"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
- I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Prayer is an essential part of the Christian life, and this page is designed to aid you in your life of prayer. Below, you will find virtual prayer resources from the Anglican tradition. Much of our prayers come from the Book of Common Prayer, and if you have one, you can follow along. If you don't have a BCP, you can purchase one here or stop by the church and get one for free.
Daily Prayer on Soundcloud
Everyday (except Sundays), members of the Trinity community provide a recording of daily morning, evening, and nighttime prayer. You can follow along with the prayers with your Book of Common Prayer, or simply meditate as you listen to the words of scripture and the prayers of the church.
Five Minute Meditation
Meditation and contemplative prayer are important elements of the Christian prayer tradition going back all the way to the early disciples and developed by Christian mystics and desert monastics. You don't always need words to pray, in fact, sometimes, silences says it all. Take five minutes to reconnect and center yourself by clicking the link below.
Short Morning Prayer
It's sometimes hard to find time to pray. Even Jesus had this problem. But if you've got five minutes, you can follow along with this short form of morning prayer from our Book of Common Prayer. You can even pray while drinking your morning coffee.
Short Evening Prayer
As the day comes to a close, you are invited to take a few minutes to reconnect with the God who walked beside you all day long, even if you didn't notice.
The Holy Rosary
No, we aren't Roman Catholic, but yes, we pray the Holy Rosary. Each rosary prayer consists of a series of Hail Mary prayers and the Lord's Prayers said while meditating on a period of the life of Christ as revealed in scripture. You can learn more about the practice by clicking here, and you can get a feel for the practice by clicking the pray button below.
Pray Daily with the Venite App
In the Anglican tradition (the world-wide fellowship that Trinity is a part of), prayers are said three to four times a day from the Book of Common Prayer. The good folks at Venite have made this tradition accessible to everyone and user friendly at that. If you'd like to incorporate the daily rhythm of prayer into your schedule, click below to get started.
