At Christian Aid we are strongly committed to inspire and encourage churches and individuals to hold poor communities in prayer.

On this page you will find prayer resources for some of the different thematic areas we work on, monthly prayers which include a prayer to tie in with every week’s lectionary reading, prayers for issues in the news, as well as prayers for emergencies.
