UK Day of Prayer – Friday 13th November 2020

The Evangelical Alliance has called for all Churches and Christians across the country to come together and pray for our nation next Friday.

A suggested prayer schedule for the day can be found on the EA’s website.

It is proposed that as many of us as possible join in this day of prayer both individually and collectively.

Paul will be sending out an update on how we might come together and pray in the next couple of days.

We invite you to use the below timetable as a way of praying throughout the day on Friday.

Lord, today direct my thoughts, inhabit the stillness, give power to my words. In Jesus’ name, amen


Pray for those in the caring and emergency services, often tired, discouraged and weary.
Those in hospital, and those in intensive care.


Pray for the bereaved, anxious and fearful.


Pray the Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
In Jesus’ name, amen


If possible, go out and move around and pray for your community, streets and local businesses. Those shielding or in isolation.

Early afternoon

Pray for the church in the UK, that we would carry the gospel, be salt and light.


Pray for the poor, unemployed, homeless.
Those with addictions.
Those struggling with mental health issues.

Late afternoon

Pray for the vulnerable, children, those with disability and their carers.
Those who are lonely.
Those who are fearful in their home situation.


Pray for those in positions of power and leadership and decision makers.



Lord of grace,
may your goodness fall in our nations.
Father of love,
pour out your love on, in and through us.
Spirit of fellowship,
build and strengthen communities across the UK.
Have mercy,
heal our land,
extend your kingdom in our day.
In Jesus’ name, amen

We look forward to praying with you.
