2 This prayer diary contains some suggestions for those who find it helpful to have a list of things to pray for, but also provides a rhythm of prayer that we hope will encourage everyone to pray together creatively for the future of the Church of Scotland. Each day of the week (excluding weekends) has a focus: Monday Personal Tuesday Local Wednesday - Regional Thursday National Friday - Global There is a different theme for each of the four weeks in the cycle to focus our thoughts and prayers and develop a rhythm of prayer. As part of this rhythm of prayer you may feel that it is important to include elements of confession. This could be done as part of the personal focus on Mondays, or as individual or corporate prayer throughout the suggested themes, especially if there are areas where you feel the Church needs to seek forgiveness. We have also suggested having two parts to each day s prayer: Part 1 Listen to God: There will be a question each day to help you think and reflect. You may simply wish to listen to God in the silence or actively look over your day with God s help. Before speaking to God, it is good to be quiet and listen to how God is leading. There will be some instructions or questions each day that may be helpful. Part 2 Speak to God: You don t have to speak out your prayers after you have reflected, but this time will help you focus your thoughts and allow us to pray for the many different issues facing the Church now and as we look to the future.
