A prayer for urban estates from the Diocese of Blackburn

22nd February 2019 saw the General Synod pass a motion for a loving, worshipping, serving Christian community to be on every significant social housing estate in the country.

In order to mark the first anniversary of this commitment, our friends at the Diocese of Blackburn have invited “as many Christians as possible” to pray for these estates on Saturday 22nd February, using the following prayer:

Faithful God,
your compassion embraces all people.
Renew your church in service of the urban estates of our nation;
that anointed by your Spirit we may bear witness to your power to heal and save,
and the transforming love revealed in your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
