Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

Morning Prayer

from several prayer books (many of them Anglican)

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever. Amen.


  1. It is you, Lord, that sets our hearts on fire with love. Not my own effort but rather the light of your presence. Fill me with love for you and others. You are light. You are love. Fill me up. Amen.

  2. Yes Lord as I rejoice set my soul on fire. You are an all consuming fire. Consume me. Amen

  3. Set my heart on fire with love for you !

  4. Lord, you are light. You alone have the power to set hearts on fire! Light my heart, Lord, that it may burn with passion for you.
