A different look for ReLENTless Prayer 2021

Friday February 5th 2021

Flashback to Lent 2020 – a Prayer Room set up for ReLENTless Prayer. This year ReLENTless will continue in online formats.

ReLENTless Prayer is set to return to north Belfast and beyond, although the Covid-19 restrictions mean it will look somewhat different.

The initiative, now in its fourth year, seeks to bring Church congregations and Christian communities together with a shared vision of encouraging people to pray and ask for God’s blessing and healing on the people and life of their community.

In previous years, prayer spaces were opened up to everyone to drop in and spend time in quietness, to reflect and pray.

Because of the pandemic, this physical coming together cannot take place, but Stephen Whitten, Evangelist with Connect Base, Connor Diocese’s North Belfast Centre of Mission, has announced the initiative will continue using online technologies.

“Obviously, ReLENTless Prayer can’t happen this year in its usual format, but instead of just leaving it for a year, we want to do something, although small, to keep up what is a good rhythm of taking the Lent season to focus on prayer,” said Stephen.

He outlined how this year’s ReLENTless Prayer will look:

  • Each Wednesday (starting on February 17) through Lent we will meet to pray on Zoom from 12:30-1pm.
  • Each Monday (starting on February 22) through Lent there will be a short Thought for the Day posted on Facebook.
  • Each Sunday through Lent in church services, you can join with the others involved and pray the ReLENTless Prayer.

Stephen has also circulated prayer topics for this year to help focus and guide prayers.
