We love these testimonies from Churches across GB running 24-7 Prayer Rooms this January!
This month we're thanking God for:
- Students praying night and day
- Random acts of kindness

AWAKENED TO PRAY IN A WHOLE NEW WAY! - York
‘We had a uni student pray for 8 hours through the night! They had initially planned to be there for 1 hour - but felt awakened to prayer in a whole new way!’

PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION - An answer to prayer
‘My 25 year old son has a long history of violent and aggressive behaviour. Over the years, his psychiatrists said he has no empathy for others only sympathy for himself. I put his name on the prayer wall as I prayed for him and others to know Jesus and feel His presence.
My son rang me that evening, excited to tell me that he had been to our local shopping centre and had helped an older person to carry their bags. He was experiencing for the first time, the joy you feel in your heart when you do a random act of kindness. I know Jesus was there and I know my son felt him! Amen’
CREATIVE PRAYER STATIONS – Epic Vineyard Church
‘In our 24-7 Prayer room, the stations started by focusing on what we were carrying into the space (by holding onto weights and then laying them down) then some time in a quiet space. We then went through stations focusing on our relationship with God, self, others and the world.
One of the main themes that emerged was freedom and how we are created to live in freedom. People were encouraged to focus on the sin in their life (writing sinner on their hand in washable felt) and then wash it away and watch the sinner word disappear. Then they wrote the word free on their hand and kept that on their hand.’
EZEKIEL 36:26 – Westray
'At the end of the week; in the room one of the repeated verses seen in the room was Ezekiel 36:26: "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh".’
