A festival of prayer and worship for 2022
Welcome to this year’s opportunity to celebrate #ThyKingdomCome.
We are using this period to encourage you to pray for five people that they might come to know the love of the Lord Jesus.
With so much creativity and ingenuity within our Diocese we know there will be many exciting stories and testimonies to share which will encourage us all in our discipleship.
Who might you pray for? Who needs to hear God’s voice and God’s welcome to “come home” and find rest and peace for their souls?
The Being Witnesses team would love to hear from you ... please email: email@example.com
