About The Invitation

IMG_4137YWAM has always been committed to prayer and seeking God. We do this as individuals, as ministry locations, as countries and at many other levels. Many of YWAM’s leaders believe that now is the time for YWAM everywhere to come together in prayer in an even more unified manner.

At a meeting in 2014, several hundred YWAM leaders had a sense that God was inviting YWAM into His presence in a new way. Now YWAM’s leaders extend that invitation to the whole mission and to the friends of YWAM as well. They invite us all to gather before God together once a month.

The prayer day is called The Invitation. Said Darlene Cunningham, one of YWAM’s founders, “God is inviting us into His presence to help carry and nurture His dreams.”


The second Thursday of each month, or on whatever day close to that works better for your community.


On one month the prayer will focus on local concerns, the next month for areas where YWAM does not yet have a presence, and the next month for global issues.
