Churches Together in Ewell Prayer Week

CTE Prayer Week runs from 25-29th May 2020

Use these resources and links to pray for our community, our country and our world 


Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.
Christ of the mysteries, I trust You
to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know
that my times, even now, are in Your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven,
and somehow, make my obedience count for You.'

Thy Kingdom Come Global Prayer

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury invited people around the world to join. It runs for ten days between Ascension and Pentecost.

Join this global wave of prayer and pray in whatever way you want, with whoever you want from 21st - 31st May 2020  for others to come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ.

Praying for others to know Jesus is one of the most powerful things we can do.

Over 65 churches sing a blessing over the UK

At this  unique and challenging time, over 65 Christian churches and movements, representing hundreds of others have come together online to sing a blessing over our land.  Standing together as one, the desire is that this song will fill people with hope and be an encouragement.

In John 17:21 Jesus prayed to his father in heaven, that his disciples would be one, so that the world will believe that he was sent by the father.  As you listen to this being sung over you by many different denominations coming together as one, may you truly be blessed by God and draw closer to him.

The Lord bless you,  And Keep you.
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you.
The Lord turn His face toward you,
And give you peace.
As we receive, we agree, amen.

Chorus : Amen, Amen, Amen

May His favour be upon you,
And a thousand generations.
And your family and your children
And their children and their children.

May His presence go before you,
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you.
He is with you, He is with you.
