These short services of Prayer are adapted from a variety of sources by Revd David Owen including The Methodist Worship Book and The Benedictine Prayer Book amongst others. They offer a structured way to hold short services each morning and evening, either by yourself or with others, and with some variety. They can also be used in conjunction with The Methodist Prayer Handbook.

Do not be afraid


Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. Joel 2:22 (NIV)
