Praying for the city of Worcester5 Jan 2020
Prayer diary: Sunday 5 January 2020
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 join the prayer groups; please contact the venues for more information. “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray […] I will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7.14)
