Lent Prayer Project

Prisoner Grid Lent 2024Every year during the six weeks of Lent Christians in Ireland join together in prayer for six Christian prisoners. In Lent 2024, we’ll be praying for the prisoners pictured beginning on Sunday 18 February (the first Sunday of Lent).

For each prisoner we publish a Prayer Profile which includes details of their arrest and sentence, their family and church, latest news and prayer points. The Prayer Profiles are available on this website, via our weekly email and on Social Media.

Prayer Profiles are also featured in the Spring issue of Church in Chains magazine which you can order by completing this form.

2024 Lent Prayer CraftThe Spring issue also contains a Junior Lent Prayer Project for Sunday schools, children’s clubs and families. It features the same six prisoners in an age-appropriate version of their stories and a prayer for each one. In conjunction with it we produced this printable craft, so we can share the importance of remembering the persecuted church with the children in our lives.
