Join us over the weeks leading up to Easter to reflect, pray and connect as we follow Jesus into prayer and justice.
Pray Like This is a seven-week series of prayer, art and spiritual practices to help you follow Jesus’ teaching in the Lord’s Prayer, and explore the intersection of prayer and justice in your discipleship.
Each week will explore a line from the Lord’s Prayer and how in it, Jesus teaches us about prayer, discipleship and justice, with reflections from contributors including:
Weekly prayer prompts and prayer practices will help you unite in prayer for issues of poverty and justice facing our partners and for the church in Australia.
Through images and stories, go deeper in your understanding of issues and connect with an area of Tearfund’s work.
This year, our Lent series features images from regions where Tearfund's partners are working, with hand lettering from Rani Gillan.
Rani is a graphic designer and lettering artist living and working on Quandamooka country on Brisbane's bayside. Rani has been a follower and supporter of Tearfund Australia's work since her primary school years when she first heard about their Useful Gifts at a church Christmas stall. As someone who identifies as a person living with a disability, she is particularly drawn to Tearfund's heart for social justice work and helping the world's most marginalised, including First Nations people.
Rani works across digital and analogue mediums and loves using her hands to create lettering art and calligraphy that brings beauty to the world. When she isn't designing, Rani likes learning how people live in communities across the globe through her love of world cinema, and about herself by creating food that connects her to her South Asian heritage.
Each year she looks forward to receiving her Lent study series from Tearfund in the mail, and contributing her artwork to the series this year has made the tradition extra special.
Pray Like This launches on February 22 2023, released via email each week during Lent (the seven weeks leading up to Easter).
