2020 Diocesan Prayer

Here is our prayer for 2020…

Faithful God,
we praise you for your steadfast love and the truth of your eternal word;
the rock on which we build our lives.
Give us new hope and the confidence to trust your promises,
that as we reach out in loving service to families both near and far,
we will find you already ahead of us,
bringing your Kingdom into being,
in every community,
in every family,
in every heart.
Amen

The prayer is available to print as 4 to a page

Praying Through The Day – printable resource

Praying Through the Day book

The Bishop of Reading, Rt Rev’d Olivia Graham, has given this endorsement of our Praying Through The Day resource…

One of my earliest memories is of being tucked up in bed by my mother, and saying prayers, always ending with

Day by day, dear Lord we pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
And follow thee more nearly
Day by day.

This pack is full of encouragement and reassurance to families, each one different, to find its own rhythm and style of prayer and to create the space to deal with life’s puzzlements and big questions.  And it has much to teach adults, as we each grow in confidence in our Christian lives, about our daily need to praise God, to ask for what we need, and to see our whole lives through a lens of thankfulness.
I warmly commend it to you, and God bless you and your family as you grow closer together and closer to God.
