AMBARICHO PRAYER MOUNTAIN

This is about an incredible prayer movement which was started on the 9,900 ft Mount Ambaricho, the tallest in southern Ethiopia. The renouned witch doctor, Abba Sarecho, whose family was worshipped there for over 700 years, now became a Christian. Tens of thousands of people were gathering every year to worship the witch doctor, but the 22nd  of the Abba Sarecho dynasty became the follower of Jesus Christ as a result of the power of the Gospel and united prayer of Christians. The very place where he was worshipped now became the place of this prayer and missionary sending movement. Today, by God’s grace, over 100,000 Christians are gathering every January 19th on the top of this mountain to pray for world evangelization and the nations of the world.


The day before the hike up the mountain, a few men went ahead of the group to set up this stage and sound system so that all could hear the preaching of the Word of God.


"Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching." - 1 Timothy 4:13


People hiking up the mountain very early in the morning. They were coming from every direction! 


"All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name."  Psalm 86:9


Over 80,000 people showed up that day on the top of the mountain to pray and worship our Heavenly Father.



"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth."  - John 4:24
