#Pray24Brum 2021 – A Patchwork Quilt of Prayer

Together we Bring Hope to our World

This year’s #pray24brum will be different to any of those which have come before it, and (we hope at least!) from any which are still to come.

One thing remains unchanged: it is an opportunity for all those who call ourselves Christian: across our different backgrounds, traditions, practices and expressions of faith to come together, united in praying in and for our city with all of its beauty and all of its challenges.

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 (LINK) and Twitter Feed (LINK). You can see a schedule of the event, which is now more or less fixed but remains subject to last minute changes, below. 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.

And / or 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.
