Praying for the city of Worcester3 Dec 2019 By Laura Farmer
Could you help to pray for Worcester?
Each Saturday between 10pm and midnight, a small ecumenical group meets at the Salvation Army Hall in Worcester to pray for the city and especially the Street Pastors who are out around the town.
Another united prayer group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at City Church (Lindisfarne House, Barbourne, Worcester), to pray for numerous topics, cities and nations. Each session begins with worship, before moving into the specific time of prayer and reflection. Often, the group will also share prayers for initiatives planned to take place in the city.
Sue Gillgan, founder of the groups, said: “Praying with people from different churches is especially powerful. We lay down our differences and seek God together to hear His heart and release His prayers for our city. Gathering together to pray is a great way to help bring unity.”
All are welcome to go along and join the prayer groups.
