Resources - Prayers
Please see the page of general concepts and the very limited copyright issues here, towards the bottom of the page.
I have listed here a wide range of prayers that we use. You will note that I have taken ideas from all over the place including the Celtic tradition. In all cases I have needed to make the language much simpler.
Some are striaghtforward prayers. Some are responsive prayers and some are chants. Please do adapt them as you require.
The main categories are:
Also see our three weekly series on praying - "Talk to Jesus first!"
In the Beginning. A declaration using a candle, a Bible and a cross. God creates light, talks to us, and died for us. The page has two versions of this.
Lord Jesus be with us - a simple introductory prayer.
Lighting a candle - a prayer that reminds us of the Trinity.
Lord Jesus help us to... - a responsive introductory prayer.
Praising God - another starting praise prayer with a presentation.
Nothing is too hard for God. A responsive prayer
Thank You (PDF) - A responsive prayer thanking God for Creation. There is no presentation for this but it would be very easy to create a slide show to match the words, or use photos or slides, or even some tangible items to demonstrate the words.
Jesus loves me - a joyful responsive prayer!
Jesus Saviour and King - a responsive shout of praise!
Knowing we are forgiven - a happy responsive prayer saying how great God is to forgive us
Thank you for Forgiveness - a responsive prayer, with actions, recognising that we sin, but thanking God for His forgiveness.
Come and see Jesus. A responsive prayer that has as its response, "We believe in Jesus"
A variety of blessings - responsive, led, etc
