Adventist Church Starts Global 10 Days of Prayer Campaign; and other world news

01 Jan 2022

This week on ANN.

ANN sat down with Dr. Katia Reinert to discuss maintaining a healthy lifestyle during the new year and the Youth Alive Ministry.

Every Adventist member has been praying that this year would be different than last, that COVID would end, and we would be able to see our family and friends again safely. While many restrictions have eased, COVID-19 still looms over almost everyone, and everyone faces another year of uncertainty. Even uncertainty prevails, God is ultimately in control, and His deep love, mercy, and grace are with His children always.

Adventist Church’s prayer initiative 10 Days of Prayer will happen from January 5-15. 10 Days of Prayer is the time when Seventh-day Adventists from all over the world come together to pray corporately. ANN sat down with Jonathan Walter, communication manager for the Ministerial Association, to talk about the Adventist Church’s Believe His Prophets Bible reading program and the theme of “The Three Angels Call to Prayer.”

March 19 is Global Youth Day. Global Youth Day is when young people from all over the world take the time to “Be the Sermon” in their communities. This year’s theme is “Loving the Forgotten.” The Youth Department sends this report.

Adventist Church will be having its 10 Days of Prayer from January 5-15. The Church will finish its Believe His Prophets reading plan on January 13, and it will start again on January 14. More information can be found at On January 18, the Adventist Church will hold a special General Conference Session, with just one agenda item—to allow GC Session to be held online, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions which could impact GC Session this June in St. Louis. Also, the Children’s Virtual Global Conference will be held on January 27 and 28. On April 12 and 13, the Adventist Church executive committee will hold its annual Spring Meetings. And finally, from June 6 through 11, the Seventh-day Adventist World Church will have its General Conference Session. The meetings will be held in St. Louis, Missouri.

Most people make a few New Year’s resolutionsーthey want to renew their relationship with God, continue their relationships with others, and get healthy. ANN talked to Dr. Katia Reinert, Associate Director of Health Ministries for the World Church, about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the mental health initiative for young people, Youth Alive.
