What Is prayer?
Prayer is a communication process that allows us to talk to God.
There is no special way to pray. No special position to be in. You can pray with others or alone. You can pray in church, at work, walking down the street, in the park or on the bus. Anybody can pray, anytime, anywhere. God is always listening.
Each week our congregations pray for those living and working in particular areas within both parishes. The details of the parts of the community to be included in our prayers for the month of d May are listed below:

Please include these people in your prayers.
We should remember that Jesus taught his disciples how to pray using this prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name:
thy kingdom come; they will be done; on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever and ever. Amen
