In 2016, The Archbishop of Canterbury invited Christians to participate in ten days of prayer for the renewal of the church by a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit, renewal of individuals’ lives in the Spirit and for the evangelisation of our nation to bring human beings back to knowing Jesus Christ. He was not expecting the response, which he expected to be around 50,000, but it rose to millions. He has called us again to pray this year, and it is expected that 100 million Christians around the world will join in. When we spend time seeking the Lord we may be surprised at the results. We have put together daily prayer times in different locations, and hope every Christian will make the effort to go to at least one of the sessions regardless of venues. Each time of prayer will include Bible reading, possibly a hymn, and some resources will be available beforehand for those who have offered to lead part or all of a prayer session. Local dates and times are available here.
