Will you pray for me?
We would be happy to pray for you, for someone you know who is in need, or for a situation close to you heart. To ask for a prayer, you can:
– pop into church and leave a request in the prayer box (turn right as you come in, it’s on the table in the corner).
– let us know online, by emailing prayforme@stmarysbuckden.org.uk

You can link up with people praying all over the country and beyond by using the Church of England’s Daily Prayer site – click here to visit or subscribe.

What is prayer?
Prayer is conversation with God. Sometimes it’s helpful to use set words (there are some suggestions here in our leaflet of Prayers for Various occasions), but often it’s good to use your own words – or no words at all.

God always hears us when we pray, even if we’ve never talked to him before.  Often people pray for the first time when there’s a crisis, but we can also pray to God to say thank you for something good,  or even for no real reason, just ‘because’.

The Lord’s Prayer
This is the prayer that Jesus taught to his friends.

 Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy 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.
