Elim Bible Week Backs Wembley 2012

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

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

"We're right behind the phenomenal initiative of The National Day ofPrayer and Worship at Wembley later on this year. We're doing all we can toplay our part in being behind those who are organising it and to encourage ourpeople to participate in what I think will be a huge catalyst for a move of Godin 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 allover the country, whether they're black, brown or Hispanic, whetherthey're old or young, just to see all those tributaries coming to this greatcurrent and energy for prayer and intercession will be amazing."

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

"The majority of people are saying isn't it glorious to have Wembley asa place to come and worship Jesus.  We've got coaches coming fromScotland, Birmingham, Luton and all across London many will come  by tubeand  by every means possible they're coming.  We don't want tomiss 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 peoplecome together and forget their creed, colour and denomination, whatever they arethey just come and say we want God to move in our nation we will see the Kingcome back to the United Kingdom."

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

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

Many worship leaders are also getting excited about joining together for a timeof united day of worship and intercession, including Helen Yousaf, whois 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 isgoing to do after that day.  That's where God commands a blessing inthe unity and the flow from intercession to worship.  It's going to bejust how God intended church to be and it's going to be the most inspiringoccasion."

The National Day of Prayer and Worship is hosted by GDOP London in collaborationwith national organisations, key denominations, the local churches and regionalnetworks.  

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