Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer ‘Make Hope Visible’
I first heard about this project several years ago and have followed its progress with interest and amazement! It will be a Christian architectural sculpture built in Coleshill near Birmingham, in the heart of the UK
A giant infinity loop built of one million bricks reaching 50m into the sky – 2.5 x the height of the Angel of the North.
This will be a piece of public art that provokes a conversation about prayer, giving visitors the space to reflect on the role of prayer in the nation and in their lives. It is about how one person’s answered prayer can become another person’s hope. Every brick will represent a story of how someone has prayed and how God has answered.
Visitors will be able to point their phone at a brick to reveal the story of hope that lies within.
Eternal Wall aims to:
• Preserve the Christian heritage of our nation
• Ignite a faith for prayer on a national level
• Reveal Christ to the nation
The land and planning permission have been obtained; the access road is being built; the interactive app technology is being developed; the engineers and builders are ready to start.
If £2.5m can be raised before 22nd October this year, construction of this incredible landmark can start in spring next year and will be completed in 2023.
All administration costs have been covered so every donation goes directly to building Eternal Wall. Crowdfunding to build runs from 13th September to 22nd October.
On the 15th September I noted that £121,320 had been already donated – just 2 days after the Crowdfunding began. Now thanks to a kind donor offering match funding, every donation for the next £20,000 will be doubled!
I am really excited and hope that some of our church will feel like me - that this is an audacious and amazing project. It will stand as a wonderful, visible symbol of the magnitude and power of prayer and is therefore well worth supporting.
