Prayer of the Day
Praying daily is one of the commitments of A Methodist Way of Life. We hope the prayers below are helpful in your prayer life. They are kindly submitted by Methodist volunteers from across the globe, who offered them for ‘A Place for All’, the 2021/2022 Methodist Prayer Handbook.

O Lord our God, you rule over all things and you accomplish all things. You never remove your hands from your works, nor ever shall. Guide us, we pray, with the power and the wisdom with which, from the beginning, you have loved and made all things; through Christ our Lord. Amen.Julian of Norwich (c.1343-c.1416)
We praise you, God, who came to us in your word, for the richness of language, dialect and idiom. Thank you for the ability to learn and use language – both mother-tongue and others – and for how living a new language leads to deeper understanding of ourselves, others and you. Above all, we rejoice in the language of your love, beyond words. Amen.
Molwn di, Dduw, a ddaeth atom yn dy Air, am gyfoeth iaith, tafodiaith a phriod-ddull. Diolch am y gallu i ddysgu a defnyddio iaith – mamiaith ac eraill – ac am sut mae byw iaith newydd yn arwain at ddealltwriaeth ddyfnach o’n hunain, eraill a thi. Uwchlaw dim, llawenhawn yn iaith dy gariad di, iaith y tu hwnt i eiriau. Amen.Jennifer Hurd, Synod Cymru Chair
