The UK is in an unemployment crisis. The church has always responded with compassion and conviction to help those in greatest need. As long-term unemployment affects so many, this is a powerful time for the church to step in – to pray, to create new jobs and to give hope to many. 

At the Evangelical Alliance, we believe the first step to tackling a problem is to turn to our heavenly Father in prayer, who is attentive to the needs of His people and powerful to act. That is why we have produced a new prayer resource, Job Creation Project: Pray fuel pack. The pack can be used for personal and small group prayer, and there is a streamlined version available as presentation slides for wider church prayer meetings. 

The Bible tells us that work is intrinsic to who we are as image bearers of God. We hope and pray this resource will deepen your understanding of this truth as well as equip you to grapple with the UK’s current unemployment crisis and provide fuel and direction for prayer as we ask for God’s help.
