Prayer.

Talking to God.

 

We believe that prayer is a vital part of the life of a follower of Jesus. As a church family, we encourage one another to build a habit of regularly talking to God throughout daily life. 

We also believe that praying together is important. 

There's no need to wait for an organised event or meeting to pray with others but we do have a couple of regular large-scale prayer events for everyone to get involved in (see below for details).

We also make space to pray together as part of our Sunday morning meetings and there's Wednesday Morning Prayer (7.30am - 8am) every Wednesday in term-time. A link to join this is emailed out on Tuesdays along with the latest links to book tickets for services. There's also usually a City Group (or several!) who meet weekly to pray together.

 
Week of Prayer.
A week focusing on prayer.
However, wherever, whenever.

Because prayer is important, we set aside three one-week blocks each year to particularly put prayer at the top of the agenda.

Our next Week of Prayer is 16th - 22nd January.

That week we'll be focusing on praying together at all four services. There will also be online and in-person prayer gatherings during the week.

 

Details:

  • Sunday 16th January: praying during the services 

    • "All In": Like last term there will be three all-age interactive prayer slots during the "All In" services, incorporated into the service.

    • During The Evening Service there will be a shorter sermon to allow for a prayer slot where we will be praying for the NHS and healthcare workers.

  • Monday 17th January (online, 7.30pm-8.30pm): Praying for the children, youth, and childrens/youth leaders here at City Church.

  • Tuesday 18th January (online, 7.30pm-8.30pm): Praying into some key City Church prophecies: A new season where we can “Expect the Unexpected"*. 

  • Wednesday 19th January (online, 7.30pm-8.30pm): An evening of Lectio Divina (sacred reading): reading/hearing, contemplating and praying into some key passages of Scripture together.

  • Thursday 20th January: During the Word+Song service our amazing youth will be leading us in praying for schools and education.

  • Friday 21st January (online, 7.30pm-8.15pm): 45 minutes of worship together.

*This was the theme of a word of encouragement shared at The Evening Service on 2nd January.
 

Zoom links will be sent out the preceding week.

Regular prayer updates.
Praying for one another.

There is a prayer requests mailing list, set up at the beginning of the pandemic to facilitate staying informed about people's health in City Church and so praying for them. This list continues to send out occasional emails. 

 

Email dailyprayerupdate@citychurchcambridge.org.uk if you are feeling ill and would like to be included in prayer requests.
