prayer cards

Pray together for a tranfigured church

You call us, God
You call us out of a harsh land and into freedom
You call us out of despair and apathy
You call us into a vision of another way of living

You call us, Jesus
You call us into hope and friendship
You call us to build your kingdom
You call us to break bread with you and with the hungry

You call us, Holy Spirit
You call us to transformation
You call us to shine into the darkness
You call us into the world to change it
Give us the strength to follow where you call.


(Marie Pattison, Katherine House)

This is our special prayer for Church Action on Poverty Sunday. Use it, and you will be praying for a transfigured church together with hundreds of other congregations and individuals around the UK.

We have prayer cards available, with the prayer and other information about Church Action on Poverty. Please distribute the cards and ask people to join in prayer on 26 February. You could hand out cards at church services, food banks, and anywhere else where people are working to build a ‘church of the poor’.

Contact 0161 872 9294 or and let us know how many prayer cards you need.
