The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited individuals, communities and churches around the world to pray. This year they are particularly inviting prayer for our friends, families and neighbours to come to know Jesus Christ.
Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks and half nights of prayer. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host events.
We invite you to join in this international wave of prayer.
Loving Father, in the face of Jesus Christ
your light and glory have blazed forth.
Send your Holy Spirit that I may share with my friends [Name & Name]
the life of your Son and your love for all.
Strengthen me as a witness to that love
as I pledge to pray for them,
for your name’s sake. AMEN
Almighty God, your ascended Son has
sent us into the world to preach the good news of
your kingdom: inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love, that all
who hear your word may be drawn to you, through
Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
Almighty God who called your Church to witness
that you were in Christ reconciling
the world to yourself:
help us to proclaim the good news of your love,
that all who hear it may be drawn to you;
through him who was lifted up on the cross,
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. AMEN
