Every year, Christians across the world join together in prayer, with prayers and reflections prepared by a different group/church.
This year’s Week of Prayer has been prepared by the churches across Latvia and has a theme of ‘Salt of the Earth’. The material has been based on 1 Peter 2: 9-10:
“You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
We will be meeting across Guisborough throughout the week of Monday 18th to Monday 25th January. A list of the ties & venues are set out below:
