Prayer Watch International conducts Prayer Explosions (PXs) to bring glory and honor to God, develop closer and deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit and to strengthen the prayer foundation under all mission and ministry, especially PWI.
Typically a PWI Prayer Explosion lasts for three days and devotes the time to worship (serve) the Lord through prayer and fasting.
From time to time, PWI schedules abbreviated Prayer Explosions.
They are presented in two additional and different forms:
1. A Mini Prayer Explosion (MPX) which lasts for two days
2. A Mini Mini Prayer Explosion (MMPX) which lasts for one day
Starting in 2006, PWI will conduct three different types of Prayer Explosions.
The three Prayer Explosions will vary in level of prayer experience,
prayer expression and spiritual intensity.
Each type of Prayer Explosion can be offered in three basic formats:
1. Introductory Prayer Explosion (Intro PX)
It is a gentle beginning Prayer Explosion which maybe somewhat thematic and may include more instructions such as prayer lists, preestablished prayer topics, major prayer themes, more guidance by the Prayer Explosion prayer leader(s), perhaps some discussions and explanations, less fasting, some lunch breaks, perhaps some half days (for example, two half days and one full day), singing of praise songs and generally, a more PWI guided Prayer Explosion.
2. Prophetic Prayer Explosion (Pro PX)
This type of Prayer Explosion is typically called Prophetic Intercession and includes more time in listening prayer seeking the Holy Spirit for guidance regarding what He wants the prayer focus to be. The Holy Spirit may want the entire Prayer Explosion to be on a single topic or theme. Or the Prayer Explosion may cover the "entire water front" depending on the Holy Spirit's instructions and confirmations. Typically, more time is spend in worship and praise than in the Introductory Prayer Explosion.
3. Spiritual Warrior Prayer Explosion (Warrior PX)
The Warrior Prayer Explosion is devoted almost entirely to worship and praying in the spirit or praying in heavenly tongues. Only limited times include praying "with understanding." The gift of praying in tongues is a requirement for participation in this Prayer Explosion. It is the most intense type of Prayer Explosion offered by PWI at this time. The PUSH prayer, PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS, is the norm for the Warrior Prayer Explosion. Serious battles in the realm of the heavenlies take place during these Prayer Explosions.
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood. But against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" Ephesians 6:10 (see also Luke 10:19 and 2 Corinthians 10:4-5)
