The Border Prayer Rooms website will soon be available in Welsh. After the Ludlow
meeting on the 12th earlier this month, we had a volunteer step in to translate the
whole site for us. What an answer to prayer! Photo’s from that meeting will be shown

Leavers and details of the Border Prayer Room Project given by Yvonne Mason.
30/03/11 Abergavenny Border Prayer Room can’t get enough
Abergavenny Border Prayer Room will be continuing their prayer room until the 1st
of June. They will be running an open house, 24/7 prayer room, from the time the
baton is passed onto the next location. Abergavenny location leader, Ange Sampson,
says, “...when I was laughing with Yvonne at the Powys prayer Conference about how
much work goes into building prayer spaces, I heard a voice that said, "Well do it
for a week then".......What an exciting prospect. We held a week of continuous prayer
here a couple of years ago, the transformation that came about because of it was
amazing, with many lives impacted....”
Now everyone seems to want to scramble up the High Places and bless our nations!
On Saturday 14th, not one, but two groups are joining together (including one all
the way from the Forest of Dean who are leaving Mitcheldean at 4.30am) are planning
to go up Snowdon. In addition, there is the group walking up Scafell Pike in the
District, and also we've now heard of a group who are going up Ben Nevis in Scotland,
who will be praying for our two nations of England and Wales as part of the Project!
But it doesn't stop there! We have a group going up Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons;
another going up Moel Famau in North Wales; as well as groups going up local High
Places in the Churchstoke area (Mid Wales), the Oswestry area; a group in Kent, and
several others scattered over England and Wales! It's going to be a busy day! Well
done to all those doing the scrambling and praying, and may they be blessed and inspired
as they do so!
14/5/11 More prayer walkers as relay prepares to begin
Today the first day of the Border Prayer Room Relay, another fantastic separate event
is also taking place simultaneously with the Project events . A group from Pioneer
People, Wirral, a church linked to the Pioneer Network, have gathered a team to walk
from Talcre Beach to West Kirby. They have called the Walk the Lasso Walk, from a
picture they received of standing at Talcre Beach lassoing West Kirby – pulling the
two nations of England and Wales together. They are starting the walk this morning
(Saturday 14th May) and will finish it tomorrow afternoon (Sunday 15th May).
It's fantastic to see how God is moving His people to pray for and bless England
and Wales in unity! The Border Prayer Room Project wishes the Lasso Walk every success
and blessing in their endeavour.
It's great to know that several national and international Christian organisations
are actively supporting the Border Prayer Room Project in prayer. The Salvation Army
sent out this notice to their UK Territory people recently:
To the 24-7/SA Live Network
As I write to you today I am remembering Newtown Corps (West Midlands) will be praying
today 24-7 as part of the Border Prayer Initiative which is an ecumenical event.
'God is calling the Border people of England and Wales to join together in a continuous
prayer relay, Two prayer rooms, one in England and one in Wales will simultaneously
pray for 24 hours, then hand the ‘baton’ of prayer onto the next pair of prayer rooms.
This prayer relay will take two weeks to complete, and bring God’s much needed blessing
in a region that has literally been a historical ‘war zone’, both physically and
We've also heard that Aglow International, the Lydia Fellowship, and Prayer for the
Nations are standing with us, and we'd like to pass on our thanks and greetings from
the Border Prayer Room Project to these organisations. Be Blessed!
21/5/11 New Carpark facility for Sedbury Hills
“We have been blessed with new car parking for Sedbury Cliffs which is as close
as we can get with transport. The farmer is a friend of a friend and he is delighted
to let us use his field for parking. He regularly runs a sport where people are inside
huge plastic balls and roll down his fields so has parking for 100’s of cars………….he
is going to cut the grass and trim the hedges too!” says Isobel.
