‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest.. to send out workers into his harvest field’ Luke 10.2
Praying for HOPE 2014
We are praying that 2014 would be a catalytic year where churches will work together around the Christian calendar, festivals and new mission initiatives to bring good news to our lost and broken nations. Currently there are more than 30 ministry partners working towards HOPE2014: many ministries are producing resources; denominations and dioceses are allocating funds, and churches in villages, towns and cities are making mission plans. But we need a foundation of prayer to undergird this and lead us into all that God has for our nations in this coming year.
Will you join us – starting on 18 October 2013 to 31 January 2014
To launch this year of mission, World Prayer Centre and all the partners of HOPE2014 invite you to pray with Christians around the country using the Prayer for Today Hope Daily Prayers (published by UCB). Use the prayers & themes when you are praying alone, in home groups, as a church, as groups of churches or in Christian organisations. Every Sunday there is a written prayer which can be used in worship services.
Prayer Countdown launch
This Season of Prayer starts on 18th October 2013 at the Excel Centre, London at the Festival of Life night of prayer hosted by Redeemed Christian Church of God where it is expected that 40,000 people will meet to pray – come and join us if you are free!
Each week introduces a new theme enabling us to pray for hope - through the church, for our families & friends, for united mission, for children & young people, for the marginalised, for neighbours & work colleagues, for our communities, for Christmas and for 2014 to be a year of fruitful mission.
