Christian Nightlife Initiatives (CNI) Network is encouraging people to pray on its International Day of Prayer for work in the night-time economy on 28 February 2016.
This day, which happens annually, celebrates the achievements of Christian Nightlife Initiatives including significant reductions in violent crime, community transformation and investments into local areas through volunteer initiatives such as Street Angels, Street Chaplains, Town Pastors, Youth Angels and Club Angels.
Requests for prayer for the day include issues of human trafficking, binge drinking and depression; young people around alcohol and safety; and for the night-time industry and its workers.
‘CNI Network’s Bible verse is Isaiah 58:12 which says, “You will be called the one who makes city streets like new again”. Through the amazing work of volunteers across the world we are seeing this become a reality as crime is reduced and “no-go” areas are made safe. God’s Kingdom of city streets becoming like new again is exciting when partner agencies such as the Police share crime statistics that prove when Street Angels patrol an area crime is reduced. This International Day of Prayer aims to mobilise people to pray for our communities at night so that more and more streets, and people, are made like new again!’, commented Founder of Street Angels – CNI Network, Paul Blakey MBE.
