Global Day of prayer & fasting
Sunday, March 29
The World Evangelical Alliance has designated Sunday, March 29 as a Global Day of Prayer & Fasting amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to pray to God that the crisis will pass quickly. Below, you will find ideas and resources to help guide you through a whole day, lifting up your concerns, your community, your nation and the whole world before God at this time. If you cannot commit a full day, pick some activities and spend what time you have available to join us all in faith and hope, calling out to God for help.
Your Day of Prayer & Fasting
Download a Day of Prayer & Fasting Guidebook: Whether you are by yourself, with your family or with a group; have just minutes or hours during the day to pray, you will find something to inspire you. The guide contains 16 modules that can help you remain focused on God for the whole day or part of several days. Use them as you wish.
The best way to encourage one another is by sharing stories of faith and hope as we walk through troubles together. We aim to share some of those stories right here on this site, but we have also made it possible for you to share your God-stories with others in a special Facebook group that we have set up for this purpose. Follow this link, click +Join Group, answer three questions and we’ll add you to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/covid19globalprayer/
You can also update your Facebook profile picture with a WEA “I’m Praying” frame. To add it, go and “Update” your profile photo, choose “Add Frame” and search for “COVID19-Praying”. Click the frame, adjust your profile photo, choose your timeframe and click “Use as Profile Picture”. Voilà! Tell the world you’re praying in our time of trouble.

Pray With Others
There are many other Christian leaders and organisations calling for days of prayer. We affirm all of these and commend them to you. Below are a list of sites providing prayer information related to COVID-19 that we currently know of. We will update this list as information comes to hand. Be encouraged to “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
