Praying Set Prayers

Praying Set Prayers

One of the distinctive things about Anglican liturgies is that we repeat responses and prayers from one service to the next. Praying at all is foreign to many of our students but even those who are from another denomination may find this practice strange.

In this video, the Archbishop of Canterbury tells a story of a time ‘set prayers’ were exactly what he needed, and discusses why we use them. Using this video in Chapel also has the advantage that you could introduce the whole idea of there being an “Archbishop of Canterbury”! But it’s also essentially about praying any way you can – “just pray.”
