Ready To Send! 
Methodist Children and Youth have just launched a brand new initiative for Lent. They  are hoping that children and young people will sign up to receive a prayer via a text to their mobiles every day. These prayers have been written by children and young people in Methodist Churches and projects across the country, as well as at 3Generate. The prayers are about things that matter to them. 

You can access these prayers by texting LENT to 66777. (This initial text is charged at standard network rate, but it is free to receive the prayers which will be sent to phones automatically each day.)
