It has been said that we learn to pray by praying, not by reading about it. That said, speaking with others and listening to their understanding of prayer can help us reflect upon our own experiences.
How to Pray is therefore a collection of thoughts and ideas to help us think about prayer, especially if we are new to it, returning to it or simply want to refresh our prayer life.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to
Psalm 27:1 - 5.
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold[a] of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers assail me
to devour my flesh—
my adversaries and foes—
they shall stumble and fall.
3 Though an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war rise up against me,
yet I will be confident.
4 One thing I asked of the Lord;
this I seek:
to live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in his temple.
5 For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will set me high on a rock.
We bring before you our prayers of thanksgiving for the Queen and her life, and for our country. We give thanks for our Queen and the life she led. Thank you for her 70 years of service and dedication to our country and the commonwealth.
Her life was remarkable and we give thanks for it.
At this sad time, we think of the Royal Family who, just like any family after the loss of a relative, will be hurting and processing this loss.
We pray that you will support and comfort the family over the coming days and weeks.
We pray for our country and the Commonwealth as we all come to terms with losing our Queen. As we mourn her loss we ask that you comfort and support us.
Please also be with the country support us. Please also be with the country’s politicians and leaders as they steer the country through this period.
Finally we pray for our new King, King Charles III. We ask that you give him the strength and encouragement to take on his new role and perform his duties as King. Be with him and help guide him always. Amen
