As We Believe So We Pray contains convenient, compact and constructive ways of praying in harmony with the church. Forms of prayer based on scripture are presented for twelve weekdays. These are focused on phrases from the Apostles’ Creed. There are also three forms focusing on Irish saints, holy communion, and on the expression, ‘in sickness and in health’. Drawing to a large extent on the 2004 edition of The Book of Common Prayer, each form has a prayer of penitence, a psalm, bible reading, and canticle, with suggestions for intercession and thanksgiving.
