Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Email me your news. I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

What is 24 7 Prayer? Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Hi Jean Robb here. I truly believe in the power of prayer.  All the charities I'm involved with have story after story of people with answered prayers. I know I've had people placed in my life that I feel are answered prayers and hope that I've been an answered prayer to others. The power of prayer is not the result of the person praying. Rather, the power resides in the God who is being prayed to. 1 John 5:14-15 tells us, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him." No matter the person praying, the passion behind the prayer, or the purpose of the prayer - God answers prayers that are in agreement with His will. His answers are not always yes, but are always in our best interest. When our desires line up with His will, we will come to understand that in time. When we pray passionately and purposefully, according to God's will, God responds powerfully! 

What is 24-7 Prayer?

24-7 Prayer is an international, interdenominational movement of prayer, mission and justice that began with a single, student-led prayer vigil in Chichester, England in 1999 and has spread, by word-of-mouth, into 100+ nations.
For more than a decade the global 24-7 Prayer meeting has continued unbroken, impacting locations as diverse as the US Naval Academy, a German punk festival, war-zones and underground churches, the slums of Delhi, the jungles of Papua New Guinea, ancient English cathedrals and even a brewery in Missouri.
Along the way, this unusual prayer meeting has given rise to numerous new initiatives, communities and ministries particularly focusing on the poor, the marginalised, students and those outside the reach of normal expressions of church.
Thanks to an innovative approach to spirituality and culture, 24-7 Prayer has also captured the attention of newspapers and magazines from Rolling Stone to Readers Digest, and was the subject of a British television documentary.
I believe, as a 59 year-old woman, sitting in this prayer room, that if these young people are the next generation, our world is in safe hands. Liz, UK

At this very moment someone, somewhere is praying; maybe through word, thought, flowing through a pen or painted on a wall, they're speaking to their creator. In 24-7 Prayer Rooms in any number of countries, from different streams of the Church, Christians are learning to pray by praying.
The first night and day 24-7 Prayer Room started by accident in September '99. A small group of English youth took on the extreme challenge of praying non-stop for a month. They broke days into hour slots, filled a room with creative inspiration and expected to fail after a week... God turned up and they couldn't stop 'til Christmas! A passion for God's presence, a rise in faith and answers to prayer brought new life to their Church.
A Global Wave of Prayer
From that one scruffy, smelly, holy room the idea and hunger for prayer has spread across the globe. The virus of 24-7 Prayer has multiplied into thousands of Prayer Rooms in over 100 nations. Space has been made in schools, police stations, prisons, shops, festivals, naval academies, caravans, homes and often in churches themselves. It's hard to keep track as Prayer Rooms have spread through word of mouth, virally across the internet and through the book Red Moon Rising by Pete Greig. Thousands of non-stop prayer meetings are now linked via this web site to form a unique chain of unbroken prayer.

The aim of 24-7 Prayer is Reconciliation

The 24-7 movement seeks to prioritize Christ's two greatest commandments: to love God with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:30). We pray and work for reconciliation at three levels: spiritually - where there is broken relationship with God, socially - where there is broken relationship between people, and environmentally - where there is broken relationship with our world. 24-7 Prayer exists, therefore, 'to reconcile the world to God through Jesus Christ'. We seek to do this by mobilising the Church in prayer, mission and justice.
For Christ's love compels us because... God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation... We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5

How does 24-7 Prayer work in practice?

Last night, as you slept someone, somewhere was praying 24-7. In fact, right now, as you read these words, people are interceding in scores of locations around the world. This has been continuing every minute of every hour of every day since 1999. Participating groups simply find a venue in which to establish a night-and-day prayer vigil by splitting each day into one-hour shifts, thus filling anything from a weekend to many years with an unbroken chorus of prayer and worship. Keeping rules to a minimum, we simply encourage groups to make their place of prayer as creative and accessible as possible, and to particularly focus on young people and the emerging culture.
Many of these 'sacred spaces' link up here on the web, forming a unique chain of interconnected, global intercession. You can view some of the groups praying right now.

Why 24-7 Prayer?

24-7 Prayer rooms have marked many of the greatest epochs in the growth of the Christian faith:
  • The church was born in a 24-7 prayer room in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, and it was said of them 'they all joined together constantly in prayer' (Acts 1:14)
  • Early Christianity was incubated by the monsatic prayer centers of the Desert Fathers, the Celtic communities of Northern Europe, and eventually the Benedictine and other orders.
  • In the 18th century a Moravian community, under the leadership of Count Zinzendorf, prayed night-and-day for more than a hundred years, thereby launching the great missionary thrust of the Reformation. One of their converts was John Wesley, founder of Methodism.
  • In the 20th century a multi-racial 24-7 prayer room in Los Angeles sparked the Pentecostal and charismatic movements bringing spiritual renewal to nearly 500 million people today.

At the heart of the 24-7 movement there is an expanding network of missional communities inspired by ancient Celtic monasticism and committed to celebrating Christ-centered lifestyles of prayer, mission and justice. These communities are generically known as 'Boiler Rooms' but can have all sorts of local names including 'Houses of Prayer'. The six core practices of all 24-7 communities are: creativity and prayer, hospitality and mercy, learning and mission.
The restoration of the church will surely come from a sort of new monasticism which has in common with the old only the uncompromising attitude of a life lived according to the Sermon on the Mount. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jan 14, 1935

Frequently Asked Questions

Just 24-7

What is Just 24-7?

Just 24-7 right now is simply a collection of friends seeking to help our movement get hold of issues of social justice.
Our primary drive is prayer - what part can prayer play in the transformation of our world? How can we fuel prayer? What is it God wants to say to us?
These pages seek to help you pray, and to connect with others around the 24-7 family who are looking to do the same.

"For I call you... find the Sons of Thunder. I call you to find those who will marry social justice with prayer......I am going to open a unique arm of this ministry that is a different place than you’ve known; it’s going to be a mantle of social justice. That which William Booth had, I give it to you this night."(Cindy Jacobs to Pete Greig, Phoenix Arizona 20th June 2008)
These words, shared at our ‘Home’ gathering in Southampton in 2008, didn’t surprise us. The concept of marrying prayer and social justice isn't new for 24-7 - Justice and Mercy always been part of our movement, in our prayers in prayer room, and into practical action in our communities.

Why Justice?

The opportunities are immense and very exciting, but before we dove into a flurry of activity and prayer we had to learn just what ‘justice’ meant. You see, the justice that we talk about is not the justice God talks about and that shapes everything we do from hereon in.
The most common word he uses in the bible for justice is the Hebrew word Tzedek (or Zedekah). This has a far broader meaning, combining justice with righteousness in one single word & our translations regularly group justice with righteousness and also with mercy & grace. Jesus puts them together too in his very first public speech, the Sermon on the Mount.
