Pray for CAP this Sunday

A year ago the money advice charity CAP (Christians Against Poverty) was approached by a BBC film crew creating a documentary about UK destitution. Fast forward to Friday, 5 October and it will be airing on BBC2 at 9pm!

Called ‘The Debt Saviours’, the hour-long programme follows the lives of some very brave clients and incredible frontline workers. It profiles the work of the UK Church in caring for the poor and rescuing people from debt across the UK.

Over two million people from local communities are going to see the transformation that CAP and the UK Church are bringing to people’s lives. Can you imagine what could happen as people witness the real hope and community that our amazing clients have found in Christ and their local churches? John Kirkby, the founder of CAP says, "Your prayers are vital as we need God’s covering on this thing – it’s massive!" 
 
This Sunday, 30 September, will you stand with CAP in prayer for this opportunity? 

Many churches will be praying corportately for the documentary - you can find a suggested prayer to read out in your church here. Or here are some other points for individual or small group prayer:

Pray that:

- As many people as possible watch the documentary

- The documentary would spark conversations around faith and encourage people to connect with their local church

- People would be inspired to get involved in supporting and partnering with us to start up their own CAP services locally

- Those watching who are struggling with debt, poverty and its causes would find the courage to seek the help they need

- The brave clients featured in the programme would know the impact they’re having by sharing their personal stories

- Churches would be energised and inspired in their outreach to the poor

- God would be glorified through this amazing opportunity

There are more resources, and a short video, on the CAP website.
