The Church needs to unite like never before and PRAY TOGETHER.
Dear St Marys,
I am writing this letter under a heavy burden from the Lord.
In the last few days I have been taking long morning walks with the Lord. In this time, I received a burden to support and facilitate a joining together of the ‘Wheels of Prayer’ already spinning.
I believe the Church needs to unite like never before and PRAY TOGETHER.
At 3pm on Good Friday we are asking you to step out of your home and join multitudes of Christians across Northern Ireland, Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales in prayer.
This will be a public expression of our faith and unity as The Church prays for the healing of the Land.
God bless you and thank you very much for giving me your time to read this email.
Please check out the press release and flyer below. I would like you to please share this with every Christian you know.
Grace and peace be with you.
National Day of Prayer & Worship
The flyer has no logo or names. This is deliberate because we want anyone and everyone to own it and spread it at local, regional and national level.
Christians are encouraged to come out of their homes at 3pm on Friday 10th April as an expression of faith and identification with our Christ on the Cross when He cried out “IT IS FINISHED!”. In unity, we will Sing “Amazing Grace”, Pray the Lord’s prayer and declare “It is Finished”

#GOOD FRIDAY #IT IS FINISHED!
3:00pm Friday April 10th, 2020
During the first week of April, many key church and denominational leaders have been deliberating on a united and corporate expression during the Covid-19 lockdown and over Easter. Firstly, to pray together about the ongoing pandemic and secondly to publicly express the Christian faith.
Two key things have emerged from this time of joint reflection;
1. A united 24hr Prayer Chain across Northern Ireland, Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales.
2. A Good Friday public expression of Prayer and Unity for the Healing of society.
All through April and May into June, Churches will unite in an ongoing daily prayer chain for the United Kingdom and Ireland. All Christian denominations, churches and networks are invited to contribute whatever minutes, hours or days of prayer they can provide. Nothing is too small or too much. The key factor is participation and our joint collaboration.
Some weeks ago, an initiative for the whole country was encouraged to stop and applaud the NHS frontline workers at 8pm. People came out of their homes to clap for these amazing people.
In the same spirit of unity, Christians are being encouraged to come out of their homes at 3pm on Friday 10th April as an expression of faith and identification with our Christ on the Cross when He cried out “IT IS FINISHED!”
Believers are being asked to come out, sing the well-known hymn Amazing Grace, pray the Lord’s Prayer and like Jesus say “it is finished” as we hope and believe for an end to this epidemic.
As Christians who believe in the power of prayer, we can only imagine the impact of millions of Believers praying at the same time across Northern Ireland, Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales.
This simple concept of continuous prayer along with the public expression of faith on Easter Friday has been agreed and accepted by practically all sections of the Churches within the United Kingdom and Ireland.
May the Grace and Peace of Christ be with us all during these challenging times and may we see the answer to our prayers with an end to Covid-19 and the lockdown.
