Prayer Schedule

The Day will provide Christians all over the world an opportunity to unite in prayer. It will focus on individual provinces and extra-provinces of the Anglican Communion, and churches in relationship with the Communion, in 30-minute slots. Provinces from all over the world have been producing short prayer films for the event with authentic local expressions of prayer, worship, readings and reflection. These will be played in these time slots.

FAQs

What time should I join?

You can join at any time that suits you, stay for as long as you like and come back as many times as you want. You can join the slot allocated to your province or choose to pray with other parts of the world...or both.

Should I pray alone or with other people?

It’s up to you. You can choose to watch at home, at work – wherever works for you. And you can decide to pray alone or organise a Prayer Watch Party and invite friends or a church group to join you. Praying with others can be a particularly powerful collective experience. Whatever you decide, you will be contributing to a global wave of prayer. And we hope you will feel inspired and united to the global church.

What is a Prayer Watch Party? 

A Prayer Watch Party is where a group of people get together in the same local area to join an online worship experience . You can meet in your house, church or anywhere else suitable. It can be a collective powerful experience of prayer and solidarity. To hold a Prayer Watch Party, invite friends, family or church members to meet at the time you plan to join this event. If you can’t meet face-to-face, you can still invite people to join online from their own home at the same time as you. That way you will know you are sharing the same worship experience.     

Can I watch prayer videos from other countries?

Yes! We encourage this.  Use the timetable above to see the times for each province and then join the ones you’d like to see. The event is a great way to pray and join with Christians around the world in worshiping Jesus Christ. More than half of the 42 provinces in the Anglican Communion have already pledged to join and we are excited to share their contributions with you.
