A day to pray as one for:
Join in either as a local project, a church or individuals - the key thing is we unite as one to pray for the night-time economy and all that includes! We have also put together a resource sheet for a church to include prayer for the night-time economy within the service on Sunday 26th February 2017 (or any Sunday!)
Your people will rebuild the cities that were destroyed long ago.
And you will build again on the old foundations.
You will be called the one who repairs broken walls.
You will be called the one who makes city streets like new again.
Isaiah 58:12 - The Bible
Lord as we pray ‘God’s Kingdom come, God’s will be done, on earth as in heaven’ help us to be people who make that a reality for our communities. We thank you for the work that happens at night in communities across the UK and overseas to help make this prayer a reality. We pray for every single person who has received help from one of the Street, Club or Festival Angel volunteers. We pray for those caught up in a life of addiction - that freedom may be found. We pray for those who volunteer to serve you at night - for strength, energy and wisdom. Thank you that alcohol related crime and A&E admissions are reducing in the UK year on year - we give you the glory Lord for this, the changed lives and changed communities. Amen!

Throughout the year we have daily prayers available on this page and as a Google Calendar - please feel free to include the calendar on your web site, to send us prayer pointers and to make this calendar known.
CNI Network also working with Neighbourhood Prayer Network to see every street in the UK prayed for. Our street patrol projects often pray for the streets as they patrol alongside the action of helping others.
CNI Network also support (and Leeds Street Angels feature on) the JustPray video of The Lord's Prayer. Our heart is to see the reality of 'God's Kingdom come, God's will be done, on earth as in heaven' within the night-time economy across the world. This is evidenced through safer streets, changed atmosphere, crime reduction, less binge drinking, etc.
