Where to start with prayer

Want to give prayer a go? You can pray anywhere and at any time but you may want to initially try to find somewhere quiet or close your eyes so you won't get distracted. You can pray out loud or in your head. Simply talk to God about whatever is on your mind.

Here are some ideas to help you get started - just fill in the blanks:

God, I'm feeling ________ today

Please help me with __________

I've made mistakes this week. I'm sorry for _________

Thank you God for ___________

You might also like to read or say the Lord's Prayer, which is what Jesus taught His followers to say when they asked how they should pray. 

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
