The aim of 24-7 Prayer is Reconciliation The 24-7 movement seeks to prioritize Christ's two greatest commandments: to love God with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:30). We pray and work for reconciliation at three levels: spiritually - where there is broken relationship with God, socially - where there is broken relationship between people, and environmentally - where there is broken relationship with our world. 24-7 Prayer exists, therefore, 'to reconcile the world to God through Jesus Christ'. We seek to do this by mobilising the Church in prayer, mission and justice. For Christ's love compels us because... God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation... We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5
Why 24-7 Prayer? 24-7 Prayer rooms have marked many of the greatest epochs in the growth of the Christian faith: The church was born in a 24-7 prayer room in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, and it was said of them 'they all joined together constantly in prayer' (Acts 1:14) Early Christianity was incubated by the monsatic prayer centers of the Desert Fathers, the Celtic communities of Northe...rn Europe, and eventually the Benedictine and other orders. In the 18th century a Moravian community, under the leadership of Count Zinzendorf, prayed night-and-day for more than a hundred years, thereby launching the great missionary thrust of the Reformation. One of their converts was John Wesley, founder of Methodism. In the 20th century a multi-racial 24-7 prayer room in Los Angeles sparked the Pentecostal and charismatic movements bringing spiritual renewal to nearly 500 million people today. 24-7 Prayer is one of the greates things we've ever experienced, Alex Hughes, former Territorial Commander of the Salvation Army The Prayer room has a goal of being open 24/7/365.
To reach this goal we need you. Daily Prayer times: 11-2, 5-8 Many come in for private prayer times, and also united prayer times, such as Thursday nights at 6:30, and Friday Nights 6-9...we are looking for 'key keepers' that are willing to have the doors open for several hours at at time.
City Gate Prayer room believes that Lancaster city, our community and people can be transformed and healed through prayer and relationship. We have a passion to touch the hearts of people, meeting their spiritual and physical needs. we are located within walking distance of the Duke Street Garage, Square One Coffee and The Brunswick Hotel... there is always street/meter parking also.
