Each new edition of the Methodist Prayer Handbook connects Christians from different times, places and walks of life. Classic prayers are interwoven with new contributions from Methodists across the districts and around the world. Arranged as a 31-day prayer cycle, the Handbook also includes a daily lectionary with a suggested hymn (from Singing the Faith) to accompany and guide you through the year.
Eminently suitable for individuals as well as groups, churches are free to use the prayers in public worship and reproduce up to ten in newsletters during the year, providing acknowledgement is given.
A WORLD TRANSFORMED offers simple prayers of intercession and thanksgiving as well as beautiful poetic reflections and aids to devotion, which help us call upon God's transforming love to be made active in the lives of children, women and men across the world.
In prayer we create space for God to speak to us and hear the deepest longings of our hearts. We are drawn closer into the loving purposes of God when we pray and that can only lead us to act for the transformation of God's world.
As you use this year's Prayer Handbook, you are praying for and with the whole worldwide Methodist family. We pray that you may know something of God's transforming love in your own life and that all our prayers would be caught up in God's purposes for the transformation of the whole world.
