Young Methodists are offering people the chance to sign up for prayer text messages over the Lent period.
The prayer texts have been written by children and young people from across the Methodist Church. They are intended to inspire other young people embarking on the 46-day spiritual journey of Lent. Mobile phone users can sign up to receive daily prayers by texting LENT to 66777 (charged at the standard network rate). The texts will be free to receive.
The text messages will be sent around 12.30pm each day throughout the whole Lent period, including Sundays. The messages are aimed at children and young people. One prayer text, written by Olivia aged 12 from the Croydon Methodist Circuit, reads: “Lord, please help those in poverty who go to sleep hungry at night. We pray that when the G8 leaders meet in the UK they help to bring an end to hunger this year.”Read this story in full on the Methodist Church website
