Prayer Diary

This diary has been compiled to help us pray together for one another and our common concerns. It is available for download here and for viewing. You can print the list too, and take it with you. This online version allows for updates as new appointments and other changes are announced.

The Prayermate App now lists the Diocese in Europe, mirrors our Current Diary page and can be used on a daily basis in the same way.

To use the Prayermate App:  - clicking the link (from your phone/tablet browser) will enable you to install the app on your device. To pray for the diocese, click 'Add subject' in the app, go to 'Church Life' and then to 'European Churches', where you will find 'Diocese in Europe'.

The Anglican Communion and ICS prayer feeds are also found on the same page. On the 'World Mission and Bible Translation' page you can also find (amongst others), Diocesan partners USPG and CMS. You might also like to visit 'The Persecuted Church' page and, e.g., pray for Open Doors.


Using the Prayer Diary

Each chaplaincy, with the communities it serves, is remembered in prayer once a quarter,
following this weekly pattern:

  • Eastern Archdeaconry: Monday, Saturday
  • Archdeaconry of France: Tuesday, Saturday
  • Archdeaconry of Gibraltar: Wednesday, Saturday
  • Italy & Malta Archdeaconry: Friday
  • Archdeaconry of North West Europe: Thursday
  • Swiss Archdeaconry: Friday
  • Archdeaconry of Germany and Northern Europe
    • Nordic and Baltic Deanery: Monday 
    • Germany: Saturday

On Sundays, we pray for subjects which affect us all (e.g. reconciliation, on Remembrance
Sunday), or which have local applications for most of us (e.g. the local cathedral or cathedrals). This will include Diocesan Staff, Churches in Communion and Ecumenical Partners.

SUNDAY INTERCESSIONS should, by tradition, include prayer for Bishop Robert and the local Head of State by name. In addition, prayers may also include Bishop David (the Suffragan Bishop) and, among the heads of other states, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the leaders of other countries represented in the congregation.
