Diocesan Day of Prayer (22-23 October 12 noon to 12 noon)

Date: 22nd October 2021

Time: 12:00pm

The day will start on Friday 22nd October at 12 noon and finish 24 hours later.

Through the ‘Shaping for Mission’ initiative, deaneries are playing a central part in rethinking and reshaping our mission as a diocese. It, therefore, seems appropriate that deaneries should, once again, be central to our day of prayer. We will shortly be contacting rural deans and  lay chairs to ask you to prepare an hour’s session in which to pray for the fulfilment of our diocesan vision in your context.

We hope, in this way, to have a Deanery somewhere in the diocese praying for the whole 24 hours!

Specific groups such as diocesan departments, chaplaincies, schools, fresh expressions, the cathedral and our partners overseas are being invited to choose a 30 minute slot. We would also love to hear from all individuals, local groups and churches, pledging to pray alone, in physical or online groups. See here for more details

We receive your gifts, believe your promises and trust you for the future.
May we cease trying to fix the church and join with you in loving your world.
May we hear your call to fullness of life and share it with others. 
May we be shaped by the Good News of Jesus, the light of the world
And may we seek your kingdom as People of Hope. Amen.
