Christian Prayers and Worship Resources

Faith & Worship - Prayer & Bible Study Resources



Welcome to Faith & Worship!

"Prayer is at the heart of Christian worship, and has been since humankind first encountered their Creator in a certain garden!

"On this site you will find lots of worship resources, mainly centred around our prayer life. There are hundreds of prayers, both ancient/ traditional and many new ones which I have written, often influenced by Celtic Christianity.

"Changing prayers for each day of the week are accessible via the top navigation bar and here.

"There are also complete liturgies, collections of prayers and Bible studies available to download."

Lent & Easter Bible Studies

Lent Bible study

There is a choice of Bible Studies for Lent, either following the traditional verses associated with the season, or taking as their theme favourite Easter hymns.

The new one for 2017 is called 'A Green Hill' and uses the verses of that well-known hymn, 'There is a green hill far away' to lead our thinking through five individual studies.

Written for ease of copying, only one is required per group, making these Bible studies very economical at £2.99 or $4.55.

Sovereign Lord,
your hand has touched
the dry bones of our faith,
your Word has breathed
new life where there was death,
your spirit raised
us up from where we lay,
your love has brought
us home and to your Cross,
and by your grace
we stand forgiven, free.
Hallelujah!


Sovereign Lord,

and by your grace
we stand forgiven, free.
Hallelujah!


Jesus, Lamb of God,
when you walked this earth
you did not consider
heavenly equality,
though that was yours to choose,
but took the role of servant,
and in humility
and obedience
allowed the rough nails of our sin
to be hammered into your flesh
for the sake of our salvation.
And so it is
that we acknowledge you
as Lord of all,
to the glory of God the Father,
Son and Spirit, Three.
