The African Prayer Council is a continental network of African prayer and mission organisations, ministries, missions and Churches. We are closely affiliated to International Prayer Connect.
International Prayer Connect is a coalition of more than 5,000 Christian prayer networks, organisations, Houses of Prayer, prayer leaders and praying people who share a common vision to mobilise and equip worldwide prayer for the blessing, healing and transformation of the nations.
We aim to do this through events such as the World Prayer Assembly and its on-going 'New Wave' movement, regional and issues based consultations and summits, partnership with other movements and member networks. and through face to face and online networking.
Our partner organisations and initiatives include: 4-14 Window, 24/7 Prayer Movement, Campus Crusade for Christ, Every Home for Christ, Global Alliance for Church Multiplication, Global Day of Prayer, Go 2020, IHOP, Transform World and many others.
Our approach is cross-generational. We believe in equipping and training young people as leaders of today. The IPC is an active partner and catalyzer of the Children in Prayer movement.
We are also working with the UPRISING (United Prayer Rising) youth movement that emerged from the Word Prayer Assembly in 2012 to focus the Body of Christ on the next generation and encourage youth in the unique mission God has for each of them.
The IPC is led by the International Prayer Council, composed of 24 leaders of regional and international prayer initiatives. It is financially supported mainly by personal donations and grants from the Transformation Prayer Foundation.
We are a voluntary organization and depend on donations, legacies and practical support to further the work and vision of connecting Christ's people worldwide in transformational prayer.
'Compelled by God to seek Christ's glory worldwide for the blessing, healing and transforming of the nations, the International Prayer Council exists as a coalition of prayer networkers and mobilizers working together to motivate, develop and equip national movements and local churches to fill all nations with prayer for the fulfilment of the Great Commandment and the completion of the Great Commission.'
'Exalting Jesus, catalysing united prayer across nations, denominations, movements, and generations for the fulfilment of the Great Commission.'
