THY KINGDOM COME – 36 HOUR PRAYER
We are having a 36-hr continuous prayer chain (like our usual prayer rooms, only in your homes) from 11am Sunday 24th May – 11pm Monday 25th May (Bank Holiday). Sign up for your hour below. We would really like all participants to write just one (or a couple of) word/s on a piece of A4 about what God has said to you in that hour, and take a photgraph of the paper. At the end of the time together, we’ll put together a short picture collage/video of what God has been speaking to us about – it doesn’t matter if the same words come up multiple times and you don’t have to show your face on the photograph if you’d rather not, just the paper.
Here’s the sign-up link for the 36 hour of prayer:
THY KINGDOM COME – ART
For the artists (of any type!), don’t forget to get your pieces ready for this: https://cskholyweekart.wordpress.com/2020/04/02/info-and-daily-categories/ let’s make a beautiful record of our time at-home-but-together on our online art gallery.
THY KINGDOM COME – PEBBLES PRAYER CHAIN
The first pebble in the chain says “We prayed for ….” Your pebble could have a picture on it or a word or words, something representing whatever you have prayed for, so that we can continue to pray or reflect on what you have prayed about. (See attached PDF for examples). Use felt pens or acrylic paint or whatever you have at home. To protect your pebble so it doesn’t fade, you could cover it with clear nail varnish or a layer of PVA glue. Alternatively, or in addition, you could tie a piece of fabric to the railing outside CSK to represent your prayer. You may even want to add a word to your material using fabric pen or felt tip. Add your pebble or fabric next time you’re out for a walk as you pass by the church. We will put the first pebbles out to start the chain on Wednesday.
THY KINGDOM COME – LORD’S PRAYER DAILY AT NOON
We encourage everyone from Thursday the 21st May to Saturday the 30th May inclusive to stop at Noon and pray the Lord’s prayer. Additionally, we are inviting people to type prayer requests from Noon to 12:15 on our daily Facebook post or direct message us, and one of the staff team will be on line for those 15 minutes each day to respond instantly to any requests.
Have a blessed week
