Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.

Amen.

Prayer for the Morning

Oh God the King eternal, who divides the day from the darkness, and has turned the shadow of death into the light of morning; I pray that this day you will incline my heart to keep your commandments, driving temptation from my mind. Guide my feet into the way of peace; that having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, I may, when the night comes, rejoice in giving you thanks for a day lived in your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer of Repentance

O Lord our God, good and merciful, I acknowledge all my sins which I have committed every day of my life, in thought, word and deed; in body and soul alike. I am deeply sorry that I have ever offended you, and I sincerely repent; with true sorrow I humbly pray to you, O Lord: that in your unfathomable mercy, you will forgive me all my past transgressions and absolve me from them. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to change my way of life and to sin no more; that I may walk in the way of the righteous, offering praise and glory to the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Community of Prayer

The Lord bless us and keep us. The Lord make his face to shine upon us, and be gracious unto us. The Lord lift up his countenance upon us, and give us peace, this day and evermore.

Amen.


Think of the day ahead in terms of God with you, and visualize health, strength, guidance, purity, calm confidence, and victory as the gifts of His presence.



Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death


I love the Lord, for He hears my voice and my prayers.
Because He has turned His ear to me, I will call upon Him as long as I live.

The ropes of death ensnared me, and the terrors of death came upon me;
I found distress and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord: "O Lord, I beseech you, save my life!"

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
He preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.

Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt graciously with you.
You have rescued my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
It was You who I turned to, when I cried out, "I am greatly afflicted."
And in the time of my crisis, cried out "All men are liars."

What can I give to repay all His benefits toward me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord.
I will honor my vows to the Lord; and may it be in the presence of all His people.

The death of His godly ones is momentous in the sight of the Lord.
For surely, oh Lord, I am Your servant,
I am Your servant, the child of Your handmaid,
You have untied my bonds.
I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to You,
And I will call upon the name of the Lord.

I will honor my vows to the Lord; and may it be in the presence of all His people,
In the courtyard of the Lord's house,
In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!
