Resources Articles UK Update: Prayer mobilisation Prayer Mobilisation continues: Powered by prayer Revival Christian Church in Enfield, North London, recently received an award for the ‘Best Community Initiative in North London’ in the Greater London Enterprise Awards, recognising the vast array of work they are engaged in within their community. About 80 volunteers spend their time mentoring young people, visiting care homes, supporting women and children in a local refuge – and more! However, the practical work of the church is only possible because it is hugely powered by prayer!...... Since 2009, between 6 and 7am every day from Monday to Saturday, members of the church gather to pray for Enfield. They mapped out the streets of the area, praying over them, ‘claiming them for Jesus and anointing them’. When they got their own church building, they began a 7-8pm prayer slot too, then another one from 9-10pm, as well as a weekly slot for young people to gather and pray.
