100 Days of Prayer 2019

"There’s no template for this. It’s not another ‘initiative’. Just pray!"

So says the Bishop of Penrith, the Rt Rev Dr Emma Ineson, as she encourages as many people as possible to join together in '100 Days of Prayer' to seek God's lead for our future vision to continue to grow his Kingdom here in Cumbria.

100 Days of Prayer runs from Pentecost (9 June) to 17 September - and we invite you to take part, whether here at Carlisle Cathedral, at your local church or at home.  The invitation asks everyone to spend time over 100 days praying and listening to God. There are no rules - just pray!

Prayer cards will be available at our services in the coming weeks and a monthly prayer diary will reflect the joint commitment to prayer. But we want everyone to feel free to pray in your time and in your own way.  100 days of prayer will be followed by 100 days of listening - from September 18 to Christmas Day - listening to God, to each other, to our churches and communities. More details will follow about how we’ll do this. Above all, we pray that God will lead and guide his people in Cumbria as together we seek to find his vision focus for this ecumenical county - for 2020 and beyond.
