Londoners will come together to pray for their community needs Thursday, May 19th. Christian Churches Network of London (CCNL), an association of Christian congregations have announced their annual Day of Prayer to bring together the city's Christians to pray for the “forgotten heroes” and the challenges of the urban region. The day kicks off with the annual London Christian Prayer Breakfast, an event attended regularly by up to 500.

"For over 20 years, CCNL has brought Christians of all denominations together for a time of breakfast fellowship but most importantly prayer", notes Eric Stolte, chair of the organizing committee. "For the second year we are extending our challenge to the wider Christian community to pray for our local leaders, those that serve our community and our at risk and vulnerable neighbours."

Beyond the breakfast banquet setting, CCNL is encouraging Londoners to take moments on May 19th to share prayers with other faith-filled friends, coworkers and family, centered on concerns of the city and those things that make a city strong, generous and prosperous.

To encourage all people of faith in this prayer focus, the CCNL is reaching out to local media, working with local Christian radio station Faith FM, and social media and enlisting their membership of over 140 churches and ministry organizations.

Prayer brings followers to a place of humility, gratitude and worry-release. It's letting God know that we are thankful for so much and allows us to cast our stress on a power so much greater than us. Our city needs citizens who appreciate the amazing place we have and care about those devoting their lives to our service. This day is a call to prayer that will inspire deeper engagement in our community.

The encouragement to pray includes "those at risk" as a topic. CCNL's event focus has shed light on local homelessness and poverty, women and men in abusive relationships and new Canadians who face many challenges as they settle into their new home.

Tickets to the London Christian Prayer breakfast can be acquired through the CCNL office and many area churches. This year it is headlined by Juno-award winning Steve Bell, activist and Canadian singer-songwriter, who will inspire with his story and songs. The event is at the Lamplighter Inn & Conference Centre (591 Wellington Road South) at a new time, 7:15am until 9:30am.
