Organisation: The Prayer Collective
Address: South City C3, 510 Colombo Street, Christchurch
Time: 7pm Friday, May 11 to 7pm Saturday, May 12
Details: Prayer Collective is hosting a 24 hour prayer event.

::Friday:::
7-9pm Corporate Prayer. All invited. 
9pm-12am Individual prayer time
(Sign up here: https://www.24-7prayer.com/signup/f4fa27)

:: Saturday:::
12am-6pm Individual prayer time
6-7pm Corporate Prayer. All invited. 

We kick off the Friday session with corporate prayer for Richard Dawkins (1 hour) and the youth (1 hour). Then from 9om we break off into individual prayers through the night and next day. Saturday we converge around 6-7pm to conclude the 24 hours of prayer together.

Why Dawkins? He is a well-known leader in the atheist community who is speaking at an event in Christchurch at the same time as Heartache is happening. He is a English Ethnologist & evolutionary biologist, who’s written books like “The God Delusion”. We will pray for his salvation but also for those influenced by him. Dawkins’ message does not offer truth or hope. At this time in NZ, our youth are in need of both truth and hope.
