Household Prayers for the week starting on Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019

Household Prayer: Morning

New every morning are your mercies, dear God.

As I begin this new day,

make me as merciful to others as you have been to me.

Strengthen me in faith

so that I may trust in you with my whole heart.

If any trouble overtakes me today,

help me to wait and to hope in you.

May the Holy Spirit help me

as I both guard and give away to others

the treasure of Jesus Christ, my Savior. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

God of my homecoming,

the night falls with your steadfast love

watching over the world.

I put my trust in you as I prepare to lie down in sleep.

Thank you for the gift of the day as it has been:

for glimpses of beauty;

for expressions of care;

for opportunities to serve.

Thank you for the gift of faith kindled and rekindled in me through

the years.

Thank you for those who have taught me the faith

in sincerity and love.

With the return of morning’s light,

may I rise from this resting place

to live tomorrow in accord with your purpose and grace.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
