As the Come and See mission on the 12th-15th March draws nearer, it’s time we start thinking about the foundations of it all – prayer. Every month, we will be producing a prayer leaflet, kindly written for us by Sister Heather Francis OHP.
On the Prayer page, you’ll find a selection of weekly Bible readings and prayer topics, which (we hope!) will help you focus your prayers as the weeks get closer. There is also a short service for you to use on your own or with two or three others.
This month, we begin our focus dwelling on the quote “Surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses”, as we realise we do not pray alone, and consider questions like ‘who brought us to faith’ as well as giving thanks for those who enhance our worship with music, poetry, dance, and drama.
We do hope you’ll join in this wave of prayer as we ramp up for what is sure to be a wonderful weekend of prayer and mission.
- ‘Come and See’ is the Northern Bishops’ Mission to the Diocese of York, led by the Archbishop of York and taking place from 12th to 15th March 2020.
‘Come and See’ is an opportunity for us to unite in local mission and evangelism; we pray, we invite, we celebrate and we offer hospitality, all in the power of the Holy Spirit, telling the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We will be joined by about 30 bishops, each with a small team of lay people, children and youth workers and clergy; each bishop will be allocated to a deanery.
