After hearing Donald Coggan (1909-2000) say at his enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury, that "whether you're a housewife baking a cake or being crowned as archbishop, it is all for the glory of God." Jessie McFarlane wanted to have a more real Christian life - "Teach me to pray." She begged God continually. Her relationship grew stronger and she began meeting with her sister and a friend as a prayer triplet. There was plenty to pray about in 1981 and soon she was organising an 8 hour long 24 hour prayer clock for a Luis Palau mission in Glasgow. Afterwards the three women continued to pray together, it was the time of the Yorkshire Ripper murders, Belfast was erupting after the death of Bobby Sands, miners were striking, unemployment reached 2.5 million. When they learned that Evelyn Christenson was coming to England they organised a meeting for Evelyn to speak to women interested in prayer, 650 women came and of them 450 agreed to become part of a new a movement, a prayer chain for the nation. This has since developed into an international movement "Prayer Chain Ministries." After the inaugural National Prayer Breakfast in 1984 the ministry has taken on an extra direction as the organisation has gained access to people in government and business.
