24-7 Prayer at St Bs
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…" 1 John 4:18
The next 24-7 prayer week is: Sunday 21 February - 28 February 2021
We can't use the prayer room in our building this prayer week, so instead we have set up a online Zoom prayer room which you can use. Sign up for a prayer slot for login details.
How does 24-7 prayer work?
We use 24/7 prayer's model for our weeks of prayer.
We have an online schedule that you can log into and sign up for a slot of prayer for an hour/ half hour. This can be on your own, or with a group such as your 2-4 group.
There will also be OPEN SESSIONS every evening throughout the week on Zoom where anyone can come along to pray - no booking required. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom links
We would love as many people as possible to sign up for an hours slot during the week, and feel free to sign up for multiple slots over the week if you can.
Each evening there will be a prayer gathering between 8pm and 9pm led by a different team from within St Bs.

Virtual Prayer Walk
to see our virtual prayer walk.
To help encourage you to pray around the community a team of creative prayers have prepared a virtual prayer walk through our community.
There is a route that you can walk as you pray, and in various places prayer stations to help you pray in particular ways.
The prayer stations are displayed as 360 photographs in different places throughout the area. You can physically walk to those spaces and then find the prayer station on your phone, or you can travel around the spaces virtually on your computer and be inspired to pray in different ways for our local community.
In a normal prayer week, the walls are soon covered in post-it notes and art from those who have prayed, listened and been inspired to share what God has been saying. We would love you to share what God has been saying to you this prayer week on our curated pinterest board. Go to https://pin.it/6CRl1Bn for access to the board.
The 24-7 Prayer website have loads of great resources you can use for your time of prayer. Check them out HERE.
For our Morning prayer sessions we'll be using the Archbishops call to prayer during February on the church of England website which you can find HERE.
What are we praying for?
Our theme for the prayer week is Love > fear!
‘There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…’ 1 John 4:18 (NIV)
We are living through a very fearful time. For good reason. The combination of a pandemic and its knock-on effects on jobs, mental health and general insecurity makes for a difficult landscape. While it’s not universal, many are feeling more fearful, more isolated, and more at risk than ever before – and this is inside the church as much as it is outside.
It is in relationship with a God of love that He drives out fear:
• fear of him (and alienation from him), that is overcome on the cross.
• fear of life abandoned in a broken world.
• even fear of death, which is not ‘THE END’ because of his promise of eternal life.
So in him we see that LOVE > fear.
Keen to keep on praying?
As well as our Sunday prayer ministries, we have a number of prayer networks and small groups which regularly meet to pray.
