There is a suggested prayer from CAP UK below:
We thank you for this incredible opportunity for people all over the UK to see how the Church and Christians Against Poverty are helping those in desperate need.
We pray that people would be inspired as they see your body – your people – at work, bringing your light and life to the darkness and loneliness that those in UK poverty are facing.
We pray that you would keep Holly, Gareth and the others who have bravely shared their stories safe, and that their testimonies would demonstrate to people the real hope and community that can be found within the local Church.
We ask that you’d enable those struggling with debt, poverty and its causes to find the help they need, and that you’d help us, your Church, to reach out in compassion to the poorest people in our communities.
We pray that this BBC documentary means more people will find a way out of their debt through CAP. We thank you for all their staff who are working to make this happen and pray your blessings over the work of their hands.
Show us how to love those around us, and teach us how to help each other.
