Christians in Sport are calling on Christian Rugby players to join in prayer over the telephone on Saturday morning.
The 45 minute conference call will begin at 9am. Writing on their website the charity said: "It's simple - call a number, enter a pin code and be part of a phone call with others from Christians in Sport Rugby to pray for your teammates and the world of rugby."
"Prayer is so important to all that we do, but often we find this difficult by ourselves. So why not take this opportunity to join together in prayer with other men's rugby players from across the country, from wherever you are!"
The initiative is part of Christians in Sport's 'Sport Networks' that help to connect Christians from their sport together and resource them to live out their faith in their clubs.
Elizabeth Hunt from the organisation said supporting 6,500 Christians scattered across the UK has made regular face to face meetings "virtually impossible" and believes the prayer calls have "been a great way for Christians in the same sport to connect and encourage each other as they face the same challenges day in day out."
Each of the 17 networks aims to host a prayer call every month, with up to 11 people joining in with each call.
Anyone wanting to join in with Saturday's prayer call can phone 0800 022 9417 free from a landline or 020 3398 3153 from a mobile. The pin code for is 346477.
