Daily Worship

Here are some links to resources for prayer and reflection that you can use at home. It can be helpful to find a rhythm knowing you are joining with many, many others praying with you around the world.

Morning and Evening Prayer

This printable Midweek Worship is a shorter pattern of simple prayers and readings for each day.

The Church of England's 'Daily Prayer' app, which includes the full services and lectionary readings for each day.

Midday Prayer

These Midday Prayers are given by the Mother's Union and include an Easter theme.

Many Christians across the world are also praying The Lord's Prayer every day at midday.

Personal Prayers

If you do not have much time or find a 'set service' harder to follow each day, here are some well known prayers that you can draw on when you pray.

Reflections

Here are some reflections kindly written and shared by Anne Constantine. If you write or find something helpful at this time, please do send it across.

If you use Facebook, on Ely Cathedral's page there are also some excellent daily reflections called 'Alone Together', written by Canon Jessica Martin.
