Prayer Diary

We aim to publish the diocesan Prayer Diary on the 20th day of each month

There are four components to the Prayer Diary.

Monthly Theme – mirroring themes from the renewed Vision and Strategic Framework for the Diocese or season of the year.  This will include content offering information and guidance to stimulate prayer.  It is a prayer focus for the Friday of each week.

Diary (as a calendar) – including churches, schools, the Cathedral, chaplaincies, along with some key meetings/groups.  This is what keeps it local and integrates with a wider context for prayer.

Details – specific requests for prayer, which I hope will reflect current and pressing concerns linked with the Diary page; generally coming from parish clergy, but we will try to include other requests, including the process to fill the Vacancy in See during 2024.

Jottings – a page of guidance, news and resources mirroring the theme for the month, and highlighting forthcoming editions, with the idea to deepen our prayer life collectively.  This included suggestions on leading intercessions (January 2024), could share invitations to prayer gatherings, and other things you would like to be included.

I’d be very interested to take your suggestions on sources, favourite quotes on prayer, as well as thoughts on the new structure/content.  I hope that the design elements can be developed further during the coming months, too.

Graeme Pringle writes:

"When I first started my diocesan communications role in 2011, my first task was to refresh the diocesan Prayer Diary.  The format of the Prayer Diary has remained unchanged for eleven years, and I'm very grateful to Anna Laycock who has faithfully compiled it every month for more than half of that time.

I'm also grateful to Clive Hicks who has kindly agreed to take over the Prayer Diary.  No doubt Clive will want to refresh the format, and I look forward to seeing his first edition in February.

In the meantime, the December and January editions are somewhat shorter while Clive prepares for February."
