Our work is founded on prayer; as a charity we have time set aside in our working day for it and we acknowledge that we can do no worthy thing without God on board.
We would love you to join us in prayer – this page will be regularly updated with situations that need prayer. You can also receive our quarterly prayer diary though the post or receive weekly text alerts with a client's prayer need.
Thank you for supporting our work and vision through your prayers and faithfulness.

F is a Christian, but, due to a marriage breakdown and family abuse, is losing her faith. She has begun a reconciliation with her husband but wants her joy back. Pray that God will bring total restoration and forgiveness in her situation.
Courage for prospective clients
10 January 2014
The start of a new year quite often triggers people to want to sort their finances out for the upcoming year. Pray for courage for anyone who is in need of debt help, that they will take that first step and won't be ashamed of their past financial mistakes. Also ask for God's presence in our New Client Enquiries team, whilst they work through a notoriously busy month of calls with some difficult conversations. Finally, please thank God for all the incredible work our New Client Enquiries team did last year – thousands of people are now in a better position mentally, emotionally and financially partly because of their friendly, helpful and practical approach on the first call to CAP.
