<span style="font-size: 1rem; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and a number of senior church leaders are inviting Christians across the nation to participate in the month of prayer – launching today – as a second lockdown in England comes into force.</span>

Throughout the month, Christians will be encouraged to pray daily for a specific area of national concern, wherever they are, culminating into a collective moment of prayer at 6.00pm each evening, with cathedrals and churches across the country invited to ring a bell at this time. You are invited to follow a simple seven-day prayer cycle, praying for a specific area each day including the NHS and frontline workers, the bereaved, and those struggling with physical and mental ill-health, and for children and young people.

Full details including the Archbishops letter can all be found on the Church of England website: churchofengland.org/PrayerForTheNation. Prayers and other resources will be shared on social media with the hashtag #PrayerForTheNation.
