CHRISTIANS are set to gather in a ‘flashmob’ in Portsmouth city centre to pray for the country.

The ‘7.14 prayer meeting’ will take place in Guildhall Square at 7.14pm tomorrow.

A similar event has been scheduled for Petersfield town centre at the same time.

Both have been organised through social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.

The 7.14 events – so called after chapter seven, verse 14 of Chronicles - will be held in 48 cities across the globe at 7.14pm. Christians are being urged to pray for their home town and cities as well as the country.

Adam Roseblade, a student pastor at the Kings Church, in Elm Grove, Southsea, said: ‘This event is not about making any kind of political statement.

‘It is simply way for us to show that we care, and to support leaders in our nation by asking God for great wisdom and insight in these challenging days.’
