The Global Day of prayer is a world-wide movement that for a number of years saw millions of people from 220 nations gather in local stadiums and parks to pray for their own nation and for the world. I was so thankful for the opportunity to serve the church in Calgary as the worship band director and leader for the Calgary Global Day gatherings. The event was initially held at the Calgary Saddledome (home of the Calgary Flames) for two consecutive years and almost 18,000 people gathered for prayer over that period. I continued to serve in the capacity of band director and worship leader at various smaller GD venues around the city until the final event in Calgary in May 2010.
