What If...

It is said that it required about 100,000 people to achieve gigantic and historic accomplishments like building the pyramids in Ancient Egypt, constructing the Panama Canal, and landing the first man on the moon.

What if 100,000 followers of Jesus from around the world joined together and offered unified, fervent prayers to the Lord of heavens for Ethiopia?

The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. (James 5:16b-18)

If a single man's prayer stopped rain for three and a half years and then brought restoration to the land, would the unified prayers of 100,000 men and women restore an entire nation of 90 million people?

The deepest desires of the Ethiopian body of Christ are the same:

  1. To raise and mobilize Ethiopian believers for the worldwide fulfillment of the Great Commission
  2. To see the restoration and well-being of their country
One hundred thousand prayers. One voice for the healing of Ethiopia!
