This is the second year that the National Day of Prayer and Worship have been delighted to partner with the Korean World Prayer School, led by Pastor Namsoo Choi in Korea.

As part of the Monday evening, the National Day of Prayer and Worship were delighted to host a Leaders Reception for approximately 150 church leaders and Intercessors from across the Nation. During the Reception, convened by Pastor Jonathan Oloyede, stories were shared from what God has been doing in the various areas which hosted teams.

Steve Clifford from the Evangelical Alliance along with denominational representatives led a powerful time of repentance and prayer for the unity of the whole church across the Isles.

The National Prayer Celebrations which brought to a climax to this year's South Korean Prayer Mission have seen hundreds of Korean Missionaries cry out to God for the state of the UK, literally weeping tears of blessing on British soil in over 30 towns and cities.

Teams have visited towns up and down the country meeting with many Christians and people on the streets, prayer walking, holding all night prayer vigils and supporting local church initiatives. Many regions visited testified of the tremendous encouragement brought by these fellow believers from Korea.

The Celebrations were supported by a host of organisations including the London Prayer Rooms, London City Mission, Evangelical Alliance, New Wine, Heart Cry and the Emmanuel Centre. One of the prophetic acts during this year's National Celebrations was to pray for London, as the capital of the UK.

During the evening too, a call was issued via social media to invite Christians from the country to unite in praying 'Thy kingdom come, thy will be done'. Thousands of people joined in virtually to pray for a United Kingdom whilst the event was beamed live to millions of people in Asia via the CTS TV platform.
 
Reflecting on the South Korean Prayer Mission, Pastor Jonathan Oloyede, Convenor of the National Day of Prayer and Worship said:
 
"This is indeed a very powerful prophetic picture of the Global Church uniting with the British Church for the reviving of Christianity across these isles.

"This year's mission builds on last year's momentum of placing prayer at the heart of everything we do in our local churches and organisations. Let's keep on praying and believing!"
Graham Miller, Chief Executive of London City Mission added:
 
"What a joy to pray together with so many bothers and sisters from Korea. The Lord has brought the nations to London and he uses his diverse Church to reach this remarkable, diverse city. We give thanks for Pastor Choi reminding us to worship and pray in spirit and in truth."

South Korean Prayer Mission will be featured on BBC1's Songs of Praise on Sunday at 5pm.  Last week, the Songs of Praise team traveled to Bristol to share in part of their programme and speak to Pastor Namsoo Choi, President of the Korean World Prayer School.
