Wales Awake!

Wales Awake is lead by Dudley Griffiths, supported by his wife Ann, and they are based in Swansea, South Wales, UK.   Dudley first sensed God calling him back to Wales in the late eighties having left the country for East Kent (England) in his early teens.  He received the vision of a revival prayer network for Wales (Wales Awake) in 1991, and in 1992 gave up formalemployment in the Health Service to move to Bridgend.

Wales Awake started in 1994, with revival prayer groups being set up in Bridgend and nearby villages. With the support of  local church leaders, 24 interdenominational prayer groups were established in South and Mid Wales, usually meeting monthly  in homes, with the aim of praying for the locality and for Wales.

In April 2007, after 13 years of co-ordinating groups, Dudley decided to lay down Wales Awake as an organised network, and sought the Lord for fresh guidance. His desire to see  revival remained with him, however, and in early 2008 he sensed God was wanting him to co-ordinate prayer gatherings at key locations throughout Wales. The emphasis was now going to be on prophetic intercession and declaration (Wales Awake!) rather than on an organised network of prayer groups.

The first gathering was on 21st June 2008, when a group met together at the official mid-point of Wales, near Cwmystwyth.r
