There will be a Day of Prayer for Our Land in Clonard Monastery on Saturday May 20 between 1pm and 5pm.
This follows the very blessed Days of Prayer which took place at St Anne’s Cathedral in September and Lisburn Cathedral in February.
The organisers, Diving Healing Ministries, said: “This day will be an opportunity to help people to find God’s peace personally and also to pray for the nation as we approach another election.
“With all of this in our minds and hearts, this is a very significant time for people to come together and to seek God’s help and direction.
“For some people, their peace may have been disturbed during the years of ‘The Troubles’. For others it could be anxieties, fears, and hurts that have arisen in recent times.
“The Day of Prayer will be an opportunity to lay down those burdens, to forgive, to say sorry, and to pray for the future of our country.”
The focal point will be a large plain wooden cross at the front of the church. All the prayer will be in silence with short reflections every 30 minutes. There will be a special opportunity for clergy to gather around the cross at 1pm and women at 3pm.
“This day is for people to come as individuals before God, and through that encounter, however long or short, to find His peace,” said Divine Healing Ministries.
People may come and go as they please and everyone is welcome. The hours of prayer will be 1pm to 5pm. Personal prayer will be available for anyone who wishes to receive it and there will be refreshments available throughout the day.
