Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer is an initiative to bringing together Christians, their churches and local Christian organisations, through prayer.
Unity and true love for each other only comes through the gospel of Jesus Christ, through the bond of the Holy Spirit. Together, by praying in His Name and taking the Good News of Jesus Christ out into our communities, we are seeing transformation, blessing and revival over our City and District; to the lives of all who live, work or visit here.
We see ourselves as a Catalyst, and seek to work in ever greater partnership with The Local Church* and Christian organisations. We are clear to all we work with, that in line with the Great Commission of Jesus, (Matthew 28: 16-20), our primary motivation is to work to see the people of our City come into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and to become His Disciples.
All we stand for is fully grounded in the teachings of The Bible.
*Since May 2016, we have been formally associated with Christians Together in Chelmsford
Where did the vision come from?
Looking beyond, David then heard God speak about creating ‘Portable Prayer Spaces’. Transporting and setting up resources to guide prayers, at different churches on various days, for a few hours at a time, these were to be places where people could spend time to encounter God, pray for the City, Nation, World, or anything else on their hearts.
Display boards and resources were developed, and between June 2015 and December 2016, David set up and manned about 135 Prayer Spaces at over a dozen local churches and also in our Cathedral. In those 18 months
we estimate over 1000 people have visited and spent time in them. In 2017 they continue.
Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer has also initiated and been involved with other prayer and outreach initiatives around Chelmsford. Details can be found here.
We are currently evolving the way our Prayer Spaces work, so that we work in greater partnership with churches. Some Churches now entirely run their own.
Prayer Walking is also now a part of what we are doing. We are a visible presence in our City Centre and Communities, seeking to bless and pray for the The Kingdom of God to come to our streets.
We have also purchased a gazebo, for use as a Prayer Tent, at community events during the Spring and summer months. Do get in touch if you would like us to consider coming along to your event
