1. BEGINNINGS
Several prayer initiatives contributed to the birth of the International Prayer Council (e.g. The International Prayer Assembly for World Evangelization in 1984 in Korea and the World Prayer Advisory Council). The International Prayer Council came into being just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Prayer leaders from around the world decided to form a new organization that would connect prayer networks and ministries worldwide to focus prayer on common global concerns.

At the end of 2002, almost 300 prayer network leaders from all 15 world regions gathered in Cape Town, South Africa to strategize how prayer networks and ministries worldwide could become better connected for focus on the fullness of God's purposes for the body of Christ. They resolved to work together for the glory of Jesus Christ and the healing and transformation of the nations.

2. THE VISION OF THE INTERNATIONAL PRAYER COUNCIL
"Compelled by God to seek Christ's glory worldwide for the blessing, healing and transforming of the nations, the International Prayer Council exists as a coalition of prayer networkers and mobilizers working together to motivate, develop and equip national movements and local churches to fill al nations with prayer for the fulfillment of the Great Commandment and the completion of the Great Commission."
