Pray With Us

Prayer Month – January 2021

For more than 30 years, World Horizons has dedicated the whole of January to prayer. Our founder, Roland Evans, used to say, ‘We simply believe that prayer changes things.’ During our times of corporate prayer, we have often seen God move in many miraculous ways as he speaks into situations and brings answers, while also challenging and blessing us beyond measure.

It has been our desire, for many years, to open World Horizons UK Prayer Month to all those people, both in the UK and in other countries, who partner with us and are passionate about prayer.

The Covid pandemic has forced us to be creative as we work from home, so in January 2021, our Prayer Month will be online.  We would like to invite you to join us from 9.30 to 11.00 am every Friday morning, starting on January 8th as we gather together in God’s presence, to seek his face on behalf of people and places which have not yet been blessed with the good news of the gospel.

You will also hear news from our workers in many diverse nations, learn about their ministries and pray for them as well as for the locals and their country.

This is your opportunity to engage in an amazing prayer journey with us. Consider encouraging your church, Christian Union and/or house group to join in with you!

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the Online Open Day. Send us an email.

Please complete the registration form below to join us online in January. We will then be in touch with everything you need to know in order to take part.


Prayer is at the heart of all that we do. We desire to listen to God and commit time and energy to prayer and worship, the core foundations of our ministry. Our prayer days, prayer months and other focused times of prayer and worship reflect this priority. We come together to pray for the seemingly impossible, for new works to be established and the least reached to meet Christ. Around the world, over 6,500 people groups have still to hear the Gospel message. We want to partner with the UK church in sharing the Good News with those who’ve never heard it before – both locally and globally. Our prayer is that we will see more people serving with us in both short and long-term mission amongst the least reached.

We have many years’ experience of speaking at churches on a variety of different topics related to world mission and running creative prayer sessions. See our Church Visits page for further information.

Prophetic Prayer

Prayer builds an understanding of God’s heart and mind. We want this understanding to direct the decisions we take. Our desire is to work in the truth and direction He reveals, not in human wisdom.

We long to see the power of the Holy Spirit moving in the places where we work. Our hope is that as we go and pray together with local believers, they will be released into their own creative forms of prayer and worship.

We believe that God has called us to establish praying and worshipping communities in specific areas within the 10/40 window. We see this developing with both larger bases and small groups meeting to pray as part of their ministry. Our vision is that people are discipled, communities transformed and God’s Kingdom come in tangible ways.

  • Isaiah 19:23 Highway – We believe that there is still time and opportunity for Egypt, Israel and Assyria to come to have a saving faith in Jesus Christ. He is the only way for healing and unity amongst these nations. We desire to support these people groups as they become the ‘blessing on the earth’ that Isaiah prophesied about.
  • North Indian peoples – Northern India is considered by many to be the last major challenge in world mission. In this part of the world over 500 million people have yet to hear the Gospel. Our South Asia team is specifically praying for the many different Muslim people groups of this region to have a life-changing encounter with Christ.
  • Along the Silk Road – The Silk Road is a historical trade route from China to the Middle East through Central Asia. Along this route we are running mission trips, as well as establishing long-term ministries.
  • Ringing the Mediterranean – As part of a network with other partners, our vision is to see missional houses of prayer in all the nations surrounding the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
  • Surrounding the Sahara – For many years we have had workers and close partners ministering, praying and worshipping in the countries that surround the Sahara

Pioneering Prayer

Groups have travelled to pray, worship and prophesy alongside national believers, in desert and mountain regions where there has been little or no Christian witness. God often calls us to go where others are not going, and as we’ve stepped out, new opportunities to witness have come to fruition in those places. In some of these least reached areas, pioneer workers have been able to share their faith sensitively with the local people and establish ministry initiatives. We long to see God move further in power, and for His kingdom purposes to come to these regions.

Pastoral Prayer

We have a dedicated team of member care workers supporting our colleagues who are living, working and ministering in some of the most spiritually challenging places in the world. An essential part of our ongoing care and commitment to them is to pray regularly for their particular needs, as well as to inspire and encourage others to do the same.
