I would like to use sequential equation numbering but I am using the report class which defaults to numbering equations within chapters. I would really appreciate if someone could help me with this.

You can use chngcntr package with its \counterwithout:

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{chngcntr}
\counterwithout{equation}{chapter}

\begin{document}

\chapter{First chapter}
\begin{equation}
  x=y
\end{equation}

\begin{equation}
  x=z
\end{equation}

\chapter{Second chapter}
\begin{equation}
  x \neq y
\end{equation}

\chapter{Third chapter}
\begin{equation}
  x= a + y
\end{equation}    
%
\end{document}
