Over many years, the Chapel has operated a prayer network through which requests for urgent prayer are quickly relayed to every member. It also alerts members to particular needs in our church family and so as well as praying, people will often be able to do more - phone, call round, cook a meal or provide transport. And all this can be activated within hours, so no waiting until the following Sunday for the church to be alerted.
We have held 24-hour prayer weekends over two or three consecutive days and nights (we’ve not yet managed a complete 24/7).
There is a growing sense of needing to pray together more often, and links with the World Prayer Centre in Birmingham and other groups who are passionate about prayer are helping and inspiring some in our church to step out in prayer.
The Chapel hosts a monthly prayer and praise session supported by representatives from each of the local churches in Falcon Lodge.
We are also privileged to provide practical prayer support at St Giles Hospice in Lindridge Road linked to their Bereavement Support Group. Hurting and grieving people can be supported with Christian prayer and offered guidance in how to talk to Father God for themselves.
