#Pray24Brum 2021

Pray24Brum – Week of Prayer for Christian Unity#pray24Brum logo 24 hours of prayer 22-23 January 2021, 8am-8pm

This Friday and Saturday is #pray24brum. It is all a bit different this year. Most of the content will be online but we are also emphasising an invitation for individuals / households / churches to simply set aside 24 minutes at some point during the two days for personal prayer to pray for the city.

It is an invitation to pray for whatever communities and concerns someone has, in whatever way or style suits them: and an invitation to know they are united in prayer with others across the city, across many different traditions.

This year there are two main ways to participate:

  • throughout Friday and Saturday, you are invited to join with prayers being lead online. All the videos or links will be shared on Birmingham Churches Together’s Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/BirmCTogether) and Twitter Feed (https://twitter.com/BirmCTogether).
  • you are invited to set aside 24 minutes (or even 24 seconds!) to pray in and for the city in whatever way suits your own personal style of prayer. Use words, or sit in silence; go for a walk in your local area praying for those you pass or sing praise to God from the privacy of your shower! If you wish, use the hashtag #pray24brum on your social media feeds to share when, where, how and for what you are praying and join a community united, albeit virtually, in creating a patchwork quilt of prayer to cover our city.

The event’s schedule is below, subject to last minute changes. Birmingham St Philip’s Cathedral, the first ever hosts of the event, will launch this year’s with morning prayer at 7.40am on Friday. We are delighted that many of our church leaders from different traditions have joined in prayer and invite you to pray with them at 10am each morning.
