Pray

“…pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Ephesians 6:18 

We are praying relentlessly. There is so much need for prayer and it can seem overwhelming sometimes. We don’t want that to stop us so we have created a one-stop-shop for praying for others during the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

On this page you will find prayer requests from our community partners, top tips for praying and further resources on prayer. This page will be updated every 2-3 weeks with testimonies and updates as well as new prayer requests.
