Aim: At this difficult time for many people in our city, Southampton House of Prayer, in conjunction with Love Southampton, is coordinating prayer support for anyone who would like us to pray.
How it works: As simplicity and speed are essential at this time, we have created a number for Southampton Prayer Line for those who want to send us a text with their prayer requests.
For residents of Southampton: the number can be used to text us prayer requests and we guarantee that we will pray for them. This information can be included (with your permission and after editing to maintain confidentiality) in the daily prayer updates that are broadcast to the prayer group. You are of course welcome to join the group too.
For people offering to pray for others: text “join” to 07960 430 674. After an initial message to confirm your permission, we will send out a daily prayer text with targeted points based on information received from people using the prayer line number. It is intended to limit the number of messages sent.
Zoom Prayer meeting: We also have a zoom call at 9pm each evening to pray for the topic of the day. Find out more here.
The contact number is: 07960 430 674. This can be posted on public forums as a contact point. Text us your prayer request, or if you are wanting to join the prayer group, text “Join”.
The whole church in Southampton is praying: The intention is to have people from across the city and its environs in the group, giving a comprehensive cover of the city’s needs at this time.
