Rhythm of Daily Prayer
At the heart of Ffald y Brenin is our Rhythm of Prayer. It’s the pulse of life that shapes our day. Our framework is contained in the Rhythm of Daily Prayer booklet, available from our on-line shop. In light of COVID-19, we’ve also made a FREE downloadable PDF version available here.
Due to coronavirus precautions, we are currently only doing communal daily prayer outdoors when the weather is fine. Overnight guests are welcome to join in (Please note: at this time, the centre is closed to day visitors.)
We pray slowly and reflectively. Adding a rhythm of prayer to your daily life can provide scaffolding to your time with the Lord.
During a regular week our rhythm is as follows. You are welcome to join us right where you are. Feel free to adjust the times according to your schedule.
9:30 AM – Morning Prayer
Almighty God, in view of your great mercy, we lay our lives down as a morning sacrifice for you.
12:45 AM – Midday Prayer
As the press of work eases at lunchtime, may God’s rest be upon us. As the sun rides high at noon, may the Son of Righteousness shine upon us.
5:00 PM – Evening Prayer
Almighty God, we acknowledge that you are woven into our day, our evening, and our night.
9:45PM – Night Prayer
Save us, O Lord, while waking, and guard us while sleeping, that awake we may watch with Christ and asleep may rest in peace.
“Do not have your concert first, and then tune your instrument afterwards. Begin the day with the Word of God and prayer, and get first of all into harmony with Him.”
– Hudson Taylor
In addition to the Rhythm of Daily Prayer, we follow a Cycle of Daily Readings that contains selections from the Old and New Testaments. Meditating on Scripture helps us bring our hearts and minds back into line with God’s truth. His Word urges us to “pray without ceasing,” which we are better equipped to do when we have His word hidden in our hearts.

“In the morning, prayer is the key that opens to us the treasures of God’s mercies and blessings; in the evening, it is the key that shuts us up under His protection and safeguard.”
Submit a Prayer Request
We receive prayer requests from around the world, and it is our joy and privilege to pray for you and with you. Even if we do not respond, please know that we pray for every request that comes in.
Note about privacy: We will not share your request publicly, but it may be seen by members of the FYB team and some of our prayer partners. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can write “Anonymous” in the name box.
If you’re requesting prayer for someone else, please only use their first initial, and keep their details general enough that they are not easily identified. The Lord knows who we are paying for, even if we don’t have their name!
LOCAL HOUSES OF PRAYER
LHOPS is a prayer movement birthed from Ffald y Brenin that’s spreading all around the world, with groups of Christians adopting a small local area for Jesus, worshipping and praying for the manifest breaking in of the Kingdom of God, and proclaiming blessings. Want to start a Local House of Prayer in your own community?
“Before Local Houses of Prayer we just used to meet in one group to pray for a particular situation. Now Church members have identified prayer partners in many groups to pray for issues and individuals. Facilitators in training are calling and giving stories of transformation, street children have returned home, broken marriages are been restored, jobless are been employed. Praise God for Local Houses of Prayer.”
Prayer Day is a time of worship, teaching, and prayer. While usually people attend from all over the world in person, the coronavirus has pushed us to take Prayer Day online.
