She shares what it was like to set up a prayer tent in the middle of the 17 October Revolution, the devastating impact of the 2020 explosion in Beirut, and how talking about God on social media is changing minds and hearts in her nation.

    England: “Go where your best prayers take you” 

    How does prayer transform a community? In this episode of the 24-7 Prayer Podcast, Hannah and Brian hear from Charl, who helps to lead a small church with a big impact. She tells the story of how a group of parents praying and making toast led to an after-school café and prayer space where young people ask their questions, meet with God, and even see miraculous answers to their prayers. Prayer and mission can feel separate – Charl’s a self-proclaimed ‘mission person’ eager to see God rescue people and transform their lives – but she’s discovered prayer as the fuel of her life and her community. She shares about the rhythms of community prayer that keep her going through all seasons.

    What role could a new monastic order play in the church today?  Brian and Hannah talk to Jill Weber, the Global Convener of the Order of the Mustard Seed (OMS), as she describes her ‘Great Experiment’ - can ancient monastic practices help us to follow Jesus today?

    South Africa: Church of Caged Lions 

    Is the church in the West asleep? Brian and Hannah are joined by Pete Portal, who lives with his family in Manenberg, a township in South Africa. Pete and his wife share their lives with young men coming out of addiction and gang violence, and they’ve seen God do incredible things in their community. Pete talks about how to grieve well in a context full of loss, violence, and injustice, and how Jesus enables impossible hope. He describes how a life in ministry has confronted him with how drastically God’s idea of success is different from the world’s. How has a worldly idea of success crept into the goals of the church? And what’s the solution?
