Happy Birthday 24-7!!
Yesterday was 24-7 Prayer's 8th birthday!
It's hard to believe that it has really been 8 years since the prayer movement was launched from a nightclub in Guilford. Carla Harding sent us all birthday greetings yesterday evening, celebrating the four and half thousand prayer rooms, the 2,922 days, or 70,080 hours, or 4,204,800 minutes of non-stop prayer!
I looked out my window here in East Africa and saw a big pale moon rising. Pete Greig looked up at the night sky in England and saw a pale RED MOON rising. Now, I would have just thought it was Pete's enthusiastic imagination that colored the moon except that Markus in Germany confirmed for us that yes, in fact, there was a lunar eclipse last night. He also noted that it's supposed to be the last total eclipse of the moon seen in Europe for the next 7 years.
If you've read Red Moon Rising, the story of 24-7 Prayer, you'll understand why the red moon on our birthday made us smile.
