As you know I have suggested that Christians and Jews pray Isaiah 11:9 at 10:18AM GMT during the two minutes that the Sun’s shadow is over the North Pole. Many Christians like to pray spontaneous prayers, while others appreciate the opportunity to pray a well-crafted thoughtfully considered prayer.

For those that prefer the latter, I have great news for you. Steve Hawthorne, who has written prayers for Global Day of Prayer, one of the largest Christian prayer events ever, spent several days working on a prayer around the theme of Isaiah 11:9 and we are providing it to YOU as an option to pray during the 2 minutes. This beautiful prayer centered around Isaiah 11, will take most people about 1 minutes and 50 seconds to pray, so it fits!

You can download the PDF file here. You may freely distribute this to your Christian friends.

      I have known Steve Hawthorne for almost 20 years, and I woke up last Friday morning with two thoughts – (1) I wonder if he would be willing to form that prayer, and (2) why didn’t I think of this before! I pray his prayers every year during the 40 days preceding Palm Sunday. The prayer book (or app) is called Seek God for the City, and is available at

    Thank you so much for the invitation to prayer. It excites me to think that God will be listening to all of us as with one accord we pray and praise Him simultaneously and attempt to touch His heart with our love. Did you see any of the pictures of the northern lights last night? It was like God was saying “PAY ATTENTION!!! I have something for you!!!!” He is amazing. Blessings.

      Well, said Kathy! This prayer idea only came up on Sunday March 8. (Yes I guess we’re hard of hearing!) So there’s hardly any time to organize for something like that. It is so impromptu, that whoever prays must be God-ordained. About the Northern Lights – I heard about it, but I only saw one brief photo, so if you have a good link for us, please put it up. I’ll then tweet it on the Root Source twitter account with hashtag #2MinofPrayer, which is what we’ve been using (um, for less than 1 day) Can anyone say impromptu! Blessings!

      Oh, and the live streaming link is:

        I just googled “Pictures of northern lights last night.” There are alot of sights.

        It was all over the internet….sorry for those that don’t know who created it…who is in charge. I am from upstate NY. And I know there will be people all over praying because how is that God directed me to this website? Because He is God and 2 Chron 16:9 “The LORD’s eyes keep on roaming throughout the earth, looking for those whose hearts completely belong to him, so that he may strongly support them.”

    I read Your heartfelt prayer that GOD will fill the earth with the GLORY of GOD. Check this verse 2 Corinthians 4:6, For GOD who commanded the Light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the Glory of GOD in the face of JESUS CHRIST. Amen.

      Nice. And I’ll add that for Steve Hawthorne who wrote the prayer, he explained to me that the first sentence of the final paragraph is an allusion to both Habakkuk 2:14 and 2 Corinthians 4:17, the latter of which is in the same chapter you just quoted. Blessings!

        Amen Bob, The dear souls need to see the glory of GOD fill the earth as the waters cover the Seas (Peoples). Glory to GOD in the Highest both now and in the future. The Glory of GOD is a revelation of His Character of Love as revealed in His Law & His SON. The seventh day Sabbath is HIS Seal of Authority for HE is the LORD (Name) Who Made (Title, Creator) The Heavens and the Earth (Territory) and all that in them is. Exodus 20: 8-11. In Christian Love, Keith.

    I’ll be there praying with others during this event. God will move among His people to wake them up and to pray. To repent of our sins and the sins of our nations. I may not know His Word as well as some of you out there, but I know that He moves people to action.

    Thanks for organizing this!

    My PAPPA has called me for the past 6 years now to call fourth those things that be not as though they were and to also get other Mighty Men and Women of God Prophets and Prophetess to come together. During this time of Decreeing he sent a message by way of a family member that he was pleased with me and called me Hephzibah. My prayer is that All of My Mighty Brother’s and Sister’s in Christ whom I have never met in the physical realm but have met in the Spirit will come together to STAND N AGREEMENT WITH ALMIGHTY GOD THAT HIS WILLSHALL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. When he put this in my heart and being ignited by the Elijah List over the years, I knew that he also put this in the hearts of other Mighty Men and Women of GOD all across the NATIONS. AMEN

    Psalm 122:6 & Isaiah 62:6-7

    Psalm 98 King James Version (KJV)

    98 O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

    2 The Lord hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

    3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

    4 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

    5 Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

    6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.

    7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

    8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

    9 Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

    I’m sure somebody there in Jerusalem will be able to upload a nice video of the event with sound also. We will publish a link here and on twitter @RootsourceIL when we get it. Blessings to all!
