Household Prayers for the week starting on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018

Household Prayer: Morning

Gracious God, you give life and, in your Word, it is beautiful.

Thank you for this new day.

In each coming hour, help me to see beneath

the ever-present difficulties and superficial joys

into the mysteries that you have set out for your people.

Guide me toward those I meet today

in a way that welcomes them and, in turn,

grants me a welcome, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

This day is nearly over, Merciful God, and I am tired.

I have been unable to do all that I had hoped;

I have done some things I would take back if I could.

Forgive me for my failures.

Bring me into the warmth and security of your embrace now,

and fill me with new vision

so that I may rest and rise to meet tomorrow with vigor,

in the name of Christ Jesus, our Lord. Amen.
