Making room to pray

Please join us this September and host a back-to-school interactive prayer space at your church. Download our guide below or find it in live magazine (May/June issue). It’s a guide for you to use as inspiration; to adapt; to follow as is . . .  it’s up to you. The prayer room stations you’ll see were created with input from Baptist youth in southwest Ontario.

We’ll continue to curate and publish lots of links to teachings on prayer from Diane McBeth and others, prayer room resources, blogs and more. Do follow our Pinterest board for ideas and our Facebook Live chats about prayer rooms.
