prayerscapes - creative journeys in worship and prayer

creative prayer journeys


about prayerscapes


Prayerscapes has been born out of Revelation Family Church, England (where www.24-7prayer.com all began) and is both a personal and corporate expression of journeying with God and his people. It seeks to reflect the creative God we worship through the creation of contemporary soundtracks, short films and new prayers for daily living.

Currently over 100,000 people every month visit prayerscapes to pray, watch the online films and listen to the soundtracks. Prayerscapes films and resources have been used at national conferences (such as the New Wine and Spring Harvest celebrations in the UK) and across the world in churches, prisons, hospitals, schools and even at Hawaiian wedding ceremonies! The prayerscapes youtube channel has recently clocked over 1,500,000 views - subscribe here to keep up to date with our latest film releases.

Equally in real life it fascinates me how  retakes can transform our thinking, unlock our heart or heal our experiences. As followers of Christ we are urged Read More
