The House of Prayer is a network of prayer across Wigan bringing together every individual and group engaged in regular prayer and intercession.
We are currently seeking a physical place – a suitable building in the heart of Wigan – to use as a base for the prayer network.
In June 2017 we were given temporary use of a small house for 40 days of 24/7 prayer. 266 people took part in this and there is a growing movement of people wanting to keep this going by keeping prayer central to all that we are doing to accomplish the vision.
In November 2016 we launched the first Order of Prayer. 24 people committed to a simple WAY OF LIFE and a regular rhythm of prayer and fasting. The aim is to have 100 people in this order by the end of 2017. If you are interested in joining the Order drop us an email and we will put you in touch with the leaders so you can explore it further.
THE WAY OF LIFE FOR THE WIGAN ORDER OF PRAYER
- Pray every day for the people of this town, listening to what the Spirit is saying.
- Give an hour a month to the Order’s 24 hours of prayer.
The Order of Prayer is led by Rev Philip Anderson. Rev Philip comments "It’s interesting that God is calling people from all church traditions to be part of the Order. We may pray differently, but we are all prayer warriors, our hearts and voices caught up in unity by the Holy Spirit as we seek God’s best for Wigan. That’s what is so wonderful about the Order of Prayer: unity in diversity."
