How to use this Virtual Prayer Room

Below you will find a Daily Devotional video - watch and listen to the encouraging messages from our members.
Use the prayer wheel below that to guide you as you spend time in prayer - Start with praise, then surrender, then confession, and so on. Spend as much or as little time as you can in each section.
As you are working your way around the prayer wheel, you might like to have some quiet reflective music in the background.
Below that is a video which guides you through an hour of prayer - use as little or much as you want.
Afterwards you could spend time in The Psalms - a wonderful way to pray to God.
To finish - listen to the video of the Lord's Prayer spoken in 13 languages. 
Remember, throughout this week, this page will be updated daily with a message and a video to guide you. 

Below, we hear from District Superintendent, Rev Andrew Dougherty - 

Without air, I’m gone within a few minutes!  Maybe one of the reasons God made us that way is to help us understand how utterly dependent we are on Him. The Hymn Writer James Montgomery wrote these profound words, “Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath, The Christian’s native air.” I believe, where there is authentic spiritual life, there will also be a focus on prayer.  If our prayer life is deficient, this affects our whole life.  Prayer is as vital to our spiritual health as breathing is to our physical health.

Please sign up your commitment to pray in the sign up sheet below. 

As well as making the most of the Prayer Room, please join us virtually when you can.

We'll be meeting from 10:30 - 11:30 am & 7:30 - 8:30 pm (Monday - Saturday) and 7:30 - 8:30 pm only (Sunday).

Every Blessing,
Rev Andrew Dougherty
Southern District Superintendent

Daily Devotional video

Mark 14: 7 Jesus says "The poor will always be with you" - how does that challenge us today?

Below please find a video which guides you through an hour of prayer. Thanks to St. Mark's church for permission to use.

Used with permission from


Psalm 91 - God is Our Protector, Psalm 46 - God always helps us, Psalm 23 - The Lord is my Shepherd.
Reading the Psalms helps us to see the many facets of God and His relationship with us.


To finish, watch this video of the Lord's prayer being spoken - each line in a different language.
