Originally affiliated to 24-7 Prayer UK, in 2015 Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, subsequently renamed as City Prayer, was started as initiative to bring together, the Christians of our City through prayer and our mutual love of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
Up until 2021, we sought to purposefully pray that the Good News of Jesus will be taken out into our communities, causing transformation, blessing and revival to our City.
We saw ourselves as ‘catalyst’, working in partnership with local Churches and Christian organisations, especially Christians Together in Chelmsford (CTiC).
Seasons however change, and in 2021, it was felt that as an organisation, City Prayer should cease and that God had others to carry on the work of prayer in our City.
Where did the vision come from?
Looking beyond, David then heard God speak about creating ‘portable Prayer Spaces’, where resources were transported and set up at different churches, to guide prayers, for a few hours at a time on various days.
Prayer Walking has made us a visible presence in our City Centre and Communities, seeking to bless and pray for the The Kingdom of God to come to our streets.
Our Prayer Tent, has also been taken to community events during the Spring and summer months.
Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer also initiated and been involved with other prayer and outreach initiatives around Chelmsford. Details can be found here.
