About Derby Prayershield
Raising a Prayershield in your Area
The Prayershield is the vision of a group of people living in Derby, UK. They have seen how God responds to their prayers to change situations and to bring great blessings into people’s lives. They are committed to raising a shield of prayer over your local area.
Prayershield - The Vision
Christians in Derby, and all over the country, are praying as never before. Our vision is that the prayers of God’s people locally will serve to protect all aspects of life in our community. As people pray, we believe that God will not only protect us from harm, but will also pour out His blessing.
‘I have posted watchmen on your walls’ (Isaiah 62:6)
As we pray, we see through God’s eyes into the distance, and, like the watchmen of old when they stood on the watchtower of the city, we can see threat of trouble approaching and pray for God to change the situation.
Within your area, we are praying for good things to happen under the blessing of God. We desire that the younger generation will inherit a place that is good to live in and that they will be blessed through the life of the community, and, in the future, will inherit all that God has established among us.
When considering the next generation, the Psalmist says that we should:
‘Walk about Zion [the kingdom of God in your area], go round her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation.’ (Psalm 48: 12, 13).
Prayershield - What is it?
Through our monthly bulletins, we are looking for Christians who will register with us and pray regularly for a range of subjects that affect the local area. There is an introduction to the month's subject, and weekly prayer pointers. Our archives help you to carry on praying on the theme after the end of that month.
We also send out occasional urgent prayer requests for Derby, information on events and prayer meetings, and there are links to other prayer resources.
