YOUR PRAYERS URGENTLY NEEDED AGAINST YOUTH VIOLENCE

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-4​

Tens of thousands of young people are caught up in criminal activity and violence every year. The recent upsurge in knife crime is both terrifying and heartbreaking. 

It’s time now for Christians to fight this battle to demolish strongholds with prayer - and that starts with you.

Be a light in the darkness. Pray along with thousands of Christians for the young people in your town or borough. Sign up now and let's cover the map with people praying for Peace on our Streets.

PRAY FOR OUR YOUTH

Knife violence has been increasing in our inner cities and amongst young people at an alarming rate over the past years.  Following our popular prayer campaign held just before the summer holidays (traditionally a time when violence has spiked), we are now calling on Christians from across the country and across denominations to harness the power of prayer to reduce knife violence.

Add your name to those who believe our youth are worth praying for and light up the map.

He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation nor will they train for war anymore.


Isaiah 2: 4
