Christian Prayer

Prayers for Lent and Easter

Contemporary and traditional prayers for the season of Lent through to Easter, including Lenten liturgies.

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.

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.

New Lent Bible Study for 2018!

Lent Bible Study

Five Bible studies for Lent looking a little more closely at the stories of some of the characters in the gospels who encountered and followed Jesus, for some all the way to the cross.

We look at Nicodemus, perhaps a secret disciple who was there with fragrant herbs when Jesus was buried in the tomb; Mary and Martha who were friends, followers and offered  hospitality to Jesus; the Samaritan woman at the well, to whom Jesus confessed that he was the Messiah; the disciple James, who saw the transfiguration and still didn't understand; and finally Mary Magdalene, one of the women standing nearby when Jesus was crucified.

These people have much to teach us about our own relationship with Jesus. There's plenty of background information in the study as well as discussion questions and space for thought and prayer. Individual studies will copy onto 2 double sides of A4 paper for ease of use, or are easy to view on mobile devices.

As always, permission is given to duplicate and distribute the study around the members of a small group meeting.

Available to download as PDF for £2.99 or $4.55  from the shop


Engaging with the World in Prayer

Advent Bible Study

Ripples is all about engaging with the world in prayer, and is a collection of 300 contemporary prayers for personal use, or for those who lead worship in church.

Imagine throwing a pebble in a pond, and watching the ripples spread out over the surface of the water. So it can be with our prayers, which start with our own walk with God and spread out to encompass our fellow travellers throughout the world, along with their joys, concerns, and needs.

For those who walk
more slowly
through this world
than in the days
when they were young,
may each step
be made lighter
and their joy be greater
for seeing beauty
in little things
that the hurrying pass by.

 

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

Available as a paperback from Amazon where so far its got 5 star reviews!

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