25 Years of Non-stop Prayer

5 September 2024 marks 25 years since the beginning of the first 24-7 Prayer room, and the start of a chain of unbroken prayer that has continued for a quarter of a century.  

25 years ago, a group of students said ‘yes’ to God’s invitation to learn how to pray. Could they pray night and day for a whole month? Their willingness to take a risk and try something new inspired others; soon other communities were saying ‘yes’ to the challenge of day and night prayer.

“When you look at what happened next and the way that a solitary prayer room became a thousand by accident, the only rational explanation is that God turned up in that first 24–7 Prayer Room and that He has continued to turn up in prayer rooms ever since.”

Pete Greig

Today, hundreds of thousands of people have said their own ‘yes’ and gone on wild adventures of faith all over the world. 

What could God do with your ‘yes’? 

Get involved:

As we celebrate 25 years of non-stop prayer, we want to:

Look back and give thanks for God’s presence and power in our midst,

Look ahead to where God is inviting us to partner with him in new ways, and 

Invite you to join our radical and extravagant vision to revive the church and rewire the culture through day and night prayer. 

Celebrate at The Gathering

A birthday party like no other. Our Gatherings are always an opportunity to pray, worship and learn together, but this year is special, because we’ll be celebrating the significant journey that’s brought us here, and we’ll be looking ahead to how God is inviting us to partner with him, to build his kingdom in our nations and in our world.
