About Us

Global Prayer Watch was found on 1 September, 2000 as a 24/7 House of Prayer according to Isaiah 62:6-7. Our desire is to see the Body of Christ in Cape Town and all nations unite in continuous prayer and worship in every city and local congregation.

Beginning 2004 we knew of 20 prayer watches throughout South Africa. Today there are more than 6000 prayer watches that have been planted over the last six years.


To prepare the way for the Lord, through 24 hour worship and intercession, to bring revival, renewal and restoration into the continent of Africa.


  • To establish a sustainable 24 Hour House of Prayer in Cape Town, South Africa.
  • To help with the planting of 24/7 Prayer Watches all over Africa and the Middle- East.
  • To link with and actively supporting the local prayer initiatives in Cape Town.

Networking Internationally

The Global Prayer Watch links with an international movement where 24 Hour Prayer Watches are being established in every country in the world.

The Global Prayer Watch is an initiative of Jericho Walls International Prayer Network (www.jwipn.com) which is directly linked to other international prayer networks.

Prayer Focus

Although we have a biblical mandate to pray for all the nations, there will be a special focus on the nations of Africa and the Middle- East with the biblical mandate given to us in Jeremiah 1:10, Isaiah 56:7 and Matthew 21:13. Prayer groups and individuals from every tongue, tribe and nation are invited to come and join in prayer for the nations.

The Challenge!

Let us take hands in seeking the Lordís face to turn the tide in our nation! Morally, spiritually, socially and economically we face severe challenges. Worldwide, billions are lost and suffering under oppression, persecution and economic crises. Extraordinary times necessitate extraordinary measures. Will you take up the challenge of continuous, prevailing and travailing prayer for the nations of the world?
