National Week of Prayer 5 - 11th June 2010

The seventh annual Week of Prayer for Parliament & Government is taking place this week from Saturday 5th to Friday 11th June 2010. Supported by Bible Society and 24-7 Prayer, this important event is a partnership between Christians in Parliament and Christians in Government (UK). Driven by the Christian communities that work in politics and government, it will involve daily prayer walks around Parliament and Whitehall, daily prayer across the parliamentary estate and in Whitehall government departments, a large prayer/worship event, prayer for political parties and much, much more. With prayer support from Christians and prayer networks across the UK and the world, this is a great opportunity to pray for God's mercy and blessing on our nation. So, what are you waiting for?
