 The Lord's Prayer 

 Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

A prayer for yourself

God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

And Wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time.


Reinhold Niebuhr

  A Daily prayer

Lord, we offer you ourselves this day, for the work you want accomplished; for the people you want us to meet; for the word you want uttered; for the silence you want kept; for the places you want us to enter; for the new ways you want pioneered. Go with us along the way Lord, and enable us to realise your presence at all times and in all places, through our loving Lord Jesus Christ. Amen    Morris Maddocks


Prayer for those seeking God

God be in my head, and in my understanding;

God be in my eyes, and in my looking; 

God be in my mouth, and in my speaking;

God be in my heart, and in my thinking; 

God be at my end, and at my departing.    

Sarum Primer


Prayer for Others

Teach us, good Lord, 

To serve you as you deserve

To give and not to count the cost;

To fight and not to heed the wounds;

To toil and not to seek for rest; 

To labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do your will.

St. Ignatius Loyola


 Prayers for the departed

O Father of all, we pray to thee for those whom we love, but see no longer.

Let light perpetual shine upon them; 

and in thy loving wisdom and almighty power work in them the good purpose of thy perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Book of Common Prayer (1928)
