The Tower of Prayer officially started on 14 August 2017. It is a continuous prayer chain that came about as a result of several members of City Gates Church, Ilford being inspired by God to pray.
We started to pray in June for the healing of one of the members of our church and as we continued, we felt the God’s leading not to stop but to continue praying for the healing of our nation, the United Kingdom.
To stand watch in unity and prayer as soldiers for Christ; to see His Kingdom come and to push back the darkness.
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.’ Isaiah 62:6-7 NIV
For those who are unsaved to come to know Christ
“Then he said to the disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”” Matthew 9:37-38 NIV
For the Church to take back what has been lost
“”You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:13-14 NIV
For the healing of our land and for every agenda of the enemy against the body of Christ to be aborted
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
Our hearts’ cry is to see this tower of prayer replicated all across our nation. We want to see His kingdom come as the body of Christ stands together in unity and in prayer for our nation.

Praying is good for the soul – praying for the nation as a whole,
Lord open our ears to hear your word
Open our eyes to hear the voice of people crying
Silently, waiting for God to take action
Lord – listen to our voice, only you know the truth
Heal our land – forgive the youth
Help the parents live a life of godliness
Being an example, yes a witness
We are all a child of God, thinking and thanking
Him for His word – despising the shame
Moving on in His Name
Yeshua – Name above all names
I constantly hear, “Now, more than ever, we need prayer”. I think every generation , in fact every decade we feel that things are worse than they’ve ever been and so far from what the Lord wants that all mankind should finally feel compelled to bow the knee and beseech the Lord to intervene.
My opinion is, in trial we need earnest prayer, in triumph we need earnest prayer, in tribulation and hopelessness we need unending prayer and in revival we need unending prayer.
Prayer in whatever form it takes is surrendering our hope and dreams our wants and cares to the Lord. Giving Him the reigns – that His good and perfect will be done.
We need unending prayer for this nation. We want to lay down all matters concerning this nation and the people in it, lost and saved and ask the Lord for a special intervention . We can not leave any matters to chance, or worse still, to any other authority – but to Him, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
We need a Tower of Prayer for continuous fervent prayer. Not just this one but everywhere.
