Household Prayer: Morning
we begin this new day in the sure knowledge
that you have claimed us as your children.
In all that we do,
keep us mindful of actions that are pleasing in your sight.
In all that we say,
make us attentive to the witness we give to your love.
Let our lives be an example to all whom we encounter,
living as daughters and sons of God
who follow in the path of Jesus,
our Lord and our brother. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
As evening comes and we end the labors of this day,
we thank you, Lord Jesus, that you have been our companion.
If we have disregarded your fellowship, forgive us.
Where we have strayed from your path, correct us.
Let us rest this evening as children of God,
sheltered in the love of those who belong to your holy family of grace. Amen.
