Praying together

The Archbishop’s of Canterbury and York have called the world to pray for the
coming of God’s Kingdom during the period from Ascension to Pentecost.  While each church in the Deanery of Brent offer regular opportunities for prayer—during these days some additional events are being held.  You are all welcome to attend any or all of these as we pray for God’s Kingdom.

A list of all prayer events in Brent Deanery, including one here at St Anne’s can be found here Thy Kingdom Come Flyer

Messages from the Archbishops about praying for the Election Archbishops’ General Election 2017 pastoral letter 6 May 2017

Prayer is at the heart of our relationship with God and it vital to our Christian faith. We are called to pray without ceasing.  The foundation of all Christian life is and has to be prayer.  This is simply because being a Christian is about being a person in a relationship with God, and prayer is the conversation that helps us develop and strengthen that relationship.

Pray every day.  Work out your own way of doing so, and your own pattern and amount of time.  Simply pray your thanks, pray for others and the world, for yourself and to be silent before God.  Like any relationship sometimes you will need to tell God things, , sometimes you will be too tired or sad to do anything else but sigh with God, and we also need to make space in our prayer to listen to what God is saying to us.  However you pray – make time for it daily. Take time to reflect on the blessings of your life and be thankful.
