Are you ready for the call to prayer? Why not join our Street Pastors Network National Prayer- we call our nation to pray 24/7 for the month of October 2016.
Prayer is at the heart of what street pastors do. When you meet a street pastor, whatever they are doing or however they are helping you, they are part of a bigger team that is praying for your town right at that moment.
Each Street Pastors team includes prayer pastors who gather at the Street Pastors base and are in touch with the team that is on the street through mobile phones. They also have a radio that connects them to CCTV operators.
Prayer pastors are committed to praying for street pastors and for incidents that arise in your town while street pastors are on patrol.
Why do street pastors pray?
Christians pray because they want to talk to God about the people and situations in their life – they want to acknowledge and include God in all that they do. Street pastors believe that prayer and action go together: so it’s important to pray and it’s important to do something practical. Christians believe that God teaches our spirits and our minds and that through prayer God can change us and our world.
A prayer for street pastors
Living God, we praise you for the vision that gave birth to Street Pastors and for every life that has been touched through this movement of your Spirit. We thank you for every street pastor and we pray for them as they share your love with others. We ask for your protection and encouragement, your wisdom and courage and an ever deeper faith in and love for you.
We pray for those they meet week by week in the pubs and clubs, in the late night cafes, on the streets and at the bus stops. May those who are lonely be warmed by your presence; those who are bruised and hurting find healing in your love; those that are ashamed and without hope be set free by your forgiveness and grace.
Lord Jesus Christ, you came to seek and to save the lost. Thank you for the privilege of being your hands and feet, your eyes and your heart where we live. Give us eyes that see as you see, hearts that love as you love, and words that you can use to bring life and peace. And in it all, Lord God, give us thankfulness, generosity and joy in serving you, who to serve is perfect freedom and who to know is Life eternal.
God of Grace, to you be honour, praise and glory, from everlasting to everlasting, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. AMEN!
A prayer for our nation
I thank God that his Kingdom works through the Church. I pray that you all will be encouraged by what God is doing through us to bless our nations, to strengthen our communities and to see our communities transformed. May our Lord Jesus continue to strengthen us and the work of our hands as we serve him in our local communities, cities and nations.
