Praying hands DAYS OF PRAYER: Prayer is an essential focus of Christian life and something we do regularly. Throughout the Parish, during 2017, we will be making prayer even more of a focus.
As part of this, through the year, we will be designating various months as ’Days of Prayer’ for specific issues, such as the local community, world mission, etc.
(No Days of Prayer for September).
A Prayer Diary is available at all the Churches in the Parish. Please feel free to take one home and use in your daily prayer life.
We also encourage those who lead Prayers during our Sunday and Mid-Week Services to use these diaries as well, which will suggest a different focus for prayer each day.
We hope you will be able, in whatever way, to take part positively in our Parishes focus on prayer for 2017.
