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