Household Prayers for the week starting on Sunday, April 7, 2019

Household Prayer: Morning

Merciful God, as I begin this day,

place in me a spirit of generosity

so that I may freely share love, joy, and encouragement

with those I encounter.

Keep me from quick judgments

so that I leave room for your grace in my life and in the lives of others.

Make me your faithful disciple in my words and in my actions,

as well as in the thoughts of my heart; in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

All through the day, Lord Jesus, you have been present.

As I settle into the routines of home and evening,

I long to be at home in my relationship with you.

Help me to put aside the cares of the day and the worries of tomorrow

in order to fully enjoy the peace of your presence now.

I pray that your peace will also be with those I know

who have special need of your care tonight,

and I pray for those who lie down this night without the safety
of home or bed,

without enough food or resources.

Bring your light into the surrounding darkness

so that all of us may sleep in the security of your love. Amen.
