#Pray24Brum is back: 22nd/23rd January 2021

Every January for the last few years, #Pray24Brum has brought together Christians in Birmingham and beyond to pray for our city. Taking place early in the calendar year and during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, #Pray24Brum provides an opportunity for Christians of different traditions to witness to our unity as we pray together for Birmingham.

#Pray24Brum takes place from 8.00am to 8.00pm on Friday 22nd January and from 8.00am to 8.00pm on Saturday 23rd January 2021. This year, things will necessarily look very different to previous years. Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, there will be no central venue in which people can gather for prayer. Instead, #Pray24Brum is inviting individuals, households, congregations and Christian communities to set aside 24 minutes during the 24 hours to pray for Birmingham.

At intervals during the 24 hours of prayer, we will be sharing on the Birmingham Churches Together FACEBOOK PAGE and TWITTER ACCOUNT links to 24-minute-long times of prayer led by different groups and churches in the city, in which you are warmly invited to participate. We are still open to churches or groups in the city who would like to lead one of the 24-minute prayer sessions, or contribute resources to help people pray. Please contact Stephanie at THIS ADDRESS with offers of help. We will also share a number of resources and suggestions which can be used to guide your prayer, as well as issues and concerns which you may wish to pray about. In addition, we hope you will also bring your own specific concerns and those issues which are affecting your own locality into your prayers.

We invite everyone taking part in the event to use the hashtag #Pray24Brum to share how, where and for what they are praying. This will help to generate a community united in prayer across every corner of Birmingham. Please do share your own prayers to the hashtag to inspire others, and follow it in order to be inspired by others. These are not easy times for anyone, so whatever, wherever and however you are praying for the communities and concerns of the city, thank you!
