Save the Date for Prayer Week 7th-13th June

Download our Prayer Week leaflet and join us as we lift older people to the Lord

This year we're marking Prayer Week from Sunday, 7 June to Saturday, 13 June, praying for older people across the UK. The Bible teaches us that each person is valuable, precious in the sight of God, and it’s our mission to make sure that every older person knows that they are loved and treasured by God.

For Prayer Week, we’ve created a day-by-day guide to help us pray. Each day, we’ll be reflecting on a Bible verse and then praying for a different issue or area of work which impacts later life, from loneliness and dementia to carers and church ministries.

As a special part of Prayer Week 2020, we’ve asked some of our friends who are also working to support older people to share more about how we can tackle some of the big issues as part of series of blogs.

Faith in Later Life, a charity supporting the church in the UK to reach older people, will share some of the ways that Christian communities can befriend and support older people. Linking Lives is doing great work helping those who are lonely, and Louise Morse will help us better understand how to get alongside those living with dementia.

Each day these blogs will be shared on the Pilgrims’ Friend Society website. We’ll also be sharing links to these blogs, plus prayers, on our social media accounts.

If you don't yet follow us on social media, find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We believe in the power of prayer to bring about change – whether that’s a dose of kindness and comfort offered from one person to another or massive social change, we know that prayer works.
We hope you’ll join us!
