5:17 is the prayer arm of South Asian Concern.
Many people are committed to pray regularly for South Asia and for those who are reaching out to South Asians in the UK. At South Asian Concern we encourage prayer through our 5:17 support group (the name coming from the verses below). Many of those involved in 5:17 were formerly part of the Prayer Fellowship for South Asia.
As part of our commitment to prayer SAC send out a bi-monthly Prayer Diary and 5:17 meet together twice a year for Prayer Days. If you are interested in becoming part of 5:17 please click one of the links below or contact us to receive the Prayer Diary by post or email.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
