The UK’s major Christian broadcasters are uniting behind the National Dayof Prayer and Worship taking place at Wembley Stadium September 29, 2012.

GOD TV, Revelation TV, United Christian Broadcasters, Premier Christian Media,OHTV the Christian Broadcasting Council and many others have committedthemselves to get behind this historic gathering at Wembley Stadium, with oneunited aim to mobilise the UK church to pray together for nationaltransformation on September 29th.

“As GOD TV we hope that we can play a major part in supporting andpromoting this National Day of Prayer and Worship.  It’s key thatas the body of Christ we come together to stand as one here across the UKcrying out to the Lord and praising Him believing Him for great thingsacross our land,” said GOD TV UK and Ireland Director FergusScarfe.

He added: “One of things that we are most excited about is that thisgathering will allow all the Christian media ministries from across the UKto play a role in supporting this great event.  There are issues thatdraw us all together and this is a key moment across Great Britain in2012.”

Organisers of the National Day of Prayer and Worship say it will be an historicopportunity for the church of the British Isles from every denomination, stream,and tradition to unite at Wembley Stadium to pray for the transformation of allsectors of society in our nation.

That’s why UCB UK’s Managing Director David L’Herroux, saysthey are partnering with the National Day of Prayer and Worship: “Itwill bring people back together and ensure that we make a statement in ournations that we as Christian are not hiding behind a bush, but we areprepared to stand together and to actually pray for our nations and see amighty move of God.

“UCB wants to partner with this initiative because it’simportant for us to actually make sure that we unite our heart as a mediaorganisation making sure that we support them with everything that weactually have and therefore we are proud to be their mediapartner.”

Premier Christian Media is also fully behind the National Day of Prayer andWorship:

“Praying for each other and for the world goes right to the heart ofthe Christian faith. At Premier we are delighted to support the National Dayof Prayer and Worship at Wembley this Autumn,” said PeterKerridge, Chief Executive of Premier Christian Media.

And many other Christian media outlets are united in their support for Wembley2012.  In the build up to this historic day Revelation TV broadcasts amonthly Prayer Focus programme presented by GDOP London Convener JonathanOloyede.

“What the National Day of Prayer and Worship will do is actually bringus together and create unity.  There is nothing more to stimulate andexcite Christians than coming together in big numbers and having anopportunity of praising the Lord and praying together,” saidRevelation TV trustee and presenter Gordon Pettie.

“Our nation is in a terrible mess and the challenge to us asChristians is to do something about it.  Prayer changes things and ifyou can get 70-80,000 Christians praying together I believe that things willhappen in the heavenlies. Our hope is that an event like this will unite theUK’s Christian media together to this common cause to see the nationchanged.”

OHTV Creative Director Patrick Campbell said:

“The UK has a long history of prayer but somehow it’s got lostin the ebb and flow of modern life, so we saw this as a really powerfullyway of bringing people together to pray and it felt like a good fit for whatwe do as a media organisation that’s dedicated to creatinglife-changing content.

“70-80,000 people praying together with one mind, one vision will beincredibly powerful.”

CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Council Olave Snelling said:

What CBC stands for is lifting up the name of Jesus in themedia.  The National Day of Prayer is such an event where this willhappen and CBC is tremendously supportive of this initiative.

“It’s very encouraging to see so many Christian mediaorganisations who are seeing a Kingdom perspective by coming together topromote this and may it bring great glory to God.”
