Prayer and Activism
Manage episode 354988984 series 2548662
Is prayer a form of activism? Can we pray in hope when we are feeling weighed down or weary of injustice? What can other cultures teach us about how to pray?
Abi spoke to Philip Powell from The Justice Conference and Lynne Paterson from Tearfund. They share their journeys of prayer and give us a practical and theological guide of how to pray, listen and remain hopeful in a world of injustice.

You can donate to Tearfund's Emergency Appeal for people impacted by the earthquake in Syria and Turkey here, as well as accessing their special prayer guide.
Sandra Maria Van Opstal from Chasing Justice also shares her experiences of worship and work against injustice in her community in Chicago, and how time spent lying face down on her carpet before God is vital to her life. She reminds us of the power of silent prayer - to help us remember that we are the created and not the creator.
You can buy Sandra's book The Next Worship here.
