Prayer is the breath of God that provides the words that we bring to God.


We believe in becoming a sanctuary of prayer, and this breath from God is just as important as the breathing of the lungs which brings health and life to our bodies. 


Prayer is a spiritual discipline and needs to be practiced. At the Abbey we participate in fixed-hour prayer six times a day -  the oldest form of communal spiritual practice. It follows the Roman commercialism of its time and is still relevant today in our daily rhythms.

The ancient future of the Church is experienced as we choose to participate in liturgical prayer rhythms that join our hearts to the pilgrims who journeyed before us and those currently following Jesus, all around the world!  

The six prayer services of Urban Abbey represent the sails we have fashioned for earthed creatures to catch the wind of the Spirit; that they might be swept toward Jesus.
