Household Prayer: Morning
Gracious and loving God,
we give you thanks for protection through the night
and for your presence throughout the day.
Clothe us with mercy toward those we meet.
Render us the courage and calm we need
to face the tasks of the present
and to prepare for the challenges to come.
Guard us this day so that we learn
to give thanks at all times.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
Almighty and gracious God,
we give you thanks for this day of work and play,
for study and chores,
for time with our family and friends,
and for time to be alone.
Bring us now to the peace of mind that lets us rest in you.
Refresh us with your care
so that we may rise in the morning with joy. Amen.
