Rural Deanery 24/7 Prayer 2018

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful Colossians 4:2

This was the final encouragement to the church in Colosse from the Apostle Paul and even a cursory reading of the Gospels couldn’t leave anyone in doubt of how vital prayer was to Jesus.  Prayer is central to our faith and yet if we’re honest many of us don’t find it easy or get side-lined in the process.   Many Christians have found the use of ‘Prayer Rooms’ a great inspiration and help.

As a Rural Deanery we have decided to hold a week of continuous prayer starting on Monday 14th May until Saturday 19th May with many of the Parishes having a specific room for prayer.   In each Prayer Room there will be paper and pens to note any particular thoughts when praying.

This week is culminating on Pentecost Sunday 20th May, with a Celebration Service in St Patricks Church, Jordanstown at 6.30 pm.
