App is prompting prayer move

Around the UK prayer walking is on the rise and the OIKOS app is equipping local groups to get involved. Sammy Jordan (inset, above) explains how.

“We’re seeing a move of God linked to prayer,” says Sammy Jordan. “The Lord is stirring people to pray around the UK.”

Sammy, director of Hope Together’s Hope For Every Home, is excited about the rising levels of local prayer she is seeing through her role heading up the organisation’s OIKOS app.

OIKOS, she explains, is a tool that has been designed to help mobilise Christians to gather to pray for and in communities.

“It’s an app that helps you pin streets and places where you’ve prayed or had conversations that involved faith,” she says.

In order to develop it, a big focus over the past couple of years – and indeed for the year ahead – has been forming partnerships that help people to pray.

“OIKOS’ vision is linked to a strategy of ‘prayer, care and share’, where you begin by praying for a place then are intentional about relationships, acts of care and conversations.

"But there are other Christian organisations which are better placed to help with some aspects of that journey and if we work together the impact can be massive,” she says.
