What is Taize Prayer

- Taize is a place in France where a reformed protestant,


Bro. Roger Schutz organized more than 100 brothers
and taught them to live a life according to the Scriptures.
And one of those expressions in living a life according to
the scripture is this from of prayer that we will do today,
the TAIZE PRAYER.
What We will do?
- We will come to prayer in silence
- We will do sing some chants.
- Do act of adoration at the end of prayer. (Kneel & bow
down)
- We will end with worship.
- Focus on the Lord
- We find this experience quite profound, but I dont want
you to focus on the experience, I want you to focus on
God. And allow God to bless you today.

Coming Before God Prayer (Sign of the cross)

light

Reading of the Word

Reading: 1 Cor.13:1-7
If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not
have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing
cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend
all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith
so as to move mountains but do not have love, I
am nothing.

If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my


body over so that I may boast but do not have
love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It
is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not
inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own
interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not
brood over injury, it does not rejoice over
wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all
things, endures all things.
- Moment of silence.
