The iconic ‘eternal’ arch infinity structure will be constructed near Birmingham in the UK using one million bricks with each representing individual prayers that have been answered for people around the world. In addition, using interactive technology and a bespoke app, visitors will be able to use their smart device, holding it against any brick to read the individual answered prayers and the personal stories behind them.
“..to build a crowd-created piece of public art, that will make hope visible.”
“The idea behind Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer has always been to build a crowd-created piece of public art, that will make hope visible. We’re not building this landmark to have something nice to look at, we’re building a community-focused structure that carries a legacy; generations in hundreds of years’ time will see it and be inspired. Every penny donated through this Crowdfunder will go directly into building the Eternal Wall and create a people-driven place of hope.” shares Richard.
Australians are being asked to submit their stories (written, audio or video) where God has answered their prayers in a significant way, to be included in the wall.
