Elim Bible Week Backs Wembley 2012

Elim Bible Week Backs Wembley 2012

Thousands gathered at Elim Bible Week at the Telford International Centre, this week and gave their unprecedented support to the National Day of Prayer and Worship taking place at Wembley Stadium, September 29, 2012.

Elim national leaders, pastors, worship leaders and church members all committed themselves to mobilising thousands to gather for Wembley 2012.

"We're right behind the phenomenal initiative of The National Day of Prayer and Worship at Wembley later on this year. We're doing all we can to play our part in being behind those who are organising it and to encourage our people to participate in what I think will be a huge catalyst for a move of God in our nation," said Elim's Superintendent John Glass this week.

He added: "Elim is supporting this event because it's a God moment, it's a God time.  To see Wembley filled with people praying from all over the country, whether they're black, brown or Hispanic, whether they're old or young, just to see all those tributaries coming to this great current and energy for prayer and intercession will be amazing."

And to show their support Elim have appointed their Regional Leader for the Metropolitan area of London, David Campbell to be part of the National Day of Prayer and Worship organising body.  

"The majority of people are saying isn't it glorious to have Wembley as a place to come and worship Jesus.  We've got coaches coming from Scotland, Birmingham, Luton and all across London many will come  by tube and  by every means possible they're coming.  We don't want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity."

David who overseas more than 110 churches across London went on to say:

"Wembley 2012 will be a measuring mark towards revival, because when people come together and forget their creed, colour and denomination, whatever they are they just come and say we want God to move in our nation we will see the King come back to the United Kingdom."

Many other Elim National Leaders echo David's sentiment, including Simon Foster, Senior Pastor of Bristol Elim Church:

"Our churches all over the nation are starting to rally to this event. I think it's the beginning of something that will be a catalyst for an ongoing sense of commitment to investing in prayer for this nation."

Many worship leaders are also getting excited about joining together for a time of united day of worship and intercession, including Helen Yousaf, who is part of the Elim Sound worship team:

"We have to be there and be part of what God is doing in the UK.  I'm just so excited and cannot wait to be there and see what God is going to do after that day.  That's where God commands a blessing in the unity and the flow from intercession to worship.  It's going to be just how God intended church to be and it's going to be the most inspiring occasion."

The National Day of Prayer and Worship is hosted by GDOP London in collaboration with national organisations, key denominations, the local churches and regional networks.  

GDOP London Convener Jonathan Oloyede was overwhelmed by the response at this week's Elim Bible Week, where he was a keynote speaker:  

"I'm so encouraged by the unprecedented support from the Elim movement and momentum building towards Wembley 2012, as well as many other key denominations and networks who are signing up for this historic event.

"We need every Christian in the UK to start registering and getting their churches to book coaches to come to Wembley 2012 and be part of this united day of prayer and worship to prepare the way for revival in this nation."
