"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!"

An eleven part Bible Study on a broadly Celtic-inspired theme of Faith and Creation, which you can look at online or click the printable version if you want to use it offline or with your local Bible Study group. Connexions Bible Study
These five studies cover the very busy last few days of Jesus’ life through the Cross to the Resurrection, mainly using the texts from Matthew, Mark and Luke. We look at the people, places and decisions made that culminated in the Easter that we celebrate each year. There are lots of discussion questions along the journey to enable users to think a little deeper about the story, and suggestions for prayer in the lead up to Easter.
This is a story about injustice, doubt, fear, pain and, ultimately, degrading death. It tells how God experienced these things in the same way as ordinary human beings. But the final theme is victory - the victory of Christ over death - and this is why the story cannot end at the Cross and be separated from the story of the Resurrection.
