Prayers

 

Current Prayers are listed below. Or, see our comprehensive list for a prayer that's not listed here.

Our hope with these resources is that God is glorified in our prayer, that as we pray, we are conscious of praying with the whole Church and for the whole of creation, and that our hearts, minds, and senses—our whole being—is lifted up, quieted down, and mindful of God's great and overflowing love for us.
