Praying for our world
Our world’s climate is changing. And this is affecting people across the globe. We believe in a God who cares for and loves every human being on the planet. And as Christians we can join in fighting for change, by prayer and with action.
This November, world leaders will gather in Glasgow UK for the COP26 world climate summit. Tearfund, 24/7 Prayer and ‘Renew our World’ have joined forces to create an 8-week guide to help pray for COP26 and the challenges of climate change. Each week covers a specific theme with prayer points. There are also creative prayer ideas to equip you to pray in new ways, either as an individual or in groups. Access the prayer guide HERE.
