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.

“As I begin this prayer, God is here.
Around me, in my sensations, in my thoughts and deep within me.  I pause for a moment, and become aware
of God’s life-giving presence.”
