Short film-prayers to encourage Christian communities and individuals to engage with injustice.
I work with World Vision New Zealand and when curating worship events I always struggled to find visual media that would stimulate prayer with a justice-edge. So we commissioned these film-prayers (prayer-films?) to help Christian communities to better think about and engage with injustice - locally and globally. They are unashamedly "Kiwi (New Zealand) but if they work for you then download them for use in your own settings. (click on the small black text at bottom right of screen "vimoe.com...." and download button will appear on next screen)
We will be adding to this resource from time to time.
We'd love to hear how you have used them, and any suggestions you have for other prayers.

    Awesome and beautiful. I'm using these for prayer calls for World Vision US Child Protection to be used in praying for the children of Kenya, Cambodia, Mozambique, El Salvador, Bangladesh, Armenia, India

    Mark - these are beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I just finished reading a book on St. Francis - and this was a great exclamation point. I LOVE Elliot, Lulu and Mia. Powerful stuff!
