“The Word became Flesh and made his dwelling among us”
Prayer and worship should be relevant to your life and to what is foremost in your
mind; it needs to be in tune with your life and what you see going on around yourself
locally and internationally:
Examples of a simple Act of Worship
Light candle – ‘In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’
Close your eyes and think of someone who has helped you or shown you a kindness
over the last year.
Give yourself time to think.
Prompt yourself to say ‘thank you’ from your heart for that person.
Challenge yourself to do the same for someone else today.
Say a Prayer.
It doesn’t have to take a long time. It doesn’t have to be clever or impressive.
Just a simple prayer is enough if the day is busy and time short. Other days you
may decide to do more. The main thing is that we all acknowledge, every day, as a
community, that we are centred on Christ and his Gospel - Being faithful to this
requirement for daily prayer will bear fruit over time.
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people.
As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them
and give thanks”
1st Timothy 2:1
