National Prayer Weekend going global

Almost 1000 villages, towns and cities across the world are taking part in the National Prayer Weekend 2016 from 23-25 September ...

With nearly 1,000 villages, towns and cities around the world already joining in, the numbers continue to rise as more churches and groups of people are signing up to pray for their local community during the National Prayer Weekend 2016.

There are 124 postcode areas in the UK, and the National Prayer Weekend map now has pins in 115 of them!

But it's not just the UK joining in – churches and prayer groups from Australia, America, Nigeria and Singapore are springing up on the world map ready to make their mark on their own local areas.

The National Prayer Weekend offers the opportunity to introduce people in your community to God – who loves them – through the power of prayer. It provides a platform for anyone and everyone to gather prayer requests from neighbours, teachers and local supermarket cashiers to bus drivers, MPs and nurses.

The video above was filmed at New Wine with lots of people who are passionate about praying for people in their local community.
