Nine Days of Prayer
Responding to the Archbishops call to prayer between Ascension and Pentecost, at Christ Church we are planning to do three things to tie in with the hopes for the wave of prayer:
…for all Christians to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ - visit the blog with a new reflection for each of the 9 days, based around the lectionary gospel readings. Online responses to the blog will become a prayer string.
…for all of us to have confidence to share the Gospel – we will make available ‘posada’ boxes which include kits for 9 different multisensory ways to pray for our own confidence in sharing the good news. These boxes can be booked and borrowed for house groups, small groups, households, families and groups of friends to hold a time of prayer during the 9 days, which you could invite others to join.
To book one of the boxes, please contact Annika: firstname.lastname@example.org
…for all to respond to the call of Jesus Christ to follow Him as disciples, to live out the Gospel and to seek God’s Kingdom from day to day – we will meet to pray in 9 different locations around our city over the 9 days to pray specifically for people in those places to hear God calling them to follow him. These will be short, loosely structured gatherings, each facilitated by a leader.
