Five steps to a 24-7 Prayer Room
Wondering how to begin mobilising non-stop prayer in your community? Follow these 5 easy steps to get stuck in:
1. Gather a group
Find others to pray with – your church community, local Christian friends, student group, mission team, work colleagues or whoever God has placed around you.
The strength of community - people committing to God together – is the most important thing when starting a 24-7 Prayer adventure. Gather your group, share your vision, and get started.
2. Pick a time
Choose how long you want to pray for and when – is there a specific period of time, or a significant opportunity for your community? When feels like a reasonable time to pray?
Many people decide to begin with a week of non-stop prayer, but choose whatever feels most appropriate to your group. Give everyone lots of notice, and prepare to pray. Register your 24-7 Prayer room so that we can support you along the way too!
3. Find a place
Find somewhere accessible 24 hours a day that can fit however many people you think will pray at once.
We’ve heard of people praying in churches, tents, caravans, trucks, shops, basements – so don’t feel limited! Find a place that works for your community or friendship group.
4. Think creatively
24-7 Prayer rooms provide a space for people to connect with God in different ways, so think outside of the box! Include materials for people to paint and draw their prayers; activities to inspire and encourage; suggested things to pray for.
5. Get Praying!
Break your time of 24-7 Prayer into one-hour slots, and ask people to sign up – you will receive an online tool or sign-up sheet template after registering your prayer room.
