Intercessors for Britain’s Great Day of Prayer, 17 June, Regent’s Hall, London. Report by IFB Director David Borlase

We gathered again, around 250 of us throughout the day, for our annual Great Day of Prayer one year on from an amazing event the Saturday before the EU referendum, when God so mightily answered our prayers. 

This year we particularly focused on Islam, after so many terror attacks in recent months.

Tim Dieppe, the Islam expert from Christian Concern, brought to light the very real challenges we face and yet are ignoring. As Director of Intercessors for Britain, I spoke on the Church’s response to Islam, examining the need for the Church to wake up and pray.

Ray Borlase spoke on the challenges ahead, in the light of Brexit, the election result and issues in the Church.

We had great times of worship and powerful times of prayer, for Islam, Brexit, the Government and the aftermath of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire. When praying about the situation following the fire, we called upon God for restraint and peace, with regard to the day of rage being called for, and a change of tone in the media coverage. We felt God answered with the very low turnout for the ‘day of rage’ and no consequent trouble; indeed, many churches made it a day of prayer and the media seemed to adopt a calmer tone.

On 21 October we gather again at Regents Hall, Oxford Street for a day of Prayer about Abortion, as it is the Saturday before the 50th Anniversary of the passing of the Abortion Act – see our advert on page 13.
