A Patchwork Quilt of Prayer
22/01/2021 - 23/01/2021, All DayOnline
For a number of years, every January, #Pray24Brum has brought together Christians across from across Birmingham and beyond to pray in and for our city. Taking place early in the calendar year and during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, it is an opportunity for Christians of different traditions to witness to our unity as we begin the year by praying together at the heart of Birmingham. The theme for 2021 is ‘Together we bring Hope to the World’.
This year, like everything else, it will have to be very, very different: but we remain convinced that our city needs prayer as much as ever and that by praying together we, as Christians can be a source of great and much needed blessings. So #Pray24Brum is going ahead in a very different format, and we hope you will be a part of it!
#Pray24Brum takes place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd January 2021. There will be no central venue for people to come together to pray but we know that God hears our prayers and intentions wherever we are. So this year, we hope, there will be Christians praying in every corner of our beautiful, challenging city. We are inviting individuals, households, churches and Christian communities to commit, at some point during those 2 days to setting aside 24 minutes to pray in and for our city.
Throughout the 24 hours, at intervals, we will be sharing a number of 24 minute long times of prayer led by different groups and churches in the city, in which you are warmly invited to participate: creating a ‘patchwork quilt of prayer’. Links to all of these will be shared on the Birmingham Churches Together Facebook and Twitter (you don’t need an account to view these, but if you do have an account, please let us know you are joining the prayer with the hashtag #pray24brum).
We will also share a number of resources and suggestions which can be used to guide your prayer, as well as issues and concerns which you may wish to pray about: but we hope you will also bring into your prayers your own specific concerns and those issues which are affecting your own locality.
