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.

Abba, You Visited Your People

We bless you, Abba, Father,
for you have visited your people
in one like us in all things but sin,
and in human fragility you have revealed
the face of divinity.
Gather into your arms
all the peoples of the world,
so that in your embrace
we may find blessing, peace,
and the fullness of our inheritance
as your daughters and sons. Amen.

From Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, Christmas


  1. Praise you Father - thank for sending Jesus to visit your people. Lord, gather us in your arms, that we might find the fullness of our inheritance.

  2. Jesus, human, fragile, sinless divine Savior. Glory laud and honor are yours. Bless the Lord o my soul. Amen

  3. Father, thank you, thank you. I settle into your embrace now. I trust you, Father, Jesus, Spirit, to keep me, hold me, and show me all things about the fullness of my inheritance. I am yours.
