Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise…

At Encounter Culture 24-7 Prayer will be gathering together from across the world to encounter God to re-engage in the world that we live in. Lives that are not just counter-culture, but encountering God in culture will transform the world from within. Do you need inspiration and equipping to kick start your prayer life? Are you exploring new forms of missional community? Are you trying to work out why you are where you are? Have you felt compelled to engage with the social problems around you but didn’t know how? Join an international gathering of prayer warriors, church planters, artists and activists in Ireland’s beautiful capital city as we encounter God and take the next step in fulfilling God’s purposes for our lives.
I can’t wait to meet you in one of the world’s coolest cities, for a life-changing encounter with God, and a world-changing vision for this generation.” Pete Greig

24-7 has become one of the most radical prayer movements of our time. What started as a month of continual prayer in a room in the shadow of Chichester Cathedral has self-seeded itself so that 24-7 prayer rooms are springing up, not only all over the UK, but throughout the world. As people get involved in 24-7 prayer it is striking how they become transformed – one young girl was thrilled at how she could feel herself changing more and more each time she gets involved in a 24-7 prayer week.
The 24-7 Prayer Manual shares these experiences of those who get involved, the history of 24-7 prayer in earlier generations, the practicalities of setting up and running a 24-7 prayer room, the 5 keys to 24-7 (S.M.I.L.E.)(or training for those who want to be involved).
“His whisper is much louder in here” (Jen, age 13)
“24-7 is making history as an unstoppable global prayer movement, and has caught the imagination of a rising generation…..This brilliant book will inspire you with practical help on how to establish 24-7 in your own community.” (Dr Patrick Dixon, Director of Global Change Ltd and author of Futurewise)
Back cover: From the Upper Room of Pentecost and ancient Celtic monasteries via the Moravian hundred-year prayer meeting and the outrageously inter-racial prayer room of Azusa Street right up to the modern day 24-7 phenomenon, non-stop prayer has marked some of the church’s most astonishing moments. Now you can be part of it.

“I got so hungry for more of God, I wanted to learn to really hear his voice for myself. I was tired of hearing everybody else’s stories of God’s power in other parts of the world or at other times in history – I was longing to see it now! I was busy planting churches and doing all sorts of cool things with young people but I began to realise that prayer is the key to everything else in the Christian life…”
An interview with Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 Prayer movement and author of Red Moon Rising and God on Mute. He answers tough questions like How do you hear Gods voice? How do you know it’s God, not your own thinking? and How can we encourage teens and students who believe in God, but find it hard to persevere in prayer?
