Resources - Prayers

FCC at Worship

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:

  1. At the start of a meeting
  2. Praise
  3. Saying Sorry and forgiveness
  4. What we believe
  5. Blessings
  6. Misc

Also see our three weekly series on praying - "Talk to Jesus first!"

At the start of the meeting

 

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.

 

Praise

 

You did that for me! A responsive prayer (PDF)   Accompanying Presentation (PowerPoint)

Nothing is too hard for God.  A responsive prayer

Thank you Jesus.  A responsive prayer of thanks ending with a simple blessing.  The prayer (PDF)  The presentation (PowerPoint)

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!

Nothing can separate us from the love of God!

 

Saying sorry and forgiveness

 

A responsive prayer in two parts.  Part 1 says sorry and Part 2 takes this on to our behaviour.  The prayers (Word) The presentation (PowerPoint)

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.

 

What we believe

 

Come and see Jesus.  A responsive prayer that has as its response, "We believe in Jesus"

 

Blessings

 

A variety of blessings - responsive, led, etc
