A GIANT cross has been erected outside St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast ahead of a special day of prayer.

The interdenominational Divine Healing Ministries (DHM) is inviting all to pray "for our land to help people find God’s peace".

The event will be held on Saturday September 17 and is open to everyone.

It is the vision of Billy Moore, a lay-reader in Lisburn Cathedral who is responsible for the outreach work in the Hillhall Estate in Lisburn.

Mr Moore and Dean of Connor Sam Wright asked DHM to organise the event. DHM itself has recently completed seven years of prayer "for the renewal and revival of the faith in this land".

Br David Jardine of DHM said people were encouraged to come as individuals before God on that day - to lay down their own personal burdens from the past, to forgive those who have hurt them, to say sorry where they may have hurt other people, and to pray for the future of the north.
