Prayer for the Nation

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and senior church leaders have called a month of Prayer for the Nation during the second lockdown.   The suggestion is that as many of us as possible unite to do this at 6pm each day.   These prayers and themes in the following booklet are offered by them as tools and suggestions to help.   Click here to view or download.


Prayer means launching out of the heart towards God; it means lifting up one’s eyes, quite simply, to heaven, a cry of grateful love, from the crest of joy or the trough of despair; it’s a vast, supernatural force, which opens out my heart, and binds me close to Jesus.
St Therese of Lisieux

Pray with confidence, based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray.

St Loius de Montfort (1673-1716)

In prayer, may we come to know ourselves and to meet our maker;
to rejoice in God’s goodness, to share in God’s life,
and to be enfolded in God’s love. Amen

Julian of Norwich (1342-1420)

Diocesan Prayer Diary

Using the Diocesan Prayer Diary means that on each day all of us across the Diocese can pray for the same individuals. We don’t need to know the individuals for whom we are praying, we just need to know they are our fellow disciples in Christ, and they need to know that we are holding them by name before God.
