This is an invitation postcard for the project Trypraying.
We’re excited about this new outreach for those who “don’t do church”. There are plenty more resources at www.trypraying.co.uk including for youth and children.
Trypraying is a prayer guide with a difference. It’s for friends, family, neighbours etc. who are asking questions about God and faith, or struggling and searching for answers, but who would avoid stepping into church. It’s for anyone you’ve ever spoken to, or prayed for, and had that feeling…this person wants to know more. The pocket-sized booklet features real-life stories, words of wisdom, and prayers that anyone can pray. Trypraying is a seven-day exploration of faith, which doesn’t shy away from the tough questions about suffering or unanswered prayer. The day-by-day format introduces the idea of a relationship with God, explains who Jesus is, and why we all need him in our life. It allows everyone to bring the ‘Big Issue’ in their life to God, perhaps to receive an answer to prayer - or to discover that there is a loving Father who is with them in their struggles.
Trypraying is dual purpose - it challenges Christians to share their faith. It challenges non-Christians to reach out to God. The booklet has seen many people come to faith in Jesus – first-time seekers, returners to faith, agnostics, atheists and even church goers.
Use these publicity materials alongside the booklet, or simply to have visible to those walking past your building.
