THE AD2000 UNITED PRAYER TRACK
C. Peter Wagner
A major factor entering into my decision to accept the coordination
of the AD2000 United Prayer Track in 1991 was Luis Bush's
determination that prayer would be a central part, not just a
mandatory adjunct, to the movement he was helping to birth. This was
a radical departure from many other international
evangelistically-focused movements with which I had been associated
Furthermore, Luis is a risk-taker. When I accepted the position, he
agreed that I would incorporate into the Prayer Track the emerging
Spiritual Warfare Network of which I was International Coordinator.
Spiritual warfare was a very controversial issue in those days, but I
was convinced that the most relevant prayer for reaching the lost of
the 10/40 Window would be aggressive, targeted warfare prayer, and
Luis was willing to let me experiment with it in AD2000.
The result was that the global prayer movement, focused on saving the
lost, ended the decade on a level which could not even have been
imagined in 1990. The decade will be recorded in history as the most
innovative decade for prayer to date. Let me record this history by
listing the ten major innovations, and then the ten major prayer
The 10 Major Prayer Innovations of the 1990s
I had no trouble in compiling this list of the top ten innovations in
the prayer movement, but I had an extremely difficult time trying to
list them in order of importance. Consequently, I put the items in a
hat and drew them in random order:
- Strategic-level spiritual warfare. The idea of taking authority
over high-ranking principalities and powers assigned by Satan to keep
social networks of various kinds in spiritual darkness was the focus
of the Spiritual Warfare Network starting in 1990. Key authors
included Cindy Jacobs, Dick Eastman, and C. Peter Wagner.
- Identificational repentance. The body of Christ began to learn
that it is possible to heal the wounds of the past through
identificational repentance and thus to weaken strongholds that Satan
has built. The key author was John Dawson.
- Prayer evangelism. Prayer has ordinarily been an add-on to
evangelism, but now we know that prayer itself, when intelligently
strategized and focused, can be a direct force for winning people to
Christ. The key author was Ed Silvoso.
- Personal intercession for leaders. For pastors and other
Christian leaders, identifying and relating positively to personal
intercessors can mean the difference between success and failure in
ministry. Key authors included John Maxwell, Terry Teykl, and C.
- Two-way prayer. Prayer is not just speaking to God,
but also hearing directly from Him. Derivatives of this include
prophecy, the office of prophet, and prophetic intercession. Key
authors included Cindy Jacobs and Chuck Pierce.
- On-site praying. Prayer began to move out of the church and into
the community through praise marches, prayer expeditions, prayer
journeys, and prayerwalking. Key authors included Graham Kendrick,
Steve Hawthorne and C. Peter Wagner.
- City transformation. Through prayer, the kingdom of God can move
out of the church and penetrate all levels of society, thereby
transforming cities and other territories. Key authors included
George Otis, Jr., Ed Silvoso, John Dawson, and C. Peter Wagner.
- The AD2000 United Prayer Track. A vehicle for mobilizing prayer
for the lost at a level never before seen in church history. Key
authors included Luis Bush, Beverly Pegues, and Dick Eastman.
- Commitment to the land. Spiritual authority of pastors and other
leaders increases proportionately to their commitment to the
territory in which God has placed them. The key author was Bob
- Spiritual mapping. Spirit-guided research can help
target our prayers and produced informed, and thus more effective,
intercession. The key author was George Otis, Jr.
The 10 Major Prayer Milestones of the 1990s
These milestones, of course, were selected from my personal
perspective. Others might list them differently. They are in
chronological order, with the dates being the beginning dates, not
necessarily the end because many still continue.
- Praying Through Ramadan, 1992. This is also called "30-Day Muslim
Prayer Focus," the title of the annual prayer guide published for
- Praying Through the Window, 1993. Up to 40 million
intercessors were mobilized to pray for the same thing on the same day
through October on four different occasions: 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999.
- Gideon's Army, 1993. The first international meeting of the
Spiritual Warfare Network held at Kwang Lim Methodist Prayer Mountain
in Seoul, Korea. At this point, the SWN went public.
- The Day to Change the World, 1994. This was the first
international March for Jesus. Up to 12 million Christians took to
their streets in 168 nations of the world.
- Cardinal Points Prayer, 1994. The YWAM office in Australia
coordinated placing experienced intercessors at the furthest
geographical north, south, east, and west locations on all continents
on the same day to do prophetic intercession.
- The Reconciliation Walk, 1996-1999. Hundreds of Christians
retraced the paths of the First Crusade, engaged in intense
identificational repentance for the sins of our Christian forefathers
against Muslims and Jews.
- Operation Ice Castle, 1997. An experienced prayer team scaled Mt.
Everest in the highest level (both topographically and spiritually)
prophetic prayer initiative to date.
- Bethany People Profiles, 1997. The publication of 4-page,
prayer-oriented profiles of all the 1,739 significant unreached
people groups of the 10/40 Window.
- Operation Queen's Palace, 1997-1999. A major worldwide
mobilization of the armies of God to confront the Queen of Heaven,
culminating in Celebration Ephesus in Turkey.
- Dedication of the World Prayer Center, 1998. The most
sophisticated prayer switchboard for connecting international
intercessors to date.
