PRAYER

Prayer is how we talk with God - and how we can listen to

what he wants to say to us!


There are lots of different ways of praying, but it doesn’t have to be complicated, follow a particular pattern, or be done in a special place. Whatever we say, wherever we are, God is waiting to hear from us because He loves us and wants to share in our lives. Happy times when we want to say thank you, difficult times when we need help, God is always there.


Sometimes our prayers are just between ourselves and God, but at other times we might want to share our prayers and ask other people to pray with us for the things that we are concerned about. If you would like to us to pray with you, please send us a prayer request.


When we aren’t sure what to pray for, we can always start with the prayer that Jesus gave us, and see where God leads us next:


Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass against us

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,

For ever and ever

Amen
