The Methodist Church encourages churches
and individuals to focus on prayer and Pray
Without Ceasing was an initiative of the Church’s
young people, who called on the whole Church to promote a year
of non-stop prayer. Although the Year of Prayer ended at the end of August 2006, that's no reason to stop praying!
The aims of Pray Without Ceasing
To encourage continuous prayer
To affirm prayer that is already
To open new channels of prayer and encourage people to try out
new approaches to prayer
To be inclusive – of age, gender, culture,
A programme of continuous prayer was launched
at the Methodist Conference at the end of June 2005 and ran until the
end of August 2006. Methodist Districts (33 in Great Britain) were
encouraged to organise continuous prayer events for a week or fortnight
within that 14-month period.
As well as this Prayer-Rota, people organised local prayer events all year.
Resources were, and still are, available here for
those who want to be inspired to pray – perhaps in new ways,
perhaps more frequently, perhaps for the very first time.
