Christian Prayers and Worship Resources

Your Christian Prayer Resource!



Check out the small group Bible Studies!


John Birch

"Welcome to this growing resource which started when I needed some prayers for a service I was taking and couldn't find just what I wanted, so wrote my own.

"I've lost track of how many prayers I have now written, but I know that my book 'The Act of Prayer' has over 700 in it, and the majority are not on this site!

"Based as I am on the beautiful South Wales coast, not far from where the early Celtic saints lived and ministered, there are plenty of opportunities to find inspiration for writing, and this platform enables me to share those moments with folk from all over the world - what a privilege!"

Christian Prayer

Prayers for the morning

Are you someone who struggles to connect with God first think in the morning, when you are just that bit bleary-eyed, or in a hurry to leave the house for work?

Be thou my vision, Lord,
this day and every day,
the centre of my life,
the focus of my thoughts.
Be thou my wisdom, Lord,
the inspiration of my words,
in every situation,
Your Spirit my support.

Just spend a few moments quiety saying one or two of these prayers and allow the words to go with you through the day.

A Guiding Light! New Bible Study for 2018

Guiding Light bible study

If you have ever been on a package holiday by air, then the chances are that at the destination airport you have been met by a representative employed by the tour company to be your guide though the week (or longer) of your stay.

Christians tend to think of guidance in terms of questions such as “What should I be doing with my life!” “Am I in the right job?”, “Am I in the right relationship?”, “Which Church should I go to?” and no doubt many more!

This study examines the theme of guidance, looking at Scripture and using examples of famous guides from history to inform our discussion.

Newly published!  Prayers of Life

Advent Bible Study

A new collection of prayers for 2018, with over 200 contemporary prayers written individuals, worship leaders and small groups.

From blessings and prayers at the start of the day, these prayers begin with our own walk with God and spread out to encompass our fellow travellers throughout the world, along with their joys, concerns, needs and conflicts.

The book is available as paperback from Amazon, and as a PDF download here for use on tablets etc.

In this confused
and fragile world,
strengthen our faith,
increase our love,
and let your peace
flow through us,
that we might be
an ocean of calm
in what has become
a restless sea.


Help us see this world
as through your eyes,
and this world see you
reflected through ours.


For more info, and sample prayers, head to this page!

Available as a paperback from Amazon

Also available as a pdf for mobile devices (Kindle is just a nightmare for poems!) from the online shop


Christian Prayer

Prayers about mission and service

A collection of new prayers looking at the Christian's response to the love that has been shown to us in Jesus Christ and the natural response to want to share that love with others.

Triumph & Tragedy - Women in the Bible

In this Bible study, we’re looking at four Old Testament women who have a common connection with King David; three (Michal, Abigail and Bathsheba were wives and the fourth, Tamar, was his daughter).

The stories of these four women are intertwined at times, and include other members of the extended family, some in a helpful role, others very definitely not!

It is possible to see them as stories that would fit nicely into the soap operas that form part of our TV viewing, and there is also great tragedy, violence, intrigue and betrayal to add to the mix - but then, this is the Old Testament!
