I'm Forever Blowing ... Praise The Lord

On 27 May, Pentecost Sunday, West Ham United football stadium, in Newham, is to be the site of the "Global Day of Prayer". Newham is the most ethnically diverse borough in Britain.

Said Pastor Jonathan Oloyede of Glory House: "We are asking Christians to pray for London, for east London in particular and West Ham football stadium, where the Global Day of Prayer is held this year."

So it's actually a Global Day of Prayer...for London? And for east London? And for the Hammers?

The thousands gathered at Upton Park will also be praying for kids in central Africa who have had the once-over with a machete and maybe even world peace, although press releases have yet to mention anything like that. But we hope they will shortly.
