Day of Prayer: Thank you – please continue to pray #dayofprayer

Thank you to everyone who took part in Friday’s Day of Prayer.

This facebook note from GLO Bookshop seems, to me, to capture the spirit of the day:

Thanks to those who joined us during our morning prayer time, and also at the ‘Blokes Tour’ event in the evening, where we spent a time praying for the present difficult position for the Uk Christian Book Trade. We were also encouraged to give thanks for the current positive trading position at the Bookshop in Motherwell, and thanks is due to all the staff & volunteers who work so hard to put us in that postio. [sic]

Please keep praying for us, and other Bookshops up & down the country!

I was encouraged throughout the day by the #dayofprayer twitter stream, some of which I’ve copied below: my personal thanks to everyone who tweeted it out; and in response to Eddie Olliffe’s question in the stream I’d say, it doesn’t take a crisis to persuade us to pray (most of us, I suspect, are praying most of the time), but it does seem to take a crisis to bring us together!

Please feel free to leave feedback on how the day went for you either on this thread or on the Day of Prayer page; and please be sure to send your comments to Joy McIlroy, the Day of Prayer co-ordinator (dayofprayer AT and/or to Amy Boucher Pye (boucherpye AT
