Pray

Will you pray with us?

Being an 'Urban Saint' means prayer is essential and we seek to pray together regularly asking God to bless our Groups, volunteers and young people as well as the ministries of other youth organisations around the UK. We are passionate about inviting God into everything we do and we don’t want to achieve anything without God getting the glory. We can reach a generation of young people, thanks to your prayers, so please join in.

Urban Saints are supporting Youth For Christ's 'Pray Through May' initiative - with a collective focus to lift young people to God in prayer, that they might discover the fullness of life that Jesus offers. It all launches with a national prayer evening (online) on 28th April...

What's your 'one thing' for young people?

We'd love you to join us in praying for young people during this challenging season. Create or find a picture that sums up the word - write the word on a bit of paper or card, draw or paint something, take a photo or find a GIF or meme. Share it on your social media pages using the hashtag #prayonething, and/or email it to media@urbansaints.org.

Here are some examples that others have shared:


Prayer Requests

We have put together some key requests for prayer and would encourage you to join with us in praying for the young people across the United Kingdom and Ireland and for our ongoing ministry.

If, when you are praying, you feel God is speaking to you, please encourage us by letting us know.  Email lslade@urbansaints.org


Creative prayer spaces for Urban Saints

We produced some creative prayer spaces for our last 24/2 Prayer event. They unpack some prayer requests and other creative ways to inspire prayer for the different areas of Urban Saints. Although written for the 24/2 we will continue to update them and they can help shape your prayers throughout the year:
