Public prayers are harder to prepare than they used to be. Fresh analogies and images are needed. People are also more ignorant of what is in the Bible. Other aspects of life in society today are also surveyed. Nevertheless, public prayer is a point of opportunity. A number of prayers follow: morning service including Baptism, evening service with young adults present, intercessory prayer for evening, concluding prayer and benediction, a Christmas blessing, grace for a public occasion, a Remembrance Day prayer for use in secondary schools, and a commemoration.
