Prayer changes things and alters the course of human history.
Prayer is something that is not automatic and is something that is learnt over time, but also by diving in and simply praying.
It's been argued that 10,000 hours is the length of time it takes to gain world-class competence at any skill. What would it be like if Christians in Guernsey committed themselves to pray unceasingly for 10,000 hours as an act of seemingly extravagant waste? It could be viewed as an experiment……
- What would happen to individuals and communities of faith as they engaged in the enterprise of unceasing prayer?
- Would people sense that God had answered their prayers for different situations and circumstances?
- Would people encounter in a new way the presence of God?
- Would such an experiment do any harm?
The Guernsey House of Prayer, located in the Fellowship Rooms at St Peter's Church, has been established as part of the 24/7 Prayer Network to undertake this 'experiment' and to provide a safe and dedicated space for individuals and small groups to come aside and pray.
The prayer room can be booked out for one person, for two people or for a group of people (most sessions are private but there will be open sessions where people can just turn up). To book a time slot in the prayer room please click here.
