National Day of Prayer

As part of Together We Pray, we are encouraging you to gather together – in small groups, churches and presbyteries – for a National Day of Prayer on 3 November 2018.

Resources

Resources for the day are now available to download from the Resource section.

Planning an event

If you are planning an event, it may be helpful to consider a few questions:

  • What are we praying for?
  • How shall we pray together?
  • What makes me want to pray?
  • What barriers stop me praying?
  • What can I be listening for/looking for?

Below are a few suggestions on how you might prepare and some resources you might find helpful.

  • Could Together We Pray be linked to something you are already doing?
  • Think about hosting a prayer breakfast, lunch or dinner
  • How might your prayer gatherings be accessible to people of all ages and stages?
  • Could you set up prayer stations to include arts and crafts, movement or lighting candles?
  • How will your event be informed by issues in the wider community? Might you invite people from the community to help shape your prayers?
  • Why not head out to the local community on a prayer walk?
  • You may feel it is important to include elements of confession as part of your day of prayer. How might you create a space for this to happen?
