The Queen's Baton prayer relay

A prayer resource has been developed by World Prayer Centre to accompany The Queen’s Baton as it travels around the Nations and Territories of The Commonwealth before arriving in England on 4 July and finishing its journey in Birmingham, ahead of the Opening Ceremony of the Games on 28 July 2022.

It provides prayer information for each of the nations and territories that The Baton visits, which you can download here  and you can also sign up here to receive an e-Newsletter as The Baton makes its journey.
