Prayer Follows Up the Olympics

Tens of thousands of Christians gathered for the National Day of Prayer and Worship on September 29 at Wembley Stadium in London. It was the culmination of six years of stadium and borough prayer events and 24/7 prayer organized by the Global Day of Prayer (GDOP) London.

As crowds were flocking to the Olympic Stadium for the Opening Ceremony of the Games, Global Day of Prayer London trustees were already preparing for this historic prayer gathering to be held nine weeks later. Organizers acknowledged that in the weeks leading up to the event, they had never witnessed such expectation and momentum of unity among all denominations.

“It’s wonderful to think [of] celebrating as one church at Wembley Stadium all that God [has] done during the Olympics and beyond,” says GDOP London Convener Jonathan Oloyede.

Artists helping to lead worship included Noel Robinson, Graham Kendrick, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Guvna B, and the RCCG Mass Choir. In addition to united prayer and worship from all streams in the British Isles, several thousand young people were commissioned toward evangelism, missions, and transformation of their communities.
