The Presbyterian Church of Wales (PCW) is embarksing on its first national week of prayer (20 – 26 May). During this ambitious campaign, there will be a roll out of prayer resources to secondary and primary schools across Wales, including a ‘pray for a minute’ resource. There are activities for young people, resource sessions for children and youth clubs, looking at four specific areas:

  • The world

  • Family

  • God and me

  • A question for God

The prayer pack resources have been sent to all PCW churches and presbyteries, complete with guidelines on how to run a wide range of prayer events in the community.

Revd. Nan Powell-Davies, General Secretary of the PCW said: ‘Prayer is hard work, and we often give up before we’ve really started. The week of prayer is a way of encouraging one another to pray. It also needs to be said that there are many ways of praying and we want to promote a greater variety of prayer across our denomination. The Week of Prayer will provide a great opportunity for the PCW to inspire a new generation of believers to develop healthy habits of prayer that will last a lifetime’.
