Welcome to the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer
Prayer is the foundation and the wellspring of all that we do. And yet it can so easily be neglected or can decay into rehearsing a few familiar petitions and thanksgivings. But the sustaining rhythm of being present with God is our duty and joy; not simply for ourselves but praying for the common good; better together.
In our cycle of prayer, we do not single out individuals but pray for the whole body of Christ called to serve in a particular place.
Prayer connects us. It makes a difference in all our lives. So as disciples together in the Diocese of Liverpool, let’s use this cycle to journey together in prayer and with the sustaining strength of God.
Our Diocesan Prayer
by your grace, we long to see
more people knowing Jesus,
and more justice in your world.
Help us to live as your disciples in the power of the Spirit
and to work to your praise and glory.
