OMS and 24-7 Prayer

When the 24-7 Prayer movement began spreading around the world, inspired by Zinzendorf and the Moravians at the start of this century, 24-7 communities quickly began taking root in many countries. They centred on prayer and seeking to make a measurable difference amongst the poor and the lost. They drew their Rule of Life from the original OMS and developed 6 practices to outwork these three vows.
