24/10 Prayer

In the Diocese of London we are each encouraged to sign up for an hour so that there is someone praying throughout the ten days 24 hours a day.  You can find out more here.  You can sign up for a slot here.  You can see or download a helpful one page prayer guide here.


Daily Prayer

Especially in this lockdown when our days lack the usual shape and pattern, perhaps we might find it helpful to put in these four daily prayer times (or one or two of them): morning prayer; prayer during the day; evening prayer; and, night prayer.  Here is a beautifully designed prayer leaflet.


During the ten days of TKC I will be praying morning prayer at 9am; prayer during the day at 1pm; evening prayer at 5pm (via Zoom with Fr Ken) and night prayer at 10pm.
