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 ‘Hidden Treasures’, the 2023/2024 Methodist Prayer Handbook.

All our powers we surrender to you, O God, and our whole will to yours. All our designs we submit to your design and all our purposes to yours. Amen.Phoebe Palmer, Methodist Evangelist (1807-1874)
God in hiding, waiting in the dark, blowing over the formless void, speak a word of light and life, we pray, and make something out of this nothing once again.
God hidden in plain sight, divine treasure to be found in seeds and soils, yeast and dough, birds and trees, hunger and thirst, enemy and neighbour, bread and wine, open our eyes, give sight to our blindness and make us to see you once again.
God hiding in me like water, underground rising, seeping out, bursting out, pouring out, come Holy Spirit come and make me full to overflowing once again.
