Some familiar prayers

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.


Almighty God,
unto whom all hearts be open,
all desires known,
and from whom no secrets are hid:
cleanse the thoughts of our hearts
by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit,
that we may perfectly love Thee,
and worthily magnify Thy holy Name:
through Christ our Lord.
Amen.


Glory be to the Father, 
and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, 
is now, 
and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.


The peace of God,
which passes all understanding,
keep our hearts and minds
in the knowledge and love of God,
and of his Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
And the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son,
and the Holy Spirit,
be upon us this day,
and for evermore.
Amen.


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with us all, evermore.
Amen.

Monday Reflections - We pray for LGBT people

Below you will find a series of resources to help you pray and reflect each day.  There is a different theme for each day and we've mixed photos and a few words to help you pray.  You may wish to pray at your desk at work, at home before you go or at the end of the day.  We hope you find these resources useful as you make time for God in your daily life.
