Prayer is at the heart of everything we do

Prayer is offered liturgically in our churches at times of worship, but prayer is also something we do as individuals in church, at home, at work, and at play.

Prayer focus: Water

We give thanks for the River Otter and all the wildlife it supports. May the river remain healthy and may we all respect the natural life that relies on it for survival.

We pray for a right use of water. Help us to see water as a precious commodity that should not be wasted, and show us the ways that we can reduce our consumption of water.

We pray for all those who do not have enough water to sustain life easily. We pray for those who have to walk to find water, those dependent on village wells or taps, and those who are most vulnerable to water shortages or contamination.

We pray for all those who are affected by flooding; those who live in homes vulnerable to floods; those who have had to leave their homes due to coastal erosion and sea level rise.

“But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
John 4:14
