Resources for Prayer

  • The Book of Common Prayer: This is a complete online version of the Book of Common Prayer.
  • Neighborhood Prayer Walk: Individuals are invited to take prayer walks in their neighborhood. This is a time of intentional prayer for our neighbors.

  • D365: The online d365, with its format of Pause, Listen, Think, Pray, Go, provides daily scripture readings, reflection, and prayer for young people (although adults will find it inspiring as well). Users can subscribe through email or download the app. The format is succinct and engaging, start-to-finish requiring approximately five minutes.
  • Pray As You Go: An online portal (or app) to pray the scriptures. Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. It’s aim is to help you to become more aware of God’s presence in your life, listen to and reflect on God’s word, and grow in your relationship with God.
  • Daily Prayer: This site offers the daily selections from Forward Day by Day, a liturgical calendar, and more resources to strengthen your faith and heart.
  • Episcopal Church Prayer Wall: Pray with us. Pray along with our community… or submit your own.
  • Prayer at the Sound of Bells, translated from prayers from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Germany, invites people to light a candle and pray for our current reality, for those most impacted by it, and for those ensuring our care, safety, and wellbeing. Churches could invite parishioners to pray this prayer at the same time on a designated day of the week.
  • A Pandemic Prayer Litany for Policy Officers and First Responders helps people of faith support with prayer those first responders who serve in our cities and towns to keep us safe. Consider praying this prayer each day, alone or with others in your household.
