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.

A Prayer for Christmas Morning

The day of joy returns, Father in Heaven and crowns another year with peace and good will.
Help us rightly to remember the birth of Jesus that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds and the worship of the wise men.
Close the doors of hate and open the doors of love all over the world and 
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing that Christ brings and teach us to be merry with clean hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children
And the Christmas evening bring us to our bed with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake.

By Henry Van Dyke


  1. Abba thank you for the Word... your Son... my Lord of light. Grant me to lay down tonight and every night grateful, forgiving and forgiven. Jesus, I love you with every ounce of my being. Clean my heart, continuously, fit me for your service. Amen

  2. Help me to rightly remember the birth of Jesus today and the joy and hope it brings to the whole world! Awaken me with pure happiness at the realization that I am your beloved child. Allow me to sleep tonight with the knowledge and truth that I am fully forgiven and am therefore free to forgive all around me. Fill me with your Spirit today - that I might open myself up to your complete love - and let it overflow from me to others. I receive - I worship - I adore you Jesus. Happy Birthday! Amen.
