The Evangelical Alliance called a UK day of prayer on 13 November. We worked together with networks, denominations and churches to bring people together to pray. As communities across the UK face further restrictions and lockdowns, as many churches are forced to stop their in-person gatherings, as suffering and loss affect so many families, we heard the call again to unite and seek God together in this time of trouble.

Many people in the Evangelical Alliance had asked for a UK-wide day of prayer in response to the ongoing crisis and the second wave of infections currently gripping the UK and beyond. Regardless of lockdowns, we have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon the Lord, wherever we are. Churches and Christians across the UK were encouraged to come together, in one Spirit, to call on the One who saves – to bring light in dark places, to be the hope to the nations, to bring healing to our lands. Thank you for joining us.

We pray for all in leadership at this time, making decisions about the containment of the virus, for those working in health and social care, those working on a vaccine, those most at risk, and those suffering hardship and distress.
