For thinking...

What is a Breath Prayer? 

Prayers come in different forms. Prayer has the power to move us beyond ourselves into the world around us.

Jean Wise wrote about breath prayers: short, simple prayers that can be murmured, chanted, sung or spoken in one short breath. 

'Breath prayers can be helpful when you just don%u2019t know what to pray, like in times of spiritual dryness or difficulties. A breath prayer expresses dependence and trust in God that often produces a calm and a sense of nearness to the Lord'.  (

They can be as simple as:

Come Lord Jesus, come. 

I'm listening. 

Breathe on me, oh God. 

Strengthen me today, Lord. 

Let me know your peace. 

Teach me patience, loving God.

The Seasons of the Church Year.

The Christian year is divided into seasons, beginning with Advent and moving through to the Season on Easter.

Advent is the time of preparation leading up to the birth of Jesus. The colours of advent are purple or blue, with rose, being used for the third week which is the week of Joy.

Christmas is the season from Christmas day through to Epiphany. The colours are white and gold, representing the birth of Jesus.

After Epiphany is the season leading to Transfiguration Sunday. While the colour for this season is green, on Transfiguration Sunday white and gold are used to signify the import of this day.

Following this is Lent, the time of preparing for Easter. During this season the colours are purple and black, and the focus is on Jesus' journey from preaching widely to arriving in Jerusalem and the significant events of Holy Week.

Easter Day begins the season of Easter, 50 days from resurrection through to Pentecost. White and gold or yellow are used to symbolise this time of celebration for the life of Jesus.  The season of Easter finishes on Pentecost Sunday.

On Pentecost  Sunday we decorate our churches and selves with red and orange or gold representing the tongues of the spirit.

After Pentecost we enter the long season of Ordinary time, represented by the colour green. This long season takes the church through to the beginning of Advent (Christ the King Sunday in November) and is a time of growth, deepening of faith and learning to live in the way of Jesus.
