The words of 'The Vision' were written late one night on the wall of the first ever 24-7 Prayer Room. It wasn't a big deal, says Pete Greig, ... just a very personal thing - trying to work out the call on my life and why I was awake at 0300 praying when sane people are all tucked up in bed! But somehow the words of The Vision escaped that Prayer Room! They must have been copied off the wall by someone and sent as an email to a friend. Pete recalls: I didn't realise any of this until someone in Canada emailed my own poem to me saying they had come across it and thought I might like it!
Before long The Vision was being printed in magazines, remixed by DJ's in New York and Sweden and even choreographed in Spain! In August 2001 The Vision was published in a magazine called 'The Way' which circulates a staggering 100,000 underground churches in China. The very same week the words were quoted by 10,000's of American young people at an event called 'The Call' in Washington DC. Somehow the words scrawled on a Prayer Room wall had taken on a life of their own. The Vision had become a personal mission-statement for many - a generational call to arms. http://www.24-7prayer.com
