Pray

Will you pray with us?

Paul wrote in Philippians, 'In everything by Prayer'. There are impossible challenges in our country and we need God to act more than anything. Every day our teams pray together asking God to bless our Groups, volunteers and young people. We believe we can reach a generation of young people, thanks to your prayers, so please join in.

“For such a time as this…” A nation-wide Urban Saints prayer gathering online.

Join with a whole host of volunteers and supporters of Urban Saints and Crusaders for a unique time of prayer together. We’re gathering online as one movement to pray for the young people of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The prayer gathering is free to take part but please sign up on our website so that we can send you the details of the Zoom call in the run-up to the day:

"We are more than conquerors" - an urgent call to unite in prayer against the coronavirus...

We are asking Urban Saints, Crusaders, our friends and supporters to join together to pray for our country and especially for young people everywhere.

It is with great regret that we announced in March the suspension of all our Groups and since then the cancellation of Camps and Overseas Adventures. This is the first time that we have had to suspend our face to face meetings, therefore this is a time that requires a profound prayer response from Christians everywhere. 

We are hearing daily of the huge health and social consequences the coronavirus outbreak is having across the UK, Ireland, and around the world. In fact, many of us will be confronting the challenge of no longer being able meet and worship together face to face; so, in response let us take a united stand in prayer together.
 
We are not victims of isolation but prayer warriors for the Kingdom.

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.

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we set time aside to pray continually for 48 hours - taking it in turns to lift up the needs of the movement to God in act of faith and unity. These '24-2' prayer times are something we try to do at least once a year. This June, we are looking to gather together as one movement for an hour of concentrated prayer for the young people of the UK and Ireland - the National Prayer Gathering.

Anyone can join in with this and we encourage you to take part - wherever you are based and however you are connected to Urban Saints. 

Thank you so much for supporting us in this way!


More Than Conquerors

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39 New International Version (NIV)


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.
