Who will stand? Prayer vigil for an end to poverty

One of our supporters has started a regular prayer vigil. for an end to UK poverty, and invites others to join her.

We're happy to pass on this message from Susanna:

"Those with the spirit of Jeremiah, who absolutely despise and abhor the injustice and ill treatment of the most vulnerable people in our nation, need to stand up for those who have no voice and are too weak to defend themselves. We are in a very huge battle, we must stand together undivided, and defend the poor and needy. Jesus said that this evil thing shall not go out except by prayer and fasting. He also said that where two or three are gathered together, he is there with us. Those who will stand and pray are together all together in spirit. I believe that if as many as possible will STAND with me on a Friday night, something will give. I am certain!"

The vigils take place every two months, and the next one is on 30 November. You can join in simply by agreeing to pray in your own home. You would be asked to abstain from food and drink between 6pm and 6am, and spend one three-hour 'watch' during the night in prayer and reflection.
