Day of Prayer – March 2010

This is an archived page for the UK Christian Book and Retail Trade Day of Prayer which took place on 26th March 2010.

Praying HandsFollowing the success of last year’s Day of Prayer, a second Day of Prayer was held on Friday 26th March 2010:

The plan is for all parts of the Christian media industry, retailers, suppliers, distributors and customers, to gather together on that day to pray for our trade at a time, and in places, to suit as many people as possible.

Joy McIlroy, from Ashburnham bookshop, who started the ball rolling last year over the internet said, “Further to the recent Christian Resources Together Consultation Day and the break-up of IBS-STL UK, we felt it was right to come together once again in prayer to thank God for his provision and to seek his guidance as we move forward together.”

The suggestion is that the focus of prayer should be for all aspects of the trade as we seek to move forward post-Biblica – but with a special focus on the local Christian bookshop.

If you hosted an event at your bookshop, in your church or at any other venue, please leave any feedback via the comments on this page. Where appropriate these will then be added as follow-up notes to meetings listed below.
