5 FOLD MINISTRY
Jonathan Edwards, from the Great Awakening said that when God has something very great to accomplish, it is His will that there should precede extraordinary prayers of His people. When it comes to prayer, extraordinary is simply a greater urge and desperation to see Christ manifest in us and through us today.
Faith without works is dead; so is prayer without works. When a person prays, faith increases and manifest in actions. A praying individual and community naturally flows with life that reaches out to fellow-human in various capacities.

Beginnings in Wall Street
Just in this millennium New York City has been a victim, survivor of some major catastrophic events such as 9/11 in 2001 and super storm Sandy in 2012 . Many Wall Street corporations were catalyst to the financial crisis of 2008 affecting many economies globally. 150 years ago in 1857 during a similar period of economic crisis, Jeremiah Lanphier, a Christian businessman was called to host prayer meeting in downtown New York during lunch hours of businesses. This initiative of a call to prayer by a lay person saw 1000s of business folks praying for revival within the next six months and spread across American cities on the east coast time that reached to about two million folks responding to the prayer call. After the 2008 financial crisis, following the pattern of prayer and repentance the Lord moved in the heart of a few believers working in the financial sector to prayer on Wall Street. There were several similar initiatives to prayer and bible study and today there are a few regular fellowships of workplace believers and business persons meeting from early morning to lunch-break hour prayer to evening meetings during weekdays on Wall Street area of New York City.
A Collaborative project
The Biblical or the New Testament way of doing anything has the basis of atonment of Christ. There are several great organizations out there on and outside Wall Street that collaborate to bring in human solutions. The world governments, United Nations, banking systems try to unify to achieve global solutions. Some intentionally seek a one world system without God. Wall Street Prayer Alliance builds on the Biblical solutions for humans. Any careful observation of a Biblical model starts with prayer. Prayer and repentance is foundational to any progress God’s way. Bible promised a time of latter glory during the time fo the second temple building where the spiritual and marketplace leaders came together to work hand in hand. We are in a new season of colaborative efforts from leaders of all cultural spheres of the society to usher in the glory of God for this generation.

“God did not bestow all products upon all parts of the earths, but distributed His gifts over different regions to the end that men might cultivate a social relationship because one would have need of the help of another, and so he called commerce into being, that all men might be able to have common enjoyment of the duties of the earth no matter where produced.”
