Praying through the lectionary

Prayers to accompany the lectionary readings

St Patrick

The Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) offers a three-year cycle with four readings for every Sunday in the Church Year. These readings are:

    A Lesson from the Hebrew Scriptures (or Acts during the Season of Easter)
    A Psalm
    A Lesson from the Epistles or Acts
    A Lesson from the Gospels

Praying through the Lectionary

Prayers for all three of the Lectionary years are available in one book which I have written, The Act of Prayer, now sadly out of print but possibly still obtainable through online book re-sellers.

Prayers for Year C of the Lectionary were written before the book was commissioned, so are on the website here


The ACt of Prayer

Prayers for Year C

Your love
flows like a stream
into the ocean of your Grace.

Your love
encircles this world,
displays your faithfulness.

Your love
is patient and kind,
brings wholeness and true peace.

Your love
is all we desire
to heal our brokenness.

As all things pass
and fade away
love remains
