Lenten Prayer with CMS Africa

Here's an invitation to join a global prayer initiative over Lent. Because we Kiwis live on the opposite side of the globe , we are able to 'fill the holes' in this prayer chain - when it's midnight in Africa, it's midday here.

Warm Calvary greetings from CMS-Africa!

We are pleased to invite you to take part in the Lent Prayerthon this year under the theme of Matthew 6:36-38. We are trusting God for people from across the globe to sign up for prayer to cover the complete 24 hours during each of the 40 days of Lent from 18 February to 2 April 2015.

This invitation is for each person to choose a time and commit to pray for 15 minutes every day over the 40-day Lent season.

At this time in the history of the Church, more than ever, we see a world in turmoil. The solution to this is workers who will go into this ready harvest to demonstrate and proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God. Prayer is the foundation of all missions. Over this Lent period, we are asking the Lord of the harvest to send out workers.

You can sign up on the CMS-Africa website ( or send an e-mail to titled Lent Prayers, indicating your selected time of prayer.  Thereafter, you will receive an e-mail from CMS-Africa which will include the Lent Prayer Guide to fuel your prayer time.

We invite you to consider having your entire network of friends in missions work sign up for this Lent Prayerthon that is part of the CMS-Africa global footprints campaign.  More details on the Campaign’s progress are available upon request.
