Streetprayer is important to me because it's all about building community, and community with God as the centre
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.
It's a really good opportunity that we have as Christians to be together as one Church.
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
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.
I live on my own. I love people and company. I also like singing hymns, so I enjoy it very much. I'm very pleased they knocked on my door that morning
I love this idea. We had our first prayer meeting last night - it was great!
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.
It's marvellous! Two or three people, ten or twenty, it will be wonderful because God is going to be here amongst us.
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'm 83 now and getting around is more difficult. Meeting people on the street and singing praises together has been such a joy.
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.
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 had 6 altogether for Breakfast - all from our Lane. 3 new people. Very enjoyable event. Good discussion, worship and prayer time
Definitely thinking of doing something ! Will be praying about it
