Year of Prayer

It is a Jubilee Year in 2025 and in preparation, we have been asked to participate in a year of prayer. In getting back to basics, we have been asked to focus on the Our Father...

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.

We Dare To Say

The Bishops’ Conference has developed a resource for the Year of Prayer called “We Dare To Say”,
with a series of resources and materials related to the Our Father. You can check it out below.

Teach Us To Pray

The Vatican have also published a resource called “Teach Us To Pray” about Living the Year of Prayer
ahead of the Jubilee Year in 2025. You can view it below.

We have also created a Creative Prayer resource, suitable for both children and adults to help you find new ways to pray.

Ways you can pray

There are lots of different ways you can pray. Here are a couple of resources courtesy of the Diocese
of Hexham and Newcastle about Silence and Stillness and Lectio Divina.

Our Father: Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer

Pope Francis has written a book about the Lord's Prayer. In it, he calls for courage, asks us to "dare to say the Our Father", and "help one another to dare". You can purchase the book below.
