prayerscapes - creative journeys in worship and prayer

creative prayer journeys

about prayerscapes

Prayerscapes has been born out of Revelation Family Church, England (where 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.

In the last year over a million people came to 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 two million views - subscribe here to keep up to date with our latest film releases.
