How To Write Your Own Prayers
Meditation

Few words in the liturgical lexicon are more problematic for Unitarian Universalists (UUs) than “prayer.” Some suffer near spiritual anaphylactic shock at its mere mention; others find it the right and perfect word to describe their practice. When creating prayers, it’s important to remember that UUs have no doctrinally imposed prayer forms. How, or if, they address anyone or anything, the tone, and how they end, all come from the understanding of the person leading the prayer. In a communal setting, such as a worship service, it is assumed that sensitivity to the range of understandings and the traditions and practices of the community will be observed.
