“If prayer stands as the place where God and human beings meet, then I must learn about prayer.” – Philip Yancey
Prayer is at the centre of the spiritual life of a Christian. It is connecting and communicating with God. It is the essence of our relationship with God. Prayer is a privilege, not a duty. Like all good things it requires some discipline.
The Anglican Book of Common Prayer and the Book of Alternative Services provide many useful prayer resources for corporate prayer in worship services and personal prayer.
However, beyond worship services there are as many ways of praying as there are individuals. Our personalities and life experiences influence how we pray, and there are many different Types of Christian Prayer.
