About National Prayer Weekend

The idea is simple. Inspired by CWR’s roots of personal and national transformation through prayer and Bible reading, the National Prayer Weekend is an opportunity for Christians to unite churches and communities in prayer for their local area.

Working with churches and organisations all over the country, including Hope, 24-7 Prayer, Neighbourhood Prayer Network, Evangelical Alliance and Gather, we are asking individuals, groups and churches to pray for their communities. To gather prayer requests from the people around you in your local area and introduce them to a God who loves them through the power of prayer. We want to bring Christians together to unite communities across the world in prayer for their local area.

Resource of the Month: Living on a Prayer


Living on a Prayer booklet

What is prayer really all about?

 

Written especially for the National Prayer Weekend, by Carla Harding with Pete Greig from 24-7 Prayer, this little booklet offers a contemporary and honest look at how effective prayer can be in a person’s everyday life.

Living on a Prayer addresses the questions Why pray? and How can I pray? It invites people to think about prayer in a way that relates to everyone’s ordinary lives, to think about the point of prayer, why they should pray and how to go about it.

This is an excellent resource for you, your small group or your whole church to give out to friends and neighbours to help them discover what prayer really is, providing an introduction to prayer and praying and a focus for thoughtful reflection and discussion.

‘God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20)’

Living on a Prayer is available in individual packs of 10, or discounted with bulk box orders.

 

Also available: Why Pray?
Why Pray? is an easy-to-read booklet looking at the most famous prayer in the world, The Lord’s Prayer, trying to answer some of the most burning questions about prayer, including why we pray and who is listening. Find out more…

You can make a difference in their lives as you pray for them!

You won’t be alone. We’re inviting churches, groups and individuals from across the country to engage with their communities in prayer, asking for prayer requests from individuals, organisations and institutions in order to transform their lives through personalised prayer on this special weekend in September.
