Household Prayers for the week starting on Dec. 22, 2019

Household Prayer: Morning

Giver of light,

in the light of your Christ I see myself clearly as your child.

I rise in thankfulness for you are present

when I sleep and when I am awake.

I rise to come to you in the hours of joy and in sorrow.

I rise to live this day in your wisdom,

without fear, without acrimony,

but with charity toward those I meet

and toward myself when I find I am wanting.

Lead me into your desire for me this day, O Lord.

Let me know your love is deep and abiding;

in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Giver of rest and silence,

in you I take refuge when the shadows deepen

and the time of sleep has come.

I thank you for the ventures of this day,

for friends who helped me and for those who sought my help,

for the skills you planted in me to hone and use,

for the strangers whose lives enlarged mine today

and whose insights enrich my life.

Keep me safe from harm as I sleep

and bring me to a new dawn with strength to work and rejoice;

in Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
