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.

Prayer for Wakefulness

Christ, our God, 

whom humble shepherds worshiped at a manger, 

you are holy and most high, merciful and mighty. 

Startle us to wakefulness, 

that we may rejoice in your new and glorious dawn, 

and, in your holy name, 

act to mend this suffering world. Amen. 

From Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, Christmas


  1. Startle me to wakefulness that I might rejoice in you - always and forever: Amen.

  2. Lord, wake me up! Completely!!! Amen.

    Wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up all you sleepers
    Stand up, stand up
    Stand up all you dreamers
    Hands up, hands up
    Hands up all believers
    Take up your cross, carry it on
