear Marilyn,
    Thankyou for your e-mail and the work that you and the team are doing for this Billion Souls Global prayer watch. For so long I have had a vision of a blanket of prayer covering our nation, and now we are able to join our little blanket to the huge blanket of prayer across the world.

    Our message to teachers today, is an extract taken from a little book, by Chaim Bentorah, about what breaks the heart of our Saviour, and in light of our prayers for the lost, it may just help us focus on the fact that it isn’t just about a soul saved for eternity, but it’s because lost souls break our Savior’s heart.

    ‘In silence my heart saw what my eyes could not see, my heart what my ears could not hear and my heart spoke what my lips could not speak.
    In silence I was able to enter a special room in God’s heart, a quiet room, a weeping room.
    In this room I found Jesus holding a heart in His hands, a heart which had been broken.
    He was weeping over that broken heart.
    He was feeling the heart’s hurt and loneliness. He wept over that wounded heart longing so much to heal the wound that tore it apart, but the heart’s owner would not seek His comfort.
    I saw Him pick up a heart that was cold and barren and watched His teardrops just roll off that heart. I could sense Him wishing that each tear would somehow penetrate that heart, but the heart’s owner would not open it to Him to allow His tears to enter and soften his heart.
    As He picked up another broken heart I reached out to Him and touched His nail-pierced hand and instantly I felt His sorrow and pain, the anguish felt by the heart’s owner and I too wept.
    It was in this quiet, weeping room that I saw my own heart’s desire – it was only to seek and search for these hearts’ owners and let them know that there is a Saviour weeping for them, longing to enter their wounded heart to allow His tears, His nailed pierced hands to heal those wounds.’

    Ecclesiastes 4:6 “Better is a handful of quietness than both hands filled with labor and striving after the wind.”

    ‘In quietness we produce more than all our labors could produce in terms of our relationship with God.
    In fact these labors run the danger of becoming a consuming passion which is like chasing the wind, it will only pass.
    What is accomplished in quietness is eternal and the product of our quietness is for eternity.’

    • That is precious Coleen. Thank you. Do you know the song “Hosanna” which has the line “break my heart with what breaks yours”? A great song.

  8. Dear Zachary,

    Thankyou for your comment.
    Amen and Amen.
    This is a divine appointment with the Most High.
    Shalom.

    • Thank you Colleen and all the Christian teachers in Africa who are joining us in praying, fasting and repenting through these 40 days. May God pour out His Spirit on Africa. Colleen sent this email at the beginning of Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call:

      I am part of a prayer support ministry for education – teachers and schools.

      We operate from East London, South Africa, although we have teachers on our database, who are teaching in countries
      throughout regions of Africa.

      We are on Day 107 of a prayer vigil for education, where we have been journeying in prayer with educators to rebuild
      the spiritual walls of their schools and communities, just as Ezra and Nehemiah rebuilt the walls around the temple
      and city.

      As we journey, we would like to focus in on your 40 day journey from the 6th August, as so many of the children in our
      classrooms form part of the billion souls who need Christ.

      Can we register as a group for this?

      Our website is under construction as it’s being revamped, but our old website is accessible at http://www.teachersinc.org.za

      Our e-mail address is teachersinc@iafrica.com.

      Colleen

      Take a look at their website and contact them if you would like to see a similar ministry in your country.

  9. I would like to add that teachers across many countries in Africa, are united in prayer during these 40 days, and are trusting God for an outpouring of His Holy Spirit for a revival in our schools. Thankyou for this initiative and as we come before Him with One voice, and One heart, in repentance, and praise, it commands His blessing. Psalm 133

    1 How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
    2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard,
    running down on Aaron’s beard,
    down on the collar of his robe.
    3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion.
    For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

    • Thank you Colleen. May God bless all the teachers of Africa, revive those who know him and draw many non-believers to himself.

    • August 6 was also the beginning of Rosh Chodesh and the New Moon. Moses ascends Mt. Sinai for the second time, and 40 days of repentance begin. Until Moses descends to give over the second set of tablets to the nation of Israel, on the 40th day, on Yom Kippur. A better time could not have been picked for the faithful of the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, of the Messiah Yeshua, the true High Priest and King, to cry out to the Lord our God. May the Father bless all of you, Amen.

      • Thank you Zachary for letting us know. God is the one who has put all this together! He is wanting His people everywhere to come before him according to 2 Chronicles 7:14!

  10. Every knee shalt bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord……….this is the time of the revelation….get involved in the outpouring of the Spirit…….

  11. Just noting that the Lord has called me to take part in this fast and prayer call. Looking forward to see what He will do. Praise Him!

    • Thanks John. We are trusting God that a million will make that commitment. Pray for our Facebook campaign that we will have Divine favour and our Prayer Call might go viral around the world. A million praying for a billion souls! Have you registered for the daily devotions by blogs?

  12. Yes this is the time and hour body of Christ all over the work has to join this time of fasting and prayer, for nothing else can change this world, Only when we all go to our knees, and pray, and fasting.
    Its the last weapon Christians can use and for sure we will win in Jesus Name, count me in Jesus Name.
    Kenya East Africa.

    • Thank you Bishop Jonah. You will see in our Prayer Guide that the life of Jonah is referred to several times including Day 1 devotions for the 6 Aug. A powerful message to the Church to awake at such a time as this! Yes there is a sense of urgency and anticipation that God is stirring His people to pray. Which country and church do you belong to? How did you hear about the prayer call? Spread the call far and wide!

      • I’m from Kenya East Africa, My Ministries is- CHRISTIAN OUTREACH MINISTRIES WORLD-WIDE.
        I Got it from Elijah List Ministries. Thank you. Prayer changes things in Jesus Name. Bishop Jonah Bedan.

  13. What a great moment in history that for the next 40 days there will be a communication line between the throne of Heaven itself and his creation on Earth… Let us in one single VOICE be calling out if you do not have the words let them be this ….
    OUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN HOLY IS YOUR NAME .
    YOUR KINGDOM COME ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
    GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD
    AND FORGIVE US OUR TRANSGRESSIONS / SINS
    AS WE FORGIVE AND FORGET THOSE WHO HAVE TRANSGRESS AGAINST US.
    LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATIONS BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL
    AND THE EVIL ONE.
    FOR YOURS IS THE HONOR THE POWER THE GLORY FOREVER AND EVER AMEN!

    • Thank you Felix for this encouragement to pray. Imagine if every Christian around the world prayed at noon daily the line “Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven” – what united power there would be! Saints in the Stadium http://www.ndopw.com are actually encouraging everyone in UK to do that. Let’s make it the world!

  14. I am an intercessor in Victoria, Texas, USA. I will share with our group of intercessors tomorrow morning. Expecting the Holy Spirit to move in a greater measure.

    • Thank you Audrey. We need the intercessors covering this whole initiative. God bless you all. Add anything that the intercessors want to communicate through this website.

  15. Just wanted to send my support and encouragement so many people have the heart to believe for the billion to come to Christ Jesus. As prayer intercessor in our church I am going to believe many will come and be part of this prayer call.
    Blessings Julie

  16. I , on behalf of the church I am overseeing are committing to support your prayer effort.
    Pastor Fernandes F. Nazario.O

  17. Praise the Lord for this movement of prayer and for the faithful brothers and sisters who are involved. I will be be rallying my church fellowship to get involved. How exciting it is to be a part of such an amazing move for the salvation of 1 billion people. Thank you Jesus for the warfare that is so required against abortion, death and the immorality that is gripping God’s beautiful creation.

  18. I read about this call to prayer in the afa Journal. I get so pumped up when I hear about others who have this same burden to seek God’s face! Thank you so much for following in faith and obedience.

    • We loved your devotion but in end had to cull 10. We will post it on the website when we get a chance and probably send it out as a blog or through Facebook if that’s OK. Can you help us spread the call through your State or through Facebook?

  19. Lord I thank you for the call to pray for revival for lost souls for end to abortion and for multiplication of prayer and worship in this nation and across the world
