The Church of England, along with other churches in England and around the world, has a pattern of daily morning, evening and night prayer. Each day, and each time of day, uses different readings from the Bible, and different prayers.

Learn to pray.
In some ways, prayer is very easy: simply talk to God about the things around you, or going on inside you. But it is also useful to discover how others pray, and to be encouraged. Learn to Pray is based on advice in a book for children, but it makes a lot of sense at any age! Click here for practical suggestions and ideas to learn how to pray.
Light a candle – rejesus.
Lighting a candle has been a symbol of prayer for centuries. Light a candle is a web-based equivalent of what happens in many churches around the world. Light a candle on screen, and add your prayer. Others will then pray for your prayer request.
Daily visual prayer – rejesus.
The rejesus daily prayer has been written for anyone who has no experience of prayer, regular or otherwise. It is visual and interactive, and offers a different pattern of prayer for different times of day, and days of the month.
