Pete Greig has been teaching on prayer and involved in a non-stop prayer movement, 24-7 Prayer, since founding it over 20 years ago.
He is an Ambassador for the NGO Tearfund and an associate tutor at St Mellitus Theological College, London, and also leads a large church in Guildford called Emmaeus Road – as well as being an award-winning author.
His latest book, How To Pray, is based on Jesus’ teaching on how to pray which has also been compiled into the recited prayer we all know as The Lord’s Prayer. The four ‘movements’ of The Lord’s Prayer are Pause, Rejoice, Ask and Yield and Pete subdivides this outline into 12 concise, accessible “how to” chapters as follows:
1. Prayer Everywhere – why pray?
2. Keeping it Simple – starting out in prayer
3. Slowing and Centring – how to be still before God
4. Adoration – how to worship God
5. Petition – how to ask God
6. Intercession – how to ask God for others
7. Unanswered prayer – how to deal with disappointment
8. Contemplation – how to pray without words
9. Listening – how to hear God
10. Confession and Reconciliation – how to get right with God
11. Spiritual warfare – how to exercise spiritual authority
12. Amen.Read more...

Weobley Taizé team — Revd Sean Semple and Carole Page with singers and instrumentalists
There were more than 30 seated in a friendly horseshoe formation in the spacious chancel area of Weobley Church, for the new venture of a Taizé-style service on Advent Sunday afternoon.
A singing group provided the range of musical textures which are a feature of Taizé music. The service featured the lighting and placing of candles, emphasising the Advent theme, and there was also a time during the music when anyone could go forward to kneel and receive prayer for physical healing or any aspect of wholeness.Read more...
This special service reflects the unique but simple meditative singing popularised by Taizé, which is easy to follow. The quiet, candlelit atmosphere lends itself to prayer and silence. All are very welcome.
Joining the rest of the nation in the Act of Remembrance at 11.00am on Sunday 11 November, Weobley will hold its Silence and laying of wreaths around the war memorial in the churchyard opposite the main church entrance.
