Time to think? Time to Pray? from the Diocese of Suffolk 


Using the Lord’s Prayer from the Diocese of Suffolk 


A Circle Prayer

To introduce it:

Imagine yourself standing in a sphere of light, small or big.

The shadows and fears are outside. Perhaps the fear is pressing inwards today.

The prayer invites you to imagine, to ask God, to bring calm into your sphere and then hope which will expand the sphere, and then love - God’s love of you, your love reaching out to others. Which do you need most of today - calm, hope or love?


Circle me O God with your loving presence,

Keep fear without and calm within

Keep fear without and hope within

Keep fear without and love within

Today and always.
