According to official figures, 50,000 people were prayed for at the Prayer Stations until September 2002. Some people even come from various States in America to New York to become part of this unique ministry. Also, many countries have adopted the ministry such as the Philippines, India, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Singapore, Niger, Russia, Kenya and throughout Central and South America.
At the “Prayer Station”, there will be portable chairs, a table and a red banner which says “Prayer Stations”. People will promote the prayer stations by handing out leaflets, and people in the booths will pray for the ones who stop and ask for a prayer.
“We will be going to London representing the people of NYC to say thank you for all the support we received from Londoners during the time of 9/11,” said Nick Savoca, the leader of YWAM Metro New York, who initiated these “Prayer Stations”.
The New Yorkers, who have gone through the tragic terrorist attacks in 2001, probably have the same heart with London. With the warmest regards, the YWAM New York volunteers come to London to start the prayer initiative for the weary souls. From 7th to 14th August, the volunteers will spend four hours each day at each of the three underground stations.
Churches in London and YWAM London will continue with the “Prayer Stations” after the departure of the YWAM New York volunteers.
“By and large we do expect a warm reception [in London]. I think London will respond much like New Yorkers did,” Savoca added.
