Think Friday: Let's pray
I know it is a Wednesday, but we were keen to share some news with you and ask you to pray this weekend.
Both Lives Matter commissioned some polling and the headline news is that the majority of people in Northern Ireland are opposed to the new abortion regime being imposed by Westminster. You can read some coverage here.
We would love to invite you to pray for our land at this time. A number of church leaders have organised a day of prayer on this coming Saturday and Sunday (October 12-13). Churches across Northern Ireland are invited to join them in opening their church doors for people to drop in throughout the day to pray. A helpful sheet has been prepared that could be used as prayer guidance for those that may drop-in. A set prayer has also been prepared, for use during a service, or as you see fit. Both these resources are available here.
Our friends at Both Lives Matter have organised a peaceful gathering at Falls Park, Belfast also for this Sunday the 13th, at 3.30 in the afternoon. This is a cross-community, inter-generational, peaceful protest, and will last no more than 1 hour. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more information.
This is an incredibly busy season. We would ask you to pray for the team here at Evangelical Alliance and our friends at Both Lives Matter and CARE as we work together to keep Northern Ireland the safest place for both mother and baby.
