Lord, teach us to pray, asked the disciples 2000 years ago, and that is still our prayer as His disciples today

Over the centuries Christian communities developed prayers for different times of day, the patterns of which are still reflected in the Church of England regular services.  Others prefer a less formal approach, but all have agreed on the importance of prayer in the Christian life.  Here we offer a variety of resources to help you to pray: have a look at them all and use whatever suits you best

Finally, a prayer by Nick Fawcett for ourselves
This prayer is also available as a download at the end of this page

May your deeds be sparked by God,
reflecting His love and mercy.
May your words be used by God,
spreading hope and peace and joy.
May your hands be opened  by God,
extended in love to the vulnerable and oppressed.
May your thoughts be filled by God,
your entreaties answered in full.
May your feet be guided by God,
that you may walk in his way.
May your fears be conquered by God,
his strength made perfect in your weakness.
May your dreams be realised by God,
all things made possible through him.
May your prayers be heard by God,
your entreaties answered in full.
May all who you are,
everything you think and say and do,
be blessed by God,
constantly renewed
and daily transformed
through his awesome power
and unfailing love

Amen
