The United Kingdom
Prayer Movement was a vision birthed in the heart of Pastor Frank
Mwiko from Zambia, who felt called to the U.K. to set up Prayer
Conferences across the land establishing an annual Prayer Conference
in each County. God has called and gathered a group of people
to facilitate the vision.

In 2007, Pastor Frank
Mwiko, who is from Zambia, and pastored a church in Doncaster
felt lead to establish the UNITED KINGDOM PRAYER MOVEMENT based
on the scriptures from 2 Chronicles 7:14 ''If My people who are
called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek
My face and turn from their wicked way; then I will hear from
heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land''
This Vision was to pray for the United Kingdom County by County.
He was convinced that this vision was from God.
In the year 2008 a group of leaders, whose hearts' God had touched
concerning the need for prayer for the nation, formed to spearhead
the Vision. The leadership
comprised of Church leaders from different church denominations
and Christian organisations and towns, whose faith was in Jesus
Christ as Lord and Saviour
and who believed that the Bible was the inspired Word of God.
They all felt God was leading them to establish Prayer Conferences
in all the counties of the United Kingdom. The vision involved
mobilising the believers in Christ Jesus for the sake of praying
for United Kingdom County by County once every year at a chosen
venue, especiallyin University campuses until Jesus Christ comes.
The first conference was the Yorkshire Prayer Conference which
took place in York at the York University on 15th August 2009-
this has continued as an annual event. In 2010 Lancashire Prayer
Conference was started and the chosen venue was the Cumbria University.
This prayer conference has also continued at the same venue. Currently
the National Board is praying and working on establishing prayer
conferences in Lincolnshire and Durham. This shall continue until
all the counties in United kingdom are covered with prayer.
We encourage the
gathering of all who want to pray for the nation by helping
to support a team who can link to the vision of hosting a
county wide prayer gathering at a University within the respective
The National Executive Board of volunteers gives encouragement
and support in establishing a County wide Prayer Conference.
Partner churches with the vision are given a link on our website
Leaders and Administrators from each county gather for Praise
and Prayer half-yearly.
