Prayer Diary 2023

The Diocesan Prayer Diary continues to focus on the diocese's mission in the context of our 27 deaneries, as they implement mission action plans formulated during the Shaping for Mission process. We also remember the many varied roles and ministries across our diocese whilst, as People of Hope, remaining mindful too of the implications of Covid-19, both locally and globally. Let us also continue to pray for those suffering in Syria & Turkey, for the people of Ukraine suffering grievously, for all who take decisions around the world and for the people and leaders of Russia.

  • You may also wish to use the Anglican Cycle of Prayer which includes daily prayer for the entire Anglican Communion.
  • Our DVE team have produced a useful pdf with ideas and links for prayer during this time.

To receive the Prayer Diary every week via email please contact Denise Keen. We are most grateful to those who submit contributions for the diary. Thank you for your support and if you have any further comments, suggestions or prayer requests please do get in touch.

Diocesan Day of Prayer - Wednesday 19th & Thursday 20th April 2023

On behalf of the diocesan team, we want to say a heartfelt thank you to all those who took part in the Day of Prayer this week. As part of the evaluation process, we look forward to hearing about the impact the Day of Prayer has had on our deaneries – please email Denise Keen by Friday 26th May, with your thoughts and experiences, and do continue to let us know of answers to prayer; and suggestions for future events.

If your deanery was unable to engage this time, we would also value your feedback as to how we might accommodate your prayer needs and encourage you to join us in the future.
