About prayers on the Move

Thank you for taking the time to look at this website. It’s part of the Prayers on the Move project, which you may have seen advertised on public transport networks around the country. We hope that the posters, booklet, website and app will encourage you to give praying a go, or to try doing it more often.

If you’ve ever wondered why people pray, or you’d like to know more about what prayer is, see ‘Why pray?

You don’t need to be religious to pray, but praying may help you to develop your spirituality and to connect with something bigger than yourself.
