Prayer

Prayer at sundown at Chanctonbury Ring

Prayer is the beginning, the middle and the end. It is the foundation upon which we build our life our Christ, and it is the final breathe we breath as we make our final journey home. Prayer is the intimate conversation we hold with our Father and is the ground of our soul on which we learn to listen.

SSC Night prayers are very simple. They require three things:

  1. You take your time – be intentionally slow
  2. You find a special location – be alone in separate place
  3. You turn up

Below are a series of posts (one for each day of the week) in which you will find a simple order of prayer and contemplation that includes:

  1. A psalm
  2. A Gospel
  3. A period of silence
  4. A concluding prayer

We’ll be publishing further weekly prayers, each set centred around one chapter of a Gospel that we invite you to pray with us. Through praying the scriptures the Word of God begins to form within us. Each night is designed to take around 30 minutes and can be entered into alone or in a group.
