When we pray we become part of a community that stretches across time and space. Our prayers join with the prayers of people from all nationalities and walks of life, past and present, who are praying in countless different circumstances – within monastic communities, in churches, at work, on the way to work, doing the washing-up, cooking the evening meal. In this way we are involved in God’s creative and compassionate work in the world. There are many different prayer traditions, some stretching back many centuries to the beginnings of Christianity
