Could you write for the prayer handbook?

PHB writing image 2016Deadline for submissions: 4 December 2017

You may already be familiar with the United Reformed Church’s (URC) prayer handbook. It's our perennially popular collection of prayers and meditations from prayer writers across the denomination. As with the past two years, we are continuing with our bid to widen the authorship of the prayer handbook and are, once again, inviting prayer writers from every part of the denomination – and beyond – to consider submitting prayers for the 2019 prayer handbook.

There is a general theme – of Seasons of the Spirit – to inspire you – and writers are also particularly encouraged to reflect on the dynamics of praise and lament in the Psalms that feature in the 2019 lectionary readings.

If you are interested in writing for the 2019 handbook, please read the full guidelines for further information, and, if you have further queries please email us.

We hope prayers will come in from all corners of the United Reformed Church and are actively encouraging prayer writers of all ages, all traditions, all nationalities, to submit prayers for possible inclusion on the 2019 handbook. If you write prayers, write one for us!

The 2018 prayer handbook, On Eagles’ Wings is now available, for just £6.50, through our online store.
