World Day of Prayer

Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk

Message from the Chair

So the Day of Prayer is over...

So the Day of Prayer is over. So – does this mean that we can forget all about WDP until we begin preparing for next year? Of course not!

Ours is a 365- (or even 366- ) day movement – and prayer is even more vital than normal at this time. It is one of the most powerful tools we have in the global fight against Covid-19.

One of our branches has come up with a wonderful idea: a way for us all to unite in prayer at this time. You can find out more on the News page. We shall be putting ideas and prayers on our website every week and also on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. #PRAYWITHOUTCEASINGWDP

Please continue to pray for the people of Zimbabwe. As I write, Covid-19 has apparently not reached them yet – but it undoubtedly will and will be yet another burden for them to bear. Please pray too for our Prayer Partners in Albania: even at the best of times, Albania is a poor country.  It is still struggling from the effects of the earthquake in November last year.   We are told that rebuilding has not yet started and many families are still living in tents.

The National Committee is continuing to work on preparations for next year and the year after. Please use your Prayer Diaries as you continue to pray for us. #PRAYWITHOUTCEASINGWDP

May God be with us all

Elizabeth

Chairperson, National Committee for England, Wales & Northern Ireland

Y-Pray? 2020: we are sorry to announce that this conference has been cancelled. Y-Pray? 2021 will take place at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, South Derbyshire from Friday 30 April to Sunday 2 May. Book early for a discount.

Following the National call to pray, let us light a candle of hope to penetrate the dark corners of the world. During this crisis that is affecting the world, our hearts go out to our friends in Albania who are in almost complete isolation. Going out is restricted to one person per family to buy food supplies and medicines between 05.00 and 13.00 hrs. Many families are suffering without food, medicines and jobs. Failing healthcare systems and hospitals are unable to cope with increasing needs.
Work on rebuilding damaged homes following the recent earthquake has not even started and many people are still living in tents. Jesus, Light of the World, bring healing, bring hope..
