Praying for personal and community growth in our Diocese
Our vision is to see a generous & flourishing Diocese of Sheffield in 2025.
Our first priority is to develop a real reliance on the Spirit of God in prayer and worship and in the consecration of our lives, as individuals and communities.
We want to recruit and resource a Prayer Community of 2,025 members who make a daily commitment to:
- Say the Lord’s Prayer
- Read at least one Bible verse
- Say the Diocesan Vision Prayer
- Pray for Growth*
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen..
Diocesan Vision Prayer
Living God, Jesus calls his followers to seek first your Kingdom. Renew us as we make your love known; Release us to share freely together in mission; and Rejuvenate us to be fruitful in your service. Give us courage, wisdom and compassion, that strengthened with the grace of the Holy Spirit, we may, as the Diocese of Sheffield, both flourish and grow through Christ our Lord. Amen
Praying for Growth
Praying that more than 2.5% of the population of the diocese will be part of our worshipping community and that other Christian denominations will also grow in size.
