The Thursday Morning Prayer Group invites you to join Ramsey Church in daily prayer: Choose a time of day, a length of time, and a particular place in which to pray daily; the repetition of these elements helps to create a supportive rhythm in our prayer life.

“Dear Lord help me to be open to you
for this time as I put aside the cares of this world.
Fill my thoughts with your peace, your love.” – SacredSpace.ie
