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.

Child of Bethlehem

O Holy One,
heavenly angels spoke to earthly shepherds
and eternity entered time in the child of Bethlehem.
Through the telling of the Christmas story,
let our temporal lives be caught up in the eternal
in that same child,
that we might join shepherds and all the heavenly host
in praising the coming of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

From Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, Christmas


  1. Enternity entered time! Joy to the world! Good news, Jesus! Amen

  2. Let me be caught up in the eternal! Eternity entered time - because of love - through the child in Bethlehem. Praise you Son of a David, Child of the Promise! You are worthy. Amen.

  3. Let praise and joy erupt from our lips!! Hallelujah, God has done it!!! Jesus, our glory, our salvation!!!

    “I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145:1-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬
