Prayers with the Archbishop

The Archbishop invites you to join him in prayer today. 

Some topical prayers said in Bishopthorpe Chapel include prayers for peace for peoples of the Middle East and Zimbabwe, for world leaders, for military personnel and those caught in conflict and for higher purpose.

The Archbishop of York has also  recorded a track entitled 'For this reason' which is available from the Album "Rhythms of Fire" by the Psalm Drummers. The words are from Ephesians 3:14-19. 

Alternatively you could choose from the Church of England's Common Worship at a time that suits you,  Morning and Evening Prayers.

 If you are looking for a place to pray, you may wish to find a quiet place to reflect and pray on your own, or have you considered visiting your local church?  To see where your nearest Anglican church is, please visit the Church of England website for more information.
