What is 24-7 Prayer?
24-7 Prayer is an international, interdenominational movement of prayer, mission and justice working in more than half the nations on earth. We help millions of people in thousands of locations to encounter God and engage with the needs of the world.
Our aim is to revive the church and rewire the culture through Prayer Rooms and Boiler Rooms.
Prayer Rooms renew churches and change lives:
Boiler Rooms make a measurable difference amongst the poor and the lost.
The 24-7 movement began when a simple, student-led prayer vigil suddenly went viral spreading into more than 12,000 locations and every denomination from the Catholic Church in Austria to the Salvation Army in Australia and countless persecuted fellowships in the Middle East.
"I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth."
24-7 Prayer today is a family of churches, a start-up for innovative resources, and a greenhouse for new projects and NGOs such as 24-7 Ibiza, the 24-7 Academy and Prayer Spaces in Schools. At its heart, however, 24-7 remains a non-stop prayer meeting that has continued night and day, without a break in multiple locations for every moment of this century so far.
Last night as you slept, someone somewhere was encountering God in a 24-7 Prayer Room. Right now, as you read this, someone is seeking to live out their prayers practically amongst those who are hurting. This integrated combination of spiritual formation and social transformation has attracted the attention of the media from Rolling Stone to Reader's Digest and a specially commissioned Channel 4 television documentary.
"I am more and more convinced of the centrality of
24-7 Prayer to God’s work. It chimes with the spirit of the age. We are at God’s moment, all the idols have fallen, and the task is to bring people face to face with Jesus. 24-7 Prayer does that for many."
