THE Bishop of Sheffield has called on churches across the diocese to focus on the power of prayer during 10 days between Ascension Day tomorrow and Pentecost.

Each year for the past three years, Dr Steven Croft has urged churchgoers to pray individually and together during the Ten Days of Prayer. He said: “I would like to thank everyone for all they are doing to support our Ten Days of Prayer.

“The most important thing is that we pray individually and together. In one of those providential signs of grace, the whole Anglican Communion will be praying for the Diocese of Sheffield on Ascension Day.

The Bishop of Sheffield’s Adviser for Music and Worship, Rev Helen Bent, added: “For the past two years, thousands of people across the diocese have joined together. This is a great opportunity to explore prayer in new and imaginative ways.”
