Stay and Pray

COVID-19 has meant a lot of change. It is important now that we stay at home, to protect ourselves and others.

However, as we stay in our houses, it is easy for our horizons to narrow. There is a temptation for us to be distant from some of the wider issues faced by those around the world. Yet, more than ever, it is important that we lift our eyes beyond our own immediate situations, making sure that as we retreat to our homes, our prayer life doesn't retreat inwardly too.

This is why at JPIT we want to invite you to join us in praying for a different justice issue every day. Each day we will be pointing you towards different issues, local, national and global, that we want to invite you to pray for.

Why not build this prayer into your daily activities?

  • Maybe you want to pray for 20-30 seconds every time you wash your hands?
  • Maybe you could pray every time you are waiting your kettle to boil?
  • Or maybe even every time you find yourselves scrolling through the news or social media?

We want to encourage you to find a rhythm of prayer that works for you.
