Household Prayers for the week starting on Sunday, June 10, 2018

Household Prayer: Morning

Morning has broken, loving God—the shards of light

scattering the long darkness of night.

Help me to carry into this day

the sure knowledge of your forgiveness,

steadfast love,

and great power to redeem.

May I do your will

in all my daily interactions

so that your grace extends

to more and more people.

I begin in thanksgiving,

your glory all around. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Spirit of God,

come as the evening breeze,

carrying away the cares and little failings of this day.

Help me put to rest the worries I have,

the lists I keep,

the regrets I weigh.

You know me through and through—

I cannot hide from you.

May I lie down tonight covered

in your forgiveness and love and redemption,

and dream of things eternal.

I pray in Christ’s name. Amen.
