Welcome to PCCT Prays Together
Prayer is an important part of our life at PCCT and particularly in these uncertain times, we need prayer to help us feel heard, comforted, supported, encouraged, and inspired. During Worship in Prayers of the People, we raise up our concerns and pray as a community. On Fridays, we continue praying as a community by praying individually anywhere and anytime, knowing that others at PCCT are praying with us for the world and for each other. On Thursdays, an e-blast reminds us that the next day is Friday and contains a link to our portion of the website that is filled with suggestions to get us started. We hope that prayer may find a special place in your daily life and that you will join us in prayer on Fridays.
Below, you will find a selection of readings to support you in your prayer life. The first section contains suggested Prayers, followed by selections from Scripture. This will lead to Words of Grace, Peace and Comfort containing poetry, hymns, quotes, sayings, etc. If you want to go beyond what you have already experienced, explore Want To Go Deeper? There you will find Questions to ponder and Prayer Practices to try. Hopefully, all these suggestions will lead to introspection, comfort, peace and a closer relationship with God.
AFTER LENT 2019: Blessings for the Journey
Lent is over and Jesus has risen! As Easter people, it is time to begin our journey with Christ in new ways and on new roads. Although we may not know exactly where we are going, we can step out in faith with the assurance that God is with us every step of the way. Hopefully, these selections will offer you hope, encouragement, and support as you begin a new journey with the Risen Lord. There are two prayers, two versions of the 23rd Psalm, a poem by Kathleen Norris, and questions to ponder. The new prayer practice is an expansion of our gratitude practice into “A Daily Examination of Grace”. Here is an Irish Blessing to send you on your way!
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall softly upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
