Prayer for the Nation
We call upon the Church of England to make November 2020 a month of prayer for our nation. We know that we are in the faithful hands of the risen Christ who knows our weaknesses, tiredness and struggles and whose steadfast love endures forever. On Wednesday 4 November, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Bishop of London called the Church of England to prayer for the nation throughout the month of November.
Daily Prayers at 6pm
As a second lockdown in England comes into force, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting Christians across the nation to participate in a month of prayer. Christians are encouraged to pray daily for a specific area of national concern, wherever they are, culminating in a collective moment of prayer at 6pm each evening. We are calling Christians in the diocese of London to pray on your doorstep for your neighbourhood, and also for the National prayer points:
Sunday – Family, friends and loved ones
Monday – Schools and colleges, children and young people
Tuesday – Elderly, isolated and vulnerable
Wednesday – Businesses, the workplace and economic wellbeing
Thursday – The NHS and other key workers
Friday – National and local governments
Saturday – All who are grieving and all suffering with physical and mental ill-health
Cathedrals and churches across the country invited to ring a bell at this time. Prayers and other resources will be shared on social media with the hashtag #PrayerForTheNation.
