“A Year of Prayer…a Lifetime of Praying”
Things to note:
• Directions on creating a “prayer banner” for your congregation. See the “Ideas for Congregation” page.
• A weekly “breath prayer,” at the top of this page. What’s a breath prayer? A prayer – usually using a phrase from scripture – you can say in one breath. Copy it down and carry it with you, or commit it to memory – and say the prayer during the week – in line at the grocery store, stuck at a traffic light, or just over a cup of coffee! And check back next week for a new breath prayer!
• Daily devotions are also available in the box above – as well as devotions for the past year in the archive. Read…reflect…and pray!
