This is the second week of prayer this year where Oldham and Saddleworth Churches have hosted the prayer.  Eike Harvey coordinated this week by inviting MHOP to lead a 4 hour praise and worship session,  encouraging a number of churches to hold prayer sessions in their churches etc.  Prayer information from other weeks of prayer and prayer requests for Oldham, Saddleworth and greater Manchester were sent to around 50 churches to pray during this week.

Churches involved across both of the weeks were Family Church Uppermill, Sandy Lane Community Church Dobcross, St Thomas Church Delph, St Thomas Church Moorside, Beulah Baptist, Chadderton Community Church, Moorside Harvest Community Church and several individuals across a number of churches.



LifeChurch Sale had a prayer room open every day from 9am – 5pm with almost all of the hour slots filled.  Many said this week was a special time to reconnect in the prayer room and pray for their church, community,  Greater Manchester and the world.  In the room there were various prayer stations to reflect, to pray for those that don’t yet know Jesus, cross, communion, a map of the world etc.  This prayer week was organised by Tim and Becci Arnold who worked for many months with the 24/7 project in Ibiza with Brian Heasley and his family.




Gateway Community Church Eccles is very pleased to pick up the baton for the Prayer Love Greater Manchester initiative and make a Holy Spirit contribution to the months of prayers offered by so many other churches.

We’ve been praying in our meetings for the persecuted church, for Christians in conflict zones all over the world and peace in our world, our nation, our city. We lift up our prayers to our almighty Father and, through Jesus, we walk in the faith of his extraordinary promises to all those who love him. We call on the help of the Holy Spirit and pray for those yet to bend the knee to our creator and his Son, our Lord Jesus.

We pray all will read the signs and not wait to put all their faith in God in heaven. We pray for the hearts of the perpetrators of senseless killings around the world, that their hearts become softened, and they look to Jesus for the answers to their fear.

In his holy name we pray.

 The prayer week is going amazingly well. The pastoral team is very happy with the fact that over 100 people are taking part in the prayer week. Pastor Paul Hallam, Senior Pastor and Pastor Dele Oderinde, Prayer ministry leader have expressed that they have seen a crescendo in attendance at PowerHouse (our monthly prayer meeting).

People with selfless faith are paying at 3,4 and 5 am for their brothers and sisters in Iraq, Gaza, Nigeria and all over the world. Sister Joyce Mbwana said she felt conviction during her prayer time at 4 am, to do a fast 1 day a week and donating the money of the meal that she skipped to Iraq and other struggling zone’s. We have testimonies of prophetic dreams.

So far this week has proved to be a time that God is poring of His goodness and instead of keeping it to themselves, people are willing to give it out to brothers and sisters that they don’t even know.

I personally believe the prayer night we have planned for Sunday Night at 6 pm we will see the power of agreement. We are consecrating our selves to live in obedience to Christ. We have decided to Follow Jesus is not just a song it’s what the Lighthouse congregation has decided to do cooperatively.

I want to thank and acknowledge the team behind the love Pray Manchester initiative it’s been a breath of fresh air. Thanks for taking on this mammoth task.

The Upper Room are a group of pastors who pray faithfully every Monday night for Greater Manchester.  Many of these pastors have been called from other countries to the UK to pray for our Nation to prepare the way of the Lord.  They are holding the baton for 2 weeks during this year and are praying 24/7 across their various churches (taking 24 hours each) over the fortnight.  Any pastors that would be interested in joining them email on here and we will put you in contact with Pastor Dapo (pictured above holding the baton).
