Prayer

  • Here in the London North East Division we want to encourage a culture of prayer. To this end we produce resources around a specific prayer focus every six weeks for you to download and use as you see fit. They might be perfect to help you theme your corps prayer room or might be just what you need to give your own personal prayer time more focus.
