Pray for COP27

The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP27, is being held from 6–18 November in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Global leaders have come together to discuss how the world can tackle the climate crisis.

Tear Fund invite us to join in prayer for these crucial talks. Their guide, which you can access here, is divided into two sections: the first giving suggestions about what to pray for, and the second providing different creative prayer ideas for you and your church, group or family to use.

Recent reports have shown just how critical COP27 is:
