Prayer

Simple ideas to help YOU pray!

Book of Prayers:  these can help when we do not know what to say, and also widen our horizons.
TCP: a simple formula:
Thanksgiving: Confession (sorrow for own mistakes and failings): Petition (asking for others and for ourselves)
Five Finger Exercise:
Index finger (for those who guide us): middle finger (for all leaders locally, nationally): ring finger (those in need); little finger (ourselves); thumb (our nearest and dearest).
Silence and Symbols:
Some people find silence, a picture, music or a symbol such as a cross a helpful way to focus in prayer.  Take time to be still: focus on a candle or symbol or use a phrase e.g. ‘Be still and know that I am God’; wait and see what happens, end with the Lord’s Prayer.
