Londoners will come together to pray for their community needs Thursday, May 19th. The day kicks off with the annual London Christian Prayer Breakfast.

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.

“For over 15 years, CCNL has brought Christians of all denominations together for a time of breakfast conversations 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, for those that serve our community and for our at risk and vulnerable neighbours."

Prayer brings followers to a place of humility and gratitude. 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 in which we live and who care about those devoting their lives to our service. This day is a call to prayer that will inspire deeper engagement in our community.

We encourage you to scroll down or click HERE a "Day of Prayer" guide for suggested topics of prayer.

Our heartfelt petitions bring us closer to God, bring His help, and remind us that we are not alone. Our focus on a special “day of prayer”, is to draw our attention to the power of prayer and remind us, as a community that there are needs around us that can easily be forgotten.


When God was sending his people into Exile, He knew they were going to feel like outsiders in a foreign land. In spite of that feeling, God asked them to: “seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” (Jeremiah 29:7)

We want to invite you to join us in taking time on May 19, to pray for the city of London. Our hope is that, as you take this time to focus on our city, it will encourage you to pray regularly for our city and even make it part of your daily routine.

––––––––––––SUGGESTED PRAYER GUIDE ––––––––––––

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.
1 Timothy 2:1–4 (NLT)


Since Paul’s prayer focused on people, our prayer focus is on three important groups of people in our city. Consider setting your alarm for 3 times during the day when you can take some time to pray for the following individuals in our city:
  1. Those that Lead us
    • Our Mayor and City Council
    • Our Provincial and Federal Representatives
    • Our Leaders in our churches, workplaces, and schools
  2. Those that Serve us
    • Our Police and Fire Departments
    • Our Health Care workers
    • Our City Workers and those involved in education
  3. Those at Risk and Vulnerable
    • Our homeless, orphans, and widows
    • Our weak and frail due to aging and diseases
    • Our friends, family, and fellow citizens who struggle with mental illness
    • The many organizations who are serving these needs

SUGGESTED PRAYER REQUESTS FOR PEOPLE IN EACH OF THESE CATEGORIES
  • That God would give those that lead and serve wisdom in the many decisions they make
  • That they would have the courage to do what is right in spite of differing opinions
  • That justice and freedom would be maintained in our society
  • That individuals would be protected from physical and spiritual attack
  • That those who lead would be good stewards of the resources they oversee
  • That there would be a good connection between the needs in our city and the people who are seeking to meet those needs
  • That churches would be strong so they can help meet the needs in our city
  • That our city would be generous in caring for needy people
