Firstly, a message from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

"The hardest bit of praying is starting. So just start however you can - God will meet you where you are."

Please remember those words. It doesn't matter where you are, the time of day or night or your emotional state. God will listen to you if you want to contact him through prayer.

Also, take heart from the advice given by Pope Francis. He said: "Men and women who pray know that hope is stronger than discouragement. They believe that love is more powerful than death, and that love will surely triumph one day, even if it be in times and ways we do not know."

Each day we post a prayer for the day on this website. Please use it to help you in your mission to get closer to God. So now you can click on our prayer for the day.
