New to prayer


God is there, waiting for us with arms open wide. Always ready to listen. Always ready to love us.
We know that God didn’t send this pandemic. But he is right here with us, sharing in the stress, pain and grief. He wants us to turn to him so we can find peace and hope.
Three guidelines are helpful for starting out in prayer:
Keep it Simple
You don’t have to find special words. Just share what is on your heart. Any time, any where. God is there.
When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray he taught them what we call the Lord’s prayer, simple enough to learn as a child but profound enough to sustain us for a lifetime. See Matthew 6:9-13 or Luke 11:1-4 or click here
Keep it Real
God is tough. You can share your pain and sorrow as well as your hopes and joys. Share your fear and anger, it’s ok. Pray for yourself, the ones you love, the world. God loves and cares for everyone and everything.
Keep it Up
Try and pray regularly. Maybe a few minutes at the start and the end of the day, or anytime in between, especially when there are moments of joy or stress.

Many of us are using the free app ‘Lectio 365’ to guide our daily prayers. Provides 10 minutes of prayer for the start of a day. Starting on Monday 27th April for 5 weeks the sessions will be based on ‘How to Pray’ by Pete Greig, one of the founders of the 23-7 prayer movement.

 You might want to come along to one of the many online services offered by churches  around Harrogate. Also see the section ‘What’s Next?’ below for more ideas.

Please share!
We want to encourage you to share your prayers, your prayer needs, anything you may have heard from God, your prayer images and also your answers to prayer. You can do this through our private Facebook group. If you’re not on Facebook you can share your prayers with us by emailing sayhello@harrogatehub.org
