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.

Welcoming Christ with Praise

O God of Elizabeth and Mary,
you visited your servants with news of the world's redemption
in the coming of the Savior.
Make our hearts leap with joy,
and fill our mouths with songs of praise,
that we may announce glad tidings of peace,
and welcome the Christ in our midst. Amen.

from Revised Common Lectionary prayers, Year A, Fourth Week of Advent


  1. Make my heart leap with joy and fill my mouth with song! Good news, Jesus is here! Messiah! Amen

  2. Let my mouth sing songs of praise! Let my heart announce glad tidings of peace! Let my life welcome Christ in our midst! The Savior has come!
