Vision4Life - Prayer
The URC's Vision4Life proved popular among local churches. Many of the resources are available to download, though sadly no-longer in print. Two booklets are available for use especially in small-group discussions, and can be home-printed if desired.

Prayer & Spirituality
This booklet aims to provoke conversation and experimentation, helping local churches to engage with some aspects of the Vision2020 Spirituality and Prayer statement:
"We will grow in our practice of prayer and spirituality, nurturing strength for our witness to Jesus Christ, and developing our discernment of where God is and what God is calling us to do by reading and studying the Bible and through the power of the Holy Spirit."
Let Us Pray
A fresh look at some of the different ways that Christians can join together in prayer as a faith community. This booklet steps aside from many of the more common themes covered in books on prayer, and deals specifically with:
- Event Intercession - how can we wrap our events with prayer: beforehand, during and afterwards?
- Corporate Listening Prayer - how can we allow the Holy Spirit to set the agenda when we meet together to pray?
- Prayer and Mission - how can we be guided by the wisdom, opportunities and timing of the Holy Spirit in mission?
- Personal Prayer Ministry - how can we minister to one-another with the Spirit's active help in times of personal need?
