Welcome to the Parliamentary Prayer Cards Website

Here you will find the latest status and news of the prayer cards (scroll down). To read Jo's story click here.

In 2009 Joanne Grey had a vision while reading Proverbs 10:9 to hand stitch a simple cross stitch design that would be hand mounted in card and sent to every member of both The House of Commons and The House of Lords in Parliament. Jo's vision is that the person making each card prays for the person who will receive it. Jo died in January 2015 leaving the project unfinished, although she was still stitching hours before she died. If you would like to find out more, or if you can help in any way, please email Colin Grey at prayercards@colingrey.com

Note: I am hoping for the project to be complete as soon as possible.
