Daily Prayers for January 2018

Prayer is at the centre of our Christian faith. It is when we spend time with God telling Him of our love for Him; giving thanks; asking for forgiveness; sharing our worries, concerns and frustrations; asking for guidance and help; and praying particularly for others, especially for those who are suffering in some way or facing particular challenges – for healing, for peace or for release from the burdens that they carry. 

You may like to follow the Church of England's Daily Prayers (services for Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer); and we have a special prayer for St. Michael's, and a One Prayer: from me to God and from God to me. There is also some information about our prayernet.

At St. Michael’s we also use our prayer diary (below) to include in our prayers. These daily suggestions are usually about our Church and the Myland community, but sometimes include national and international issues too. We invite you to join us in using this diary; and may the Lord answer your prayers.

Please also remember in your prayers all those mentioned on our St. Michael’s Prayer Cross. Our Prayer Cross is in the north-west corner of the church nave. You are always welcome to place on our Prayer Cross the name of someone who is particularly in need of our prayers, or you may like to contact us and we will add their name for you.

You can find more about prayer at St. Michael's on our Prayer Meetings page.
