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.

God of Glory Shines

God of glory,
your splendor shines from a manger in Bethlehem,
where the Light of the world is humbly born
into the darkness of human night.
Open our eyes to Christ's presence in the shadows of our world,
so that we, like him, may become beacons of your justice,
and defenders of all for whom there is no room. Amen.

From Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, Christmas


  1. God of glory, your splendor shines as the light of the world broke open the darkness of this world. Open my eyes to Christ's presence in the shadows of this life. Make me also a beacon of justice for those who need hope and healing. Thank you l, Jesus, that you are the light of the world! Amen.

  2. “because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:78-79‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    Jesus, fill me with your light so I may be your light to the world! Jesus, I pray you'd shine bright in our nation this Christmas! Shine bright to draw all people to yourself! Shine bright to awaken the hearts of your followers! Shine bright in me and all who love you! Light of the world, we love and enjoy your light!!

  3. “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Forgive me Lord. Amen

    1. Jesus, savior. Open my eyes. Make me like you. Amen
