Prayer Resources

Praying at all times and for all things is the way we are told to live; and the good news is that prayer is real and it works! During this time of great challenge and anxiety we are called to prayer. Download these recommended apps from your preferred app store or click on the link for further information.

Lectio 365 is an easy-to-use way of meditating on the Bible that's been used by Christians for centuries. Each day we read the same passage twice, expectant that God will speak through it into our lives.

Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to help you pray whenever you find time.

Time to pray is a traditional worship app with everything you need. Follow a simple pattern of day or night prayer that varies according to the season and day of the week. It has guidance on sustaining a pattern of regular prayer.

or access The Church of England's Daily Hope Line on 0800 804 8044

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
