We even had a note saying how much the event had been appreciated!

I pray that these two keys - unity and prayer - would turn in Oxford's locks, and the flood of revival would flow! God loves Oxford and has a plan for her for good and to give her a future and a hope. But it seems in history He waits for heart unity and he waits for prayer.
I pray that this Jan 30 prayer initiative is fun and also fruitful.

We had 6 altogether for Breakfast - all from our Lane. 3 new people. Very enjoyable event. Good discussion, worship and prayer time
Travelling out of the area to work meant I didn't know many of my neighbours, unless it was through the school. It has been lovely to get to know people who live 'down the road' and share a meal and pray together.
Love Oxford welcomes the Streetprayer initiative as a breathtakingly simple way to get to know other Christians in your street (unity) and to get to intercede for the Oxford area (prayer).
Definitely thinking of doing something ! Will be praying about it
I only started coming to the prayer breakfast in Edgeway road 2 months ago. I was surprised by the open, welcoming atmosphere. These were people with a heart for their community, people that wanted to put their faith into practice, break the anonymity amongst the residents in their street. I am so intrigued by the idea that I want to start the same prayer initiative where I live.
I did go ahead with a prayer breakfast. There were only two of us there, but it was a good time & well worth meeting and praying. Really enjoyed connecting with another Christian who lives across the road.
Being new in the area, I was looking to be a part of my neighbourhood and when I heard about Streetprayer, it was a prayer answered. It's such an amazing work and better still, God is in it 100%.
I have been living on Edgeway Road for 10+ years. All this time I did not feel a sense of belonging to or purpose for the street where I live. The prayer breakfast has opened up a door through which I have not only shared a meal with my neighbours but also prayer and conversation on matters that concern each individual.
Today is the first Big Breakfast event. For me it's wonderful to be part of something that I know that God wants. To see Christians in all areas meet together and know who our neighbours are, and who our fellow Christians are.
This is just to let you know that we have started a Soup & Prayer meeting monthly on our road, on the last Tuesday of the month. I put a sign outside for a few days before and everyone is welcome to join us to pray for whatever is on their mind. We live in , Leicestershire
Thank you for your prayers. Four people came to the breakfast, and I had three apologies from ones who would have liked to come, but couldn't manage that day. I felt very encouraged and when I went to church the next day, someone asked me about it and was enthusiastic about developing this idea in our area. I'm aiming to have another one on 21st April and will exend the invitation a bit further.
The Streetprayer groups are doing a wonderful job in bringing people together, and celebrating what we have as a community. I was privileged to be invited to a prayer breakfast a few months ago and was struck by the warmth and peace of the meeting. As a local councillor, building strong communities is something I am passionate about. The prayer breakfasts draw people together as neighbours and build up a sense of belonging in a spiritual way beyond religious denomination or politics. I hope that they will continue to grow and thrive.
Streetprayer is important to me because it's all about building community, and community with God as the centre
I’m a great believer in streetprayer. It’s wonderful for Christians from different churches to get together unitedly in love for one another, get to know each other and then encourage each other to get to know their neighbours. Our communities aren’t as strong as they might be. And if we Christians start by getting to know each other and then reaching out in love to others, that could make a real difference to our city. So I really commend the work of the prayer breakfasts.
I am thankful to God for what you are doing. My prayer is that this ministry will grow throughout the UK and into Europe.
