Fulfilled living in later life
Prayer Week 2022

Prayer Week 2022

Join us as we pray for older people and for connections between the generations as part of our Friendship is Ageless campaign.

Monday, 13th June - Sunday, 19th June

Our annual Prayer Week is an opportunity to pray not just for older people, but for all the generations and the need to build connections across age groups. Our free resource guides you through seven days of prayer based on our Friendship is Ageless campaign where we encourage you to look up and make friends with those from different generations.

You can download your free copy of our resource here, or order paper copies by calling 0300 303 1403 or emailing info@pilgrimsfriend.org.uk

Events

This year we're inviting you to three online events to equip you with ideas for building friendships across the generations...

Prayer Wall

We'd love to know how you're praying for older and younger people to connect. Could you share a prayer on our Prayer Wall? As well as sharing your prayer, why not take a moment to echo the prayers that others have posted too?

Heavenly Father Thank you for those who have a passion and love for older people. Thank you for encouraging us when we hear people praying in faith for Christian homes to be in their area; here in North Wales. Thank you for the opportunities you provide to engage across the generations, whether it be in church, or in our local care homes. May we see friendships strengthened across all ages. Amen
Barbara - Caernarfon
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that in Christ we are all one whether young or old. Thank you for those that are are actively showing that today by caring for those more vulnerable than them whether younger or older. Please would these people know success in their work today so that your love and glory may be seen and enjoyed by many. In Jesus name Amen
Josh - London
Dear Father Psalm 31 tells us that "our times are in your hands". Thank you for the long time that you have given to older Christians and I thank you for how I have been encouraged by experiences of your love at work in hard times shared with me. Thank you too for the shorter times that you have given to younger people and for their energy and vigour that spurs me on! But most of all, with so much going on around us I thank you that our times are in your hands, hands that created this world and loved it so much that you sent Jesus our saviour. Amen T
Stephen - London
Father God Thank you for all the opportunities to hear the Christian wisdom of our older church members. May it be that younger people realise the wealth of gifts that are available to them to encourage them as young people in their journey of faith.
Susan - Tunbridge Wells
Please encourage generations to communicate and have fellowship and friendships daily, instead of just on Sundays at church or for particular reasons such as the Jubilee. I pray that the community spirit felt recently is upheld and continued for all!
Emily - London
Dear Lord, please help us to be good children to our parents and good parents to our children, honouring you in all we do. Please help our young people to see the value and joy in spending time with the older generation and please help us in dispelling myths about stereotypes in all generations as you have made us in your image.
Fred - Bath
Please restore the balance of our culture, Lord, so that people of all ages may enjoy each other and share the experiences and gifts You give.
Louise - Cwmbran, Torfaen
I pray that the older generations will have opportunities to share knowledge and wisdom. That the younger generation will be able to share fun and fellowship and that all will live together in unity.
Vicki - Wakefield
God, please bless our friendships between old and young so that we can share your goodness with one another.
Alexandra - Bromley
I am praying more older and younger people would meet after or before church for Sunday lunch.
Helen - London
