A Chronicle of Renewal and Revival

Indonesia: The rise of a children’s prayer movement

In 2003 a children’s prayer movement was started in Indonesia. The network now exists in 72 regions and cities across the country.

Facilitators teach the children to pray in cooperation with local churches and Sunday schools. The children from all these groups are gathered in a central location to pray together for their city and nation. In the school holidays the children are trained. In June every year the prayer focus is on children at risk, which engages the children with real needs among their peers.

There are many testimonies of how children’s prayers have been answered powerfully by the Lord. Miracles of sicknesses healed and other wonderful transformations, such as the closing down of dark places of criminal activity. Also, children who engage in prayer have a more obedient character and love to read the Word of God. They also have a concern for the protection of the environment.

The goal of the movement is to have 200 children’s prayer networks with teams of facilitators by 2017, and praying children in every city and region of Indonesia.
