One evening I was looking at other websites on prayer and I happened to come upon one with dozens and dozens of prayers that you are welcome to use for your own use or with a prayer group.
This British site is called Faith and Worship, and the little prayer here in the featured image is an example of the many poetic prayers you can find there. The site is the work of a prolific Methodist minister who is generous with the ways we may use his work.
There is so much there that I’m at a loss as to where to point to. If you go to the homepage that I just linked to, you’ll see Celtic prayers, blessings, and history… free online Bible study… praying to God for guidance, prayers for the elderly and the lonely… and prayers for the start of the week. That’s just on one section of the page. There are links to much more. Here’s an image link to that homepage. Take a look!
Some of the pages I went to were:
- Christian quotes, which included quotes from many different eras
- Lenten Prayers he wrote
- The About Page explains how the site came to be
- Links to quite a few other sites of interest… this warmed my librarian’s heart and kept me up late!
There’s a lot more, but since he gives permission to use his prayers, here is one on Divine love that I was drawn to:
flows like a stream
into the ocean of your Grace.
encircles this world,
displays your faithfulness.
is patient and kind,
brings wholeness and true peace.
is all we desire
to heal our brokenness.
As all things pass
and fade away
