Christian Prayers and Worship Resources

Faith & Worship - Prayers & Church Resources

Welcome to Faith & Worship!

"Prayer is at the heart of Christian worship, and has been since humankind first encountered their Creator in a certain garden!

"On this site you will find lots of worship resources, mainly centred around our prayer life. There are hundreds of prayers, both ancient/ traditional and many new ones which I have written, often influenced by Celtic Christianity.

"Changing prayers for each day of the week are accessible via the top navigation bar and here.

"There are also complete liturgies, collections of prayers and Bible studies available to download."

Traditional and ancient prayers

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." --- John Muir

"I will thank (God) for the pleasures given me through my senses, for the glory of the thunder, for the mystery of music, the singing of the birds and the laughter of children… Truly, O Lord, the earth is full of thy riches! " --- Edward King (1829-1910) Bishop of Lincoln

May God the Father bless us;
may Christ take care of us;
the Holy Ghost enlighten us all the days of our life.
The Lord be our defender and keeper of body and soul,
both now and for ever, to the ages of ages.
(Æthelwold c 908-984)  

Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you, for ever.
(Source unknown - early Scottish)

Favourite Christian Quotes

"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God."
--- Albert Einstein

"The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a sunhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the sun shines on it."
--- C.S.Lewis
