The vision is to establish 24-7 prayer in Telford involving churches right across the borough from a wide cross-section of expressions of faith; This means setting up prayer rooms and gathering prayer concerns from the statutory body leaders with the key issues for the people of Telford.
There are clear needs in Telford.
In this eighth week of prayer we are combining prayer with "the 72" going out.
"Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom Come"
May your Love and Power be released across Telford.
Loving Telford started 5 years ago as individuals and public services faced substantial social and financial pressure. This vision for 24-7 prayer weeks was about communities from across the area praying in a sustained and focused way for Telford and Wrekin. Seeking the heart of God for Telford – asking questions such as;
- What would heaven look like in Telford? In Zechariah Chapter 8, v4 and 5 the Message translation gives us the vision of a great place to grow up in and a great place to grow old. Is that what we want for Telford a place where the generations mix well on the streets?
- By praying together, we are promised in Psalm 133 – that God will bless unity. It says….”How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head”… For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life for evermore”
