Enriching our prayer life
This resource includes creative ways to pray and new ideas for leading prayer. There are fourteen sections that could be used at meetings, services or events throughout the year. Each theme also includes prayers on the given topic, a Bible verse and if used as a whole should take about 15 minutes to complete. These resources can be used in their entirety or just to stimulate further ideas. They can be the basis of collective prayer or used at other times on your own. A list of resources needed for each idea and where to source them is included.
The Themes are:
- 130th anniversary
- New beginnings/ hope
- Living fire
- Using our talents
- Family life
- Love one another
You can download the whole document, individual sections and the templates from our Resources section
Please take time to regularly pray for the people listed on the Diocesan intercession calendar, our various events and our projects and include our Diocesan prayer in your branch meetings.
This prayer speaks to us in Oxford Diocese, affirming what God would have us do and challenging us to carry out his purpose.
MU Oxford Diocesan Prayer 2019
we accept the path laid before us knowing that you will be with us to the end.
We accept the call of Christ, whose voice we know and trust to guide us through our lives.
Each one of us receives from you the gifts for the tasks you want us to do.
Give us open ears, eyes and hearts as we adapt to meet the needs of this present age so that we can act with insight and integrity to make a difference in our world.
As we walk into the future with faith may our pace be set by our perfect guide; neither running ahead nor lagging behind but always in step with you, our God.
