National Prayer Weekend 2017

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…


NPWJoin the nation in prayer - 29 September – 1 October 2017

At the heart of the National Prayer Weekend is the desire to see people in our local communities know and encounter God through the power of prayer. Local people praying for their local neighbourhood can transform the nation. One life, one street, one community at a time.

National Prayer Weekend 2017 – Join In!

The National Prayer Weekend is an opportunity for Christians to show God’s love to those around them in a real and tangible way, as small groups, churches and communities unite in prayer for their local area. The National Prayer Weekend is inspired by CWR’s roots of personal and national transformation through prayer and Bible reading.

The idea is simple. Ask people in your local area whether they would like prayer. Gather prayer requests together and pray for the requests during the National Prayer Weekend 29 September – 1 October 2017.

You can hold your own prayer weekend and pray with your small group or whole church. And you won’t be alone. We’ll be making available free resources to help you plan your weekend, including a How To Guide, which includes useful hints, tips, fun ideas and more.

We believe that local people praying for their community can change lives. Make God’s love known to the people around you. Your street. Your community. Your prayers.
