CARE’s prayer resources are helping Christians to pray more

It's been so encouraging to see public interest in prayer increase over the last few months. The coronavirus has changed life as we know it and many people have begun to think more about the big questions of life and death.

Pray­er is cent­ral to all we do at CARE

It almost seems like a cliche to say we're passionate about prayer, at CARE... but it's true! Our work would not be possible were it not for the prayers of so many people all across the UK who stand with us by praying about some of the great moral and ethical issues of our time.

In this CAREcast, James and Celia discuss the recent surge of interest in prayer
