FINISH Commitment

General Overseer of the Church of God, Tim Hill has set forth his vision for the FINISH Commitment, a “Global Church Focus on the Great Commission.” Prayer Ministries has adopted these commitments and goals based on the ‘I’ in FINISH which stands for INTERCEDE, making prayer and worship the highest privilege and greatest responsibility of every believer.

“Whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive” (Matthew 21:22 KJV).

We are committed to:

  • Commit globally to 6,000,000 hours of prayer annually for the FINISH Commitment.
  • Recruit globally 1,000,000 prayer partners, providing prayer 24/7.
  • Implement an intentional FINISH Prayer/Fasting Initiative annually in each local church, state, region, and area of the world.

Join these prayer connection calls (Call-in number: 641-715-3580; Access Code: 466086):

  • Saturday Night Fire Call – Each Saturday – 9:00 PM EST
  • Pray for Unreached Peoples – First Wednesday of each month – 12:30 PM EST

As part of the plan to fulfill the goals, the Prayer Ministries Office charges each church to pray 5 minutes once a month for a Global Harvest.

Use the HEARTS Prayer:

H – Hearts

  • Pray for receptive and repentant Hearts (see Luke 8:5-15).
  • God to touch the heart!


  • Pray for spiritual Eyes and Ears to be opened to the truth of Christ (see Matt. 13:15; 2 Cor. 4:3-4)
  • God to cause them to see and hear!


  • Pray for them to become Aware of God, of their need for him, of their sin.
  • Pray that they will acknowledge their need for Christ as Savior and Lord (see John 16:8).


  • Pray for grace to repent – to cry out to God.
  • For their redemption, the claim on their lives by the blood and death of the lamb to be realized.
  • For them to be released from sin’s power, from its grip, and freed to follow Christ. (see 2 Cor. 10:3-4; 2 Tim. 2:25-26)


  • Pray for a Transformed life (see Rom. 12:1-2).
    Pray that they would be teachable.


  • Pray for God to Save, Sanctify and Send them into His harvest field (see Matt 9:35-38).

21-Days of Prayer and Fasting

Across the nation, thousands of churches urge their members to begin the New Year by praying. The goal of that revival in you is for God’s glory to be revealed to a watching world that needs to know Him. When large numbers or high percentages of people are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ, spiritual awakening is the result. Communities change. Cities change. And yes, nations can change. Spiritual awakening is what we need in our nation, but revival of God’s people is a spiritual prerequisite.

The Awaken, 21-Day Prayer Guide is a guide to enrich your participation in fasting and prayer for a revival of God’s presence and work in your own life and church as the start to your year.

Each day in this prayer guide, there are Scriptures designed to fix your focus on God and what He has to say to us through His Word – thoughts that will challenge or encourage. May God increase your own hunger for His presence and power to such a degree that you will make every adjustment required to experience revival and awakening. I’m praying that God will increase your faith to believe Him for all He wants to do where you are. Don’t focus attention on how bad things may be around you. Get your eyes fixed on Jesus and what He can do. He is our Hope.

There are daily suggestions for prayer. Prayer is a relationship with the Creator of the universe. Jesus wants you to spend time getting to know Him and His purposes and His ways as you pray. He wants to speak to you about your life and your part in His plan for world redemption. You will notice that each day you are being asked to talk to the Lord about what you should do to apply what you are hearing from Him. Do not be a hearer only; become an obedient ‘doer’ of the word.

Fasting may be a new discipline for you. If so, do some research or ask someone about fasting. That may include denying yourself food, or it could include a fast from television or media for a season. Fasting heightens your hunger for God and your focus on Him, but it also provides you with additional time to pray. Fasting and prayer go together – as does giving. There are some helpful guides in the appendix of this prayer guide.

Strategic Prayer Training

Administrative Bishops, State Prayer Leaders and Teams, Key Pastors and Leaders who might help with some aspect of the prayer process are invited to attend AGREE 19, a revival and prayer convocation, in Cleveland, TN, Monday, January 7-Thursday, January 10, 2019.

We will meet jointly with the Unreached People Group Coalition.

I want to identify a prayer leader-trainer for every nation, whose goal would be to mobilize prayer in every congregation in that nation. In addition, I want to identify regional mobilizer-trainers for each of the 21 global regions. This is where you could play a critical role. I need peers to these 21 global regional trainers, mentors and peer-trainer mobilizers to these regions and nations, who would, perhaps like you, be willing to travel abroad, raising up praying-missional congregations with a focus on the lost around them, including UPGs.

Each evening we will gather at the Church of God General headquarters, in the Communication Center, for the live-broadcast of the global prayer service with Dr. Hill, members of the Executive Committee and church leaders. In 2018, the theme was prayer. In 2019, the theme will be ‘care’ without dismissing prayer. In 2020, the theme will be ‘share’ with prayer and care in the background. We are on a mission, to encourage our churches to be ‘houses of prayer,’ that demonstrate compassion to the lost and look for opportunities to share Christ.

We have relaunched The Praying Church Movement. This is our attempt to get each congregation to be intentional in their prayer effort, which begins with naming a prayer learning team. Currently, we have 600 churches across the nation that are being intentional about congregational prayer leadership.

If we assume prayer, like assuming the fire on the altar, it will die. If we don’t direct it, shape its theology, it will degenerate to self-interested prayer – prayer requests. We must recover prayer that is at its heart worship, and at its edge mission.

We want to come out of our January meeting firing on all cylinders and we especially want to raise the level of intercessory prayer engagement. We want to vision our future. We cannot afford, in these last days, to allow our prayer effort to become stale and rote. Let’s take Jesus seriously. He wants the church to be a ‘house of prayer for the nations.’ I think he is calling us to turn some tables over in the temple!

Registration fee received on-site:

  • $35 for School of Prayer Training only (Tuesday morning)
  • $35 for Strategic Prayer Training (Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday and Thursday morning)
  • $50 for both events (all 3 days)

Online registration is currently closed. You can still attend the meeting via on-site registration. Thank you. Call us with any questions 855-842-5483.

Call in number: 641-715-35800

Access Code: 466086

General Overseer, Dr. Tim Hill is committed to prayer as a pillar of the Church of God denomination. As part of the FINISH challenge the Church of God declares to:

  • Commit to 6 million hours of prayer for the FINISH Commitment globally.
  • Recruit 1,000,000 prayer partners, providing prayer globally 24/7.
  • Implement an intentional Finish Prayer/Fasting Initiative annually in each state/region/ area of the world.

Getting Started

Getting Started with a Prayer Ministry

  1. DO IT– Pray. Don’t talk about it. Do it. Pray before you plan. Pray before you do anything else. Above all, let prayer lead the way in developing a prayer ministry. Tarry in prayer. The flesh will want to plan it into being. The Spirit will want to prayer it into being. Pray for prayer – a spirit of intercession. Pray for pray-ers – an army of prayer warriors. Pray for wisdom and direction in prayer. Pray for God to identify prayer leaders. Pray for a passion for the lost. Pray for God’s unique design for the prayer ministry of your church.
  2. ENVISION IT– Pray aloud, “By faith, I see …” Have the participants fill in the blanks. Let prayer, bathed in faith, quicken your hearts with the possibilities for prayer ministry. Don’ hurry. Wait in prayer.
  3. RECORD IT– Have someone record the ideas. “By faith, I see … us prayer walking the city … (another) … with healing teams … praying regularly for the mayor.” Some things envisioned in prayer may be immediately forthcoming. Some may only unfold after years of faithful persistence. A record might encourage late-comers that God had a huge mission in mind from the beginning.
  4. TALK IT UP – Keep sharing ideas for prayer. Enlarge the circle. As more people are exposed to the things stirring in the hearts of a few, the Lord will call others into the process. And the vision will become clear.
  5. PRIORITIZE IT– Begin to separate the ideas about which you have prayed and talked into categories – Do immediately, Do as soon as possible, Do later, Wait on the Lord. Develop an action plan. Keep committing it to prayer. Keep it fluid.
  6. STEWARD IT – By now, a core group has emerged who want to see a formal prayer ministry become a reality. Some will have a passion for prayer, but not be gifted as an organizer. Ideally, you want an intercessor who is also gift leader with evidenced maturity to serve as your team leader. Team is a key word. This is not a one-person job. A prayer ministry demands a team. Designate the team members. Keep the roles loosely defined in the discovery and exploratory phases.
  7. WORK IT – Transform the vision, with its priority categories, into action steps. Don’t stop praying. Pray and plan. Work and pray! Keep enlarging the circle of people meeting to move the prayer process forward.
  8. GROW IT– With the core vision given the group in prayer, now expose yourself to all kinds of ideas. Don’t copy other prayer ministries, but do learn from them. Assign each of your team members a different book to read on prayer ministries – not just prayer. Come together. Have them share insights.
  9. EVALUATE IT– In light of what you are learning, how balanced is your plan. How likely is it that you can accomplish all your goals in the time-line you might have set? Have other prayer ministry leaders from other churches assess your plan. Get pastoral approval. Make sure your team is on board.
  10. EXECUTE IT– Even as you put your plan in action, keep it flexible. You learn by doing. As you conduct prayer events, you will see gaps in prayer theology and practice. Teach and train into those gaps. Then test the learning by another doing event. Build slowly – teach and execute; train and deploy. Set reasonable goals. Make them measurable. Expect resistance. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
