A house of prayer

Here are some ideas for prayers at home.



Say a short prayer of thanksgiving before meals. Each person in the household can take turns in saying a prayer.

Some examples are:

For what we are about to receive may God help us to be truly thankful. Amen.

Creator God, we give thanks for the food we will share, always mindful of those who will not eat their fill today. Help us to work hard to make the world a fairer place. Amen

Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise him all creatures here below,
Praise him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

For this food for our journey,
we thank you, loving God.
For this time of friendship,
we thank you, loving God.
For all the blessings of this life,
We thank you, loving God.

For families, friends and food
we thank you Lord.

For this food, thank you Lord
For ....... who prepared it, thank you Lord
For those who produced it, thank you Lord
And to you who created everything we need, thank you Lord. Amen 


Visitors' Prayers

If you have visitors to stay, put a handwritten or printed out prayer on their bedside table.

Have a visitors' book in which, rather than 'comments' you ask them to write a prayer before they leave. 


Fridge Prayers

Stick a favourite prayer up on the fridge door, then each time you visit the fridge, you can say that prayer. (It need not be 'Please help me to choose the slimline yoghurt, not the cream cake' !)
