Most of us know that we need prayer at some time in our lives. Sometimes we think we don’t know how to pray, or who to pray to. Sometimes it helps if someone prays for us or with us.

Our Father God is always listening. We can pray to Him whoever we are, where ever we are and at any time, day or night – He will hear you.

Prayer doesn’t need to be formal, there are no right or wrong words to use. Just talk to God as you would your best friend, and don’t forget to listen for Him talking to you. You may not hear Him audibly, He shows Himself in different ways – through the Bible, through worship, through friends, through answers.

The best-known prayer is the prayer Jesus taught His disciples. It can be found in the Gospels – here it is as it is written in Matthew’s Gospel:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one
Matthew 6:9b-12

There are many other references to prayer in the Bible. The book of Psalms is a good place to start.

A few other references are: Colossians 4:2, Ephesians 6:18, James 5:16, 1 Peter 3:12, Philippians 4:6, Acts 10:31

Some of us prefer to pray alone, others find strength in meeting together for prayer, or finding a trusted person to pray for us.

You do not need to give any personal information if you do not wish to, but anything you do give will be treated in confidence. We look forward to hearing from you.
