Daily Prayer

There are many different ways of praying and many different resources available to help us to pray each day and it is interesting that daily prayer in all traditions includes reading the Psalms, the Old Testament and the New Testament. Here are some ways to begin….

Word for today…. is an A5 booklet which is available in church for free. It suggests a single verse to read each day and has a thought for the day based on that verse. It is also available online, where you can choose to have it emailed to you each day to help us remember!

The Bible in a year … reading the bible helps us to understand what God is like and how he relates to people. Research has consistently shown that reading our bibles is the best way for us to grow in our faith. One way of reading the bible in a year is to have the bible passages and Nicky Gumbel’s comments on them emailed to you each day. This can be can be found at here.

The Examen… this is an ancient form of prayer developed by Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556). Mike Saunders our vicar finds this very helpful and uses it at the end of each day. Here is a link to a simple modern explanation of the examen.
