#PRAYLONDON acts a catalyst to unite the church in prayer in Jesus’ name during a major crisis in our capital.
In November 2019, there were 10 local #PRAYLONDON events hosted by church unity groups,
local churches and prayer networks.
Centrally, the #PRAYLONDON team created complimentary material that was used locally,
mobilising prayer focused on the challenging issues facing London with insights on how to pray
strategically and intentionally. This material included:
• Crafted Powerpoint
• Key prayer points
• Interviews with strategic people
In March 2020, the #PRAYLONDON team are again creating some material to help Christians
in London pray for the city.
We will be focusing the prayers on leadership and influence in our city.
The content is created for churches to ‘plug in and play’ and can be
used as a stand alone event or adapted to be used as part of an existing prayer gathering.
Where possible, one of the #PRAYLONDON team may be able to come and take part in the
The local hosts are responsible for any costs (eg worship leaders, church hall usage).
We would love to have you partner with us in hosting a local #PRAYLONDON event in March!

Rev Les Isaac shares his heart behind the #PrayLondon initiative.
"2017 was a very eventful year for London. Out of that came a sense that the walls of the city were breached and in need of a spiritual covering."
THE STORY SO FAR...
After the terrorist attacks and Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, Les Isaac (Ascension Trust) brought some key London leaders together and a strong desire was expressed to raise the visibility and strategy of Christian prayer across London.
An emergency prayer response plan (#PRAYLONDON) was developed to help connect and inform Christians praying across the city of the latest crisis needs from local churches on the ground and formal response teams, and to encourage the Church as we stand together in prayer. We share these prayer points via our mailing list. Please sign up below to recieve these emails.
The #PRAYLONDON team have also gathered twice a year with church leaders and intercessors from across the city to cover issues such as Brexit’s impact on London and Knife Crime.

Pray for the vulnerable in our city who will be impacted the most by all of the effects of this pandemic
Pray for people's mental health. Pray that fear and anxiety will be replaced by the peace of God as people start to self isolate for prolonged periods of time.
Please pray against the discrimination of people from an South East-Asian backgrounds and that kindness will reign.
Pray for our NHS and community care workers as they serve on the frontlines.
Pray that our government would be strong and wise in their leadership and decision making.
Thank God for the response of many Christians in contacting people in their streets to offer support if they are self-isolating. Pray that this would continue to increase over time.
We join with Christians all over the world to pray for an end to the Coronavirus outbreak. Declare Psalm 91 over our city - "God is our refuge and fortress; My God, in Him we will trust. Surely He shall deliver us from... the perilous pestilence."
We pray that those who are sick quickly recover and don't infect others; and those working in the NHS are kept safe and have the resources they need to meet the increased demands and pressure. We ask for treatments to quickly become available to end the Coronavirus outbreak.
We pray against fear and panic that would disrupt our city and economy. We ask for wisdom for our leaders and those making difficult policy decisions. We pray that all decisions are wise. Enable people in London who are anxious to find peace (2 Tim 1:7).
