INTERNATIONAL ADVENTIST PRAYER CONVENTION 2017
September 13-17, 2017
In this momentous time, we all recognize our need for spiritual awakening. Our prayer members from the United States, Japan and Korea had the third prayer gathering named Adventist Prayer Convention 2017, sponsored by the Korean Union Conference, Japan Union Conference, & the Korean Church Association of North America.
It was held in Mount Hermon, California, from September 13 through 17, 2017. Many prayer members from Japan, Korea and other parts of the world came to Mt. Hermon to attend the prayer convention.
After we witnessed the enormous blessings at the first prayer convention in Korea in 2012 and the second prayer convention in Japan in 2013, we again witnessed that God worked in each of the attendees in the convention. Now we strongly desire and pray to expand the movement in the United States with God’s blessing.
INTERNATIONAL ADVENTIST PRAYER CONVENTION 2017 was a four day prayer conference with Adventists from the United States, Korea, Japan and other parts of the world. This grassroots prayer movement has been organized through the collaboration of lay-people, local church pastors, and church institutions in an effort to gather, study, and pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

We earnestly long for the Second Coming of the Lord. Since the completion of the time prophecies, people have been waiting for the foretold event for ages. However, today, from land to the sea and to the sky, the signs of the Second Advent are clearer than ever. The angels are now letting go of “the four winds of the earth (Rev. 7:1)” in order to bring an end to times of pain and suffering. The time, which shall end the tragedy of witnessing hundreds of thousands of people dying without hope of an everlasting future, is fast approaching. In this time and age, keeping in mind how “joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents (Luke 15:7)," we wish to help facilitate a link between heaven and people, awakening them with the entrusted truth. Those who are in earnest hope for the power from heaven and wish to serve as passageways to heaven will gather together, praying for the work of the Holy Spirit. Holding tight onto the promise (Luke 11:13), we will gather to ask earnestly. We will gather to share the visions of our ministry of faith with one another, confirming yet again that we, as the people of heaven, do not belong here in this world. We will declare in one voice that we are moving forward according to the prophecy of God, following the light given to us, although our journey may be on a dark, narrow and rough road. We believe, then, that our God will bestow the Holy Spirit on us. But even if the coming of the burning Spirit is delayed, “even if He does not (Dan. 3:18)," the people of heaven from all around the globe will come together as “we are in joy in God our Savior (Hab. 3:18)” and unite efforts to sharpen one another “as iron sharpens iron (Prov. 27:17)," to glorify our God. We truly desire to hasten the Second Coming of the Lord.
