Modern Prayer Resources

Inclusive prayers, psalms and canticles
Written by Archbishop Jonathan Blake

A modern 'Lord's Prayer'

May Love be revered
May Unity come
Good will be done
That earth may evolve into heaven
May we work hard today for our daily bread
And may our sins be forgiven
As we forgive those
Who have sinned against us
And may we not fall into temptation
But be delivered from evil
For we believe in justice, truth and peace
For ever and ever
Amen

A modern 'Gloria'

Glory to Love in the purest
And peace to all forms of life
We praise
We bless
We adore
We glorify
We give thanks for all that is good
Love, justice, truth and peace
Kindness and mercy
Good people, from all ages
Faiths and cultures
Our inspiration and our light
You take away the sins of the world
Embolden us
You take away the sins of the world
Guide us
You are held in the greatest respect
Inspire us
For you are to be revered
Honoured and remembered
Shining lights, urging goodness on
Through every generation.
Amen.
