Virtual Prayer Summit

Vision and Purpose
We desire to create dialogue and understanding of the immediate critical issues that divide America and the Church today. Particular focus regarding America’s internal racial divide and the subsequent African/African-American breech both still needing repair from the aftereffects of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade to this day.
America is experiencing a great divide that neither the political nor governmental realms can resolve without Jesus Christ. Only the Kingdom of God and the power of the Holy Spirit can break down these walls and bring restoration to America, Africa and the nations of the world. It is with this initiative, that Africa Bless America Worldwide Prayer Summit obtains its mandate:
Africa and the Nations Praying for America’s Redemption, Repentance, Restoration, Reconciliation, Revival.
The mandate for Africa to stand in the gap and bless America is an apostolic mission birthed by God’s concern for America’s spiritual, physical, and moral redemption. God’s passion to redeem man in general was engraved in stone when the Lord Jesus emptied Himself of His deity, made Himself of no reputation, took on the form of a bondservant, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross (Phil. 2:5-8). God’s passion for man’s redemption triggered a vision that called on the Apostle Paul to “ … come over to Macedonia and help us” (Acts 16:9).
Early last year, a “Macedonian” call was precipitated on Africa to pray and bless America. At the time, there was no COVID-19, no racial unrest, and no economic chaos. God however, knew the critical challenges that America would face and in effect called on Africa to intercede. All we heard was “Africa Bless America” (ABA) and the ensuing concern: “If America falls, the rest of the world will fall with her.”
When we heard this, we were bullish and determined not to be disobedient to this heavenly call. As a result, we did not waste time to present our mandate to Dr. Jose Pascua, president of “The Joshua Generation” (TJG). Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, Dr. Pascua on his part immediately rallied thousands of young people in the TJG African network to start praying and interceding for America. Later on, more nations in the TJG network heard of ABA and expressed interest to join and intercede for America. As a result, a new worldwide move (more than 200 nations) is now praying and interceding on behalf of America. Africa Bless America Worldwide Prayer Summit” is a culmination of this worldwide effort of the Church to intercede for America.
It was our desire to conclude this divine mandate with a three-day-prayer summit from Sept. 17-19, 2020. Initially, we planned to bring together two delegates from every nation within the TJG network. But then COVID-19 happened, George Floyd happened, and the resulting economic and racial unrest happened! These demonic events confirmed our mandate and gave us more compelling reasons and the urgency to step up and obey the divine command to intercede for America. Even with a limited representation (because of COVID), the summit will be a worldwide travail led by Africa on behalf of America. The ABA Worldwide Prayer Summit is therefore a multinational collaboration armed with and apostolic mandate to appeal to God on behalf of America virtually and physically in Washington, DC. This appeal is four-fold: repentance, redemption, reconciliation, and restoration of America to her godly stature as “one nation under God.” It is our hope (God willing), that this spiritual exercise will ignite a revival in America.
