The House of Bishops commended the Prayers of Love and Faith, together with Pastoral Guidance, on 12 December 2023, for use from this Sunday within regular public worship or private prayer. You can read the full CofE press release in the information section below (1).
'The Prayers of Love and Faith are a resource for God’s pilgrim people as they journey on the way of Christ toward the fullness of his kingdom.'
The CofE Guidance document contains useful information to consider, for example,
Section 1.1.1 - Is there a process for a church to decide to offer the PLF?
Section 1.1.6 - How can a church explain their decision not to offer the prayers?
Some churches that wish to use the commended resources as part of regular services may choose to indicate this on their website. The Prayers of Love and Faith along with the Guidance document are now available on the Church of England website, see the information section below (2)(3).
