Prayers

 

A large part of a monk’s day is spent in prayer, both public and private, and in meditation. This is the primary purpose of the lives of contemplative monks and nuns as we continue our daily seeking for God. We trust that if we are faithful to this calling then, with God’s grace and mercy, we will build a deeper relationship with God and with our fellow human beings.

Our prayers are not for our own benefit, but primarily to praise God and to intercede for the “needs of the World and all its peoples”.

Accordingly, at our Community Masses we pray especially for the events that are taking place in the World and for the people affected by them.

Some people contact us directly to ask us to pray for them or someone they love; or for a situation that is affecting them. We are happy to do this.

Accordingly, if there is someone or something that you would like us to pray for then please complete the request form below and send it to us. 

Please do not feel that you need to give us any more details than you wish. A request for prayers for “someone who is ill”, or “for someone I’m worried about”; for “an intention” or “a situation that’s concerning me” is sufficient.

We do not need to know more details unless you wish to tell us.

This offer is open to everyone. It does not matter which faith you believe in, or if you don’t have any belief at all. For us the most important factor is that God values us all equally and loves every one of us with the same unconditional love, regardless of what we have done or have not done in our lives.
