How to run a 24-7 Prayer Room

A 24-7 Prayer room is a creative prayer space that enables a chain of unbroken prayer, bringing friends, communities and churches together to seek the presence of God.

Get Started

Follow these 5 easy steps and begin mobilising non-stop prayer in your community:

1. Gather a group

Who are you inviting to pray? Perhaps it’s your church community, local Christian friends, student group, mission team, work colleagues or whoever God has placed around you. The strength of the group who are committing to pray together is the most important thing.

Gather your group, share your vision, and get started.

2. Pick a time

Decide how much time you’d like to dedicate to non-stop prayer and when in the year you’d like to do this. Is there a specific period of time or a significant moment for your community to cover in prayer?

Many people decide to begin with a week of non-stop prayer, but choose whatever feels most appropriate to your group – it can be shorter or longer than this! Give everyone lots of notice and prepare to pray.

3. Find a place

When deciding where you’d like to pray, consider how many people will be signing up to pray at once, and make sure you can access the space 24 hours a day.

We’ve heard groups praying in churches, tents, caravans, trucks, shops, basements – so don’t feel limited! Find a place that works for your community.

4. Think creatively

24-7 Prayer rooms provide a space for people to connect with God in different ways. Consider how you can help people engage through all their senses. Include materials for people to paint and draw their prayers, and activities to inspire and encourage.

The aim is to engage the whole heart and mind to connect with God.

5. Get praying

Register your prayer room with us! You’ll receive an online sign-up sheet where members of your group can sign up and decide how long they would like to pray for.
