R U Ok?

9 September 2021

R U OK? Day

Thursday 9th September is 'R U Ok? Day'  It's a national day of action, encouraging us to ask “Are you okay?”.  It’s a wonderful concept that is as relevant to Christians as anyone else in our society.

John 16:33 tells us, “In this world, you will have trouble.” Things are going to be tough for us at times as a consequence of living in a broken world. We should, therefore, take every opportunity to ask others, “R U OK?”.

Below are some ideas on how you might ask someone if they are ok. 

  • Ask the people in your house R U OK? You have five minutes to talk. If appropriate, pray for one another.
  • Send someone a text message this week and ask if they are OK.
  • If you are struggling, reach out to someone this week for a chat and prayer. 
  • Visit the RUOK Day website for more ideas:

Remember it doesn't end there:
