What is prayer?

We love prayer.  It is all about giving our attention to God.  Anyone can pray, at any time and any place. Prayer is like having a conversation with a friend or family member, except you are talking and listening to God.

How to pray?​​​​​​​

There are many ways to pray;

  • Use words – think or speak or sing them
  • Say ‘Amen’ to someone else’s prayer
  • Give our feelings to God
  • Do something prayerful – light a candle or visit a church or with your friends
  • Be quiet with God – on your own or with other people
  • Listen to and or meditate on Christian worship music, there are lots of videos available on the Lightwave You Tube Channel

The Lord's Prayer. ​​​​​​​

Our Father,who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory

for ever and ever.
