Diocese of London's Week of Prayer returns to St Paul's
01 April 2015
As part of its Capital Vision 2020 project and following two successful years at the Cathedral, the Diocese of London is again calling on all people to visit St Paul's for a special Week of Prayer in May.
For the whole week beginning Monday 18 May, the Cathedral's Chapel of St Michael and St George will be used as an interactive prayer space by the Diocese, inviting all people from its 400 parishes and beyond to come to the Cathedral for what the Bishop of London describes as 'authentic prayer', around the theme of 'journeys' - whether that be our personal or faith journeys.
In a letter on the Diocese's website The Right Reverend Richard Chartres, says: "Whatever our church tradition, we know that authentic prayer - listening deeply and responding obediently - takes time. Our busy city life will eat up all available hours and it is a good discipline to remind each other of the importance of prayer by having deliberate seasons of waiting upon God.
"So in May we will hold our third Week of Prayer in preparation for the great Feast of Pentecost, praying that we may be strengthened in our inner being with power through his Spirit.
"I hope that once again, many of you will come to St Paul’s Cathedral, to pray during this week. As well as the Cathedral’s regular pattern of worship there will be dedicated space in the Chapel of St Michael and St George to support your prayer journey over the week in creative and different ways."
The chapel will be open for prayer throughout each day and people are invited to attend as individuals or as part of wider parish and church groups.
