It takes more than goodwill to see a community changed. It takes prayer. That is why we’ve developed the following resources to help you as you pray for your community.


Opening Prayer

In the beginning
We read that your Spirit was moving over the water,
Let your Spirit move over the chaos and emptiness of today.
Let your Spirit move like a like a rolling river of justice,
Your righteousness like a never-failing stream!

Common prayers prayed by those on estates

A short collection of devotionals and prayers based on common problems faced when serving your community. The following prayers are designed to give you a head start with your quiet time. Providing a thought, a line of scripture, and written prayers you can pray along with. This is a gentle call to intimacy with the Lord in response to some of the challenges we all face in estates ministry. Those moments where our insides are crying out, “God, help!”

God, I’ve been judgmental…

God, this urban ministry stuff is tough!

God, where are you?

God, I’m too busy to pray…

God, someone has hurt me…

God, my neighbour is an addict…

God, I feel tired…
