The Methodist Church is encouraging churches and individuals to focus on prayer over the coming months. Pray Without Ceasing is an initiative of the Church’s young people, who have called on the whole church to promote a year of non-stop prayer.
The aims of Pray Without Ceasing are
To encourage continuous prayer
To affirm prayer that is already happening
To open new channels of prayer and encourage people to try out new approaches to prayer
To be inclusive – of age, gender, culture, theology…..etc
A programme of continuous prayer was launched at the Methodist Conference at the end of June 2005 and will run until the end of August 2006. Methodist Districts (33 in Great Britain) are being encouraged to organise continuous prayer events for a week or fortnight within that 14-month period.
As well as this Prayer-Rota, we hope that people will organise local prayer events all year.
Resources are available here for those who want to be inspired to pray – perhaps in new ways, perhaps more frequently, perhaps for the very first time.
This web site will be developed over the coming months, to include:
Information about events and conferences that you can get involved with
