Light a Candle of Hope

A national call to prayer, Sunday 22nd March 2020 at 7pm

Place a lighted candle in your window at 7pm this Sunday, and join with hundreds, maybe thousands of others in praying together in these strange and challenging times. These candles are a symbol that the light and love of Christ shines in the darkness and can never be extinguished.

The following has been published by Thy Kingdom Come, a prayer initiative within the Church of England.

A National Day of Prayer and Action has been announced by the presidents of Churches Together in England, re. the Coronavirus epidemic, for this Sunday 22nd March.
In an excerpt from a joint letter issued today, they wrote:
  “At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.
Therefore, at 7pm (GMT) this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.”

Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to join with us in prayer to see an end to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Let us pray for one another during this difficult time.
  “Cast all your cares on to Him, for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7
