Household Prayer: Morning
you are the God
who is and was and is to be.
Thank you that Christ has freed us
to be a kingdom of priests
serving you and your world.
Give me a deeper sense, as I move through this day,
of what it means to say
that you are my “Alpha and Omega,” my A to Z. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
Jesus, tonight I remember
that your gospel gives me the power to forgive any and all,
through the gift of your Holy Spirit,
and that includes forgiving myself.
Breathe your peace into me
so that even if I pierced you today,
I can still see you coming to embrace me
with your freedom and love this night. Amen.
