24 Hour Prayer for Lent 2021

Click here to sign up for a slot.

24 Hour Prayer will be during the first weekend in Lent with an unbroken chain of 24 hours of prayer running from 12noon on Friday 19th February to 12noon on Saturday 20th Feb. Prayer is a vital part of our preparations for the time of Lent and for Easter, and its great to do this together as a praying community - it helps our sense of unity and commitment to God and to one another, and in this time of worshipping and praying separately, passing on the baton of prayer can help unify us as a church community.

Click the the sign-up link and start thinking now about making time to pray, and ask God how much time He would like to spend with you during 24Hour Prayer, it can often provoke a great response. God wants to talk! 

Check out the prayer resources below including brilliant video clips by people at LCC from a previous Prayer relay.

In addition to the chain of prayer, the following day on Sunday 21st Feb there will be an afternoon of Emmaus walks. We'll start by meeting altogether on zoom at 12:30pm to pray as a group, then walk with a partner friend or household, then later that afternoon meet back again on zoom at 3:30pm to share. You can walk wherever you wish within Coronavirus guidelines, but maybe consider as in the Emmaus Road story in Luke 24:13-35 using the first half of the walk to talk about things of God and praying or worshipping, and the second half to be quietly reflective, listen to the Lord, God wants to talk! The disciples described their experience with the risen Jesus "Weren't our hearts burning within us while He talked with us?"
