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.
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
