Philadelphia, the cornerstone of our liberty and freedom as a nation, is in great need of spiritual renewal. It has become a city of violent crime! God’s heart is broken over this great city!
The YWAM ministry in Philadelphia, led by Doug & Debbie Tunney, is spear heading a mighty move to take back the streets of the city in cooperation with YWAM Prayer Stations. 60 different corners of the city have been identified as the places where most of the violent crime takes place. God has laid on the hearts of the Tunney’s a vision to equip the inner-city churches of Philadelphia with 100 Prayer Stations.
The project has begun with great success. We have already been able to assist 35 different churches with this proven tool of hope, blessing and evangelism. Prayer Stations is now the preferred evangelism strategy for churches to use in the city. On average 30 people a week are coming to Christ through Prayer Station outreaches. More than 300 people per week are receiving prayer. One large African American church in the city has trained 220 of their people as Prayer Station volunteers and the YWAM ministry is conducting, an average of 3 church training sessions a month.
