24-7 Prayer

PRAYING TOGETHER

FOR OUR WORLD, NATION & TOWN

“A prayer room is first and foremost a living room – a place where the Father waits for his children to come and climb into his arms.” Pete Greig
We believe prayer changing things and as it says in Matthew 18:20, “where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them”.
Churches that pray together begin to see the miraculous power of God at work in their midst. Praying together, as a group of believers, helps bring the unity that Christ prayed for (John 17:22-23).
By using 24/7 prayer initiative, our network of local churches regularly unite together to cover our community, nation and world in prayer.
It was indeed a blessing to spend that time just focused on the current situation.

The theme for our town wide 24/7 prayer room hosted at Life Destiny Church was ‘Blessed are the peace makers…’ (Matt. 5:9).  Running for 24 hrs over 7 days leading up to Pentecost, Christians from the town untied to create 12 creative and thoughtful prayer stations. Together, we prayed for peace across of town, country, and world and for more people to come to know Jesus.

Here are just some of the stories form the prayer room:

Creeping out of the house in the middle of the night to pray felt like such treasure, so exciting!

I have drawn and sung and kneeled and laid down. Laughed and cried and felt so peaceful.I’ve loved the fairy lights and the cosy corners, the feel of the floor, the creative tasks and beautiful books. I felt connected with parts of the earth I have never seen and people I have never met. I have sat and rested at the knee of the creator of the universe.

It is a space to feel Loved, in spite of everything in us and in the world.

The prayer room was so good. Thank you so much to you and everyone else involved. I thought an hour would be plenty of time but actually I could happily have stayed 2-3 hours. There was so much to engage with and some really thoughtful creative ideas. I found it very moving being alone in that space with God and knowing that it was a continuous place of prayer – there was definitely a tangible sense of the presence of God and it was so peaceful. I came home with several post it notes to stick in my journal of things that came to mind whilst I was praying.
It’s a peaceful space, beautifully laid out, with opportunities for creative prayer and silent prayer, intercession and contemplation.  I am trying to work out when I can go back for a second visit!  The 24-7 prayer guides were especially helpful, and standing or kneeling on countries to pray for them on the huge map was powerful.
