FOR THOSE WHO DON’T DO CHURCH
It’s the work of a traffic planner, a shop manager, a writer, a designer, an entrepreneur, a civil engineer and others.
A conversation on a train went like this. The guy in his 20s was asked, “Do you ever pray? ” His reply was, “Yes. I prayed for two people who were seriously ill. One died and the other got better.” He concluded he’d had 50% success.
This reflex – the desire to reach out to God – is basic to many, many people. Trypraying is a resource for people like that: no church connection or interest, but open to find out about God. The trypraying booklet is a 7-day prayer guide and is now being used by many to pass on to friends and family with a few words of encouragement – ‘Why don’t you try praying for a week and see what happens in your life?’
We stand in solidarity with the Christians
who have had to flee from Iraq and Syria
