Prayer at Home
If you’d like to pray more at home, we’ve put together a little collection of resources that you might find helpful. Some are produced locally, some from further afield.
The Diocese has a Prayer Diary that suggests groups and individuals to pray for each day as we support each other in the diocese and across the world in prayer: https://www.hereford.anglican.org/PrayerDiary/
The World Council of Churches also has a rather lovely cycle of prayer that draws on prayers from across the world and can be found here: https://www.oikoumene.org/en/resources/prayer-cycle
If you’re looking for some Anglican forms of prayer, you can find things like Common Worship and the Book of Common Prayer here: https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/worship-texts-and-resources or there’s an app called ‘Time to Pray’ that is now free to use: https://www.chpublishing.co.uk/apps/time-to-pray
For the times when there are things you want to pray about but you just can’t find the words, the CofE also has a ‘topical prayers’ section to help: https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/topical-prayers
