Inspirational Prayers - new and old

I am not a poet
or musician,
I have written
a song of praise
in my heart
and in the quietness
of this moment
I shall share it with you,
in the certain knowledge
that any imperfections
will be made perfect
in the simple act
of opening my heart,
and singing.

There are many hundreds of inspiritional prayers, contemporary and traditional, on the website. Check out the prayer index here

Christian Prayer

Prayers for healing and wholeness

Healing and wholeness go together, because broken lives are made whole though the love and grace of God. Healing is a recurring theme throughout Scripture, and the Apostles and early Church knew well the power in prayer to bring healing, wholeness and peace into lives. Check out the three pages of prayers on healing here

'Firm Foundations' - A four part Bible study

Firm foundations

‘Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”’ (Matthew 16:17-18)

These four studies give us an overview of the birth of the Christian Church, from the Resurrection appearances of Jesus and his Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, to Pentecost, the day to day issues of being Church, a few teething problems, unity and disunity, worship, persecution and the outward spread from Jerusalem to the surrounding countries!
