NDOP (National Day Of Prayer) Post event Feedback
On the 29th September over 32,000 people made their way to Wembley Stadium for the National Day of Prayer and Worship.
This included a coach of 46 Christians from Leeds representing over 19 churches across the city. These Churches were; Mount Zion, Rothwell Baptist, St Georges, City Church, Church of the Nazarene, Otley Methodist, Elim Dewsbury, Good Shepherd Church, Bridge Street, Riverside, Gateway, Abundant Life Leeds, Meanwood Institute, New Testament Church Of God,Armley Deanery, Trinity Church Ossett, Elshaddi Bradford, Rothwell Baptist. There were also 3 minibuses which travelled independently from other Churches/Leaders across Leeds.
The day was awesome and had quite an impact visually, spiritually and emotionally. There was a the Children's choir on the day, who sang a very moving song 'I am not forgotten' a tribute to the many millions of Children around the world, that suffer poverty, abuse and isolation. Samaritans Purse, one of the Key Partners at Wembley have a plan to reach out to these precious ones in Jesus Name, through Operation Christmas Child. http://www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk/about
"The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to reach the world's children, to show them God's love and to tell them about Jesus," said Samaritan's Purse UK Executive Director Simon Barrington.
Here is some of the feedback we’ve had from the people who travelled with us:
“I will watch it again on Revelation TV on the 30th September, because it was phenomenal” Grace Magwanya, Abundant Life Leeds
“The Children’s Choir was a moving representation of the Nations Worshipping Jesus”. Steve Besford, Unity In Mission/Kairos Course
"The NDOP was a remarkable experience and it was a great privilege to join together with thousands across the nation, representing different nationalities, generations and denominations. The dynamic of this level of unity was truly inspirational and clearly very timely. I pray that Leeds and cities and towns across the UK will see a greater level of unified prayer as a result." Paul Lancaster, Hope For The Nations (HFTN)
“Thanks Karen for organizing us there and back to this wonderful event. It really encouraged and inspired me” Alistair Kaye, Armley Deanery
Now we are back home we might have be wondering 'what next....? ', 'What now....?' and 'how will this day help me where I live ?'.
At the end of the day we heard about Neighbourhood Prayer Network, which produced the official Legacy Book for us. The next step is simple, over the next few months we are going to unite to pray for our streets like we have never done before.
I want to you to join us and ask you to do two things.
1) Let Neighbourhood Prayer Network know, you will be praying for your street - you can do this by Clicking Here. Several hundred people have already signed up!
2) Get hold of a copy of the Legacy Book, which is packed full of resources to help you and your local church connect with your community. Order the Legacy Book by Clicking Here.
Can you imagine what would happen if everyone who came to Wembley from across the British Isles, prayed for their street, and got to know their neighbours ? The results could be amazing.
Please let your church leader know about this next step we are all taking, may be it's something that your church could do together.
