'Shockwave' for Persecuted Church

( [email protected] ) Feb 27, 2004 02:35 AM EST

On March 5, "Underground," the youth outreach of Open Doors International, will sponsor the third annual "Shockwave," a 24-hour global prayer initiative that will take place at prayer meetings and in Internet chat rooms worldwide.

Underground coordinator Jeff Shreve commented, "I know a lot of youth pastors, college groups, and others are wanting to find a way to get involved, but many times distance, geography, or whatever it may be, makes it a little bit harder. Shockwave eliminates all those things.” Shockwave can be done either as an individual or as a group. There are resources available for either. For those who are web wise and up for connecting globally you can use the Shockwave message board and chat area to see what other individuals and groups are up to.

Shockwave 2004 will start in New Zealand and work its way across the time zones, covering the world in prayer for the estimated 200 million members of the persecuted Church. For further information, visit http://www.odshockwave.org/
