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.

I really enjoy meeting new people at the street breakfasts, it's refreshing and is creating a more caring community based on helping each other.
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.
As a visiting student from America, I had a lot on my mind when I arrived in Oxford, like “Would I make friends?” During my first week, a time when I was feeling very much alone in a strange country, I saw a flyer for the Edgeway Rd. Prayer Breakfast. I started going to the meetings which led to me making some wonderful friendships. It was great being able to greet my neighbours when I saw them on the street.
We're now in our fifth year of holding breakfasts or other events once a month and this Saturday's was a great delight and surprise! Of the 45 or so present there were about 10 new people from the Marston area, some who don't yet belong to any congregation. The spirit of love, praise and prayer was very touching. We hope to build on this in the months to come.
I am thankful to God for what you are doing. My prayer is that this ministry will grow throughout the UK and into Europe.
I love this idea. We had our first prayer meeting last night - it was great!
It's marvellous! Two or three people, ten or twenty, it will be wonderful because God is going to be here amongst us.
Definitely thinking of doing something ! Will be praying about it
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.
Streetprayer is important to me because it's all about building community, and community with God as the centre
It's a really good opportunity that we have as Christians to be together as one Church.
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.
We've seen people coming along who maybe haven't been to church for a very long time, and have been able to reconnect with other Christians through the prayer breakfasts.
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%.
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).
