The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
(Ps 34)


Lord God, You do hear the cry of the poor.
We are confident that our prayers for those who are hurting, struggling, hungry and thirsty you hear.
We are in need of your grace to be present to all those who cry out to you in their need.
May we be ever open to receiving your grace in our lives.
Amen.

Your word O Lord, is truth; make us holy in the truth.
(John 17)



Lord, we come before you as humble followers seeking the truth in life.
Often times, our human weaknesses cause us to fall and lose sight of your truth.
Help us to know your reconciling presence in our lives and your deep desire for us to live in your truth.
Amen.

I will rise and go to my father and tell him:
Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.
(Lk 15:18)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the Gospel about the son who asked forgiveness from his father and the father was filled with joy that his son returned to him.
You give us this example so that we will return to you and that our lives will be filled with joy.
However, it is not always easy for us to admit that we have done wrong and to ask forgiveness.
Help us to grow in our humility and to return to you asking forgiveness
and to feel your open arms ready to embrace us as the father embraced his son upon his return home.
Amen

At the name of Jesus every knee must bend,
in heaven, on earth, and under the earth;
Christ became obedient for us even to death,
dying on the cross.
(Phil 2)


God our Father, we kneel before you in prayer mindful of the many ways that you bless us on our journey.
May we be ever mindful of the love you have for us and may we share this love with others.
Amen.

Within your temple, we ponder your loving kindness, O God.
As your name, so also your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;
your right hand is filled with justice.
(Ps 47)


Lord, teach us your decrees and show us the path of life.
We seek you with all our hearts and treasure your promises in our lives.
Help us this day to remain focused on your words and help us to live according to your law and statutes.
Amen.

The Lord is kind and merciful.

We are so very grateful for the many ways that you touch our lives with your kindness and mercy

We bring before you in prayer those whom we have encountered in life, asking that they may continue to experience your kindness and mercy.

God so loved the world, he gave us his only Son,
that all who believe in him might have eternal life.
( John 3:16)


God our Father, we come before you this day excited with the news that you loved us so much that you gave us your only Son,
that all who believe will have the gift of eternal life.
As we take time this day to reflect on how much you loved us and on this precious gift of your Son to us,
we give you praise and thanksgiving for the many ways your Son's presence have changed us.
May we never lose sight of your Son's presence in our lives.
Amen.

Save me, O God, by your power, and grant me justice!
God, hear my prayer; listen to my plea.
(Ps 53)


Lord, we know that you are near to the broken hearted.
You are the source of life and we are aware that you know our weaknesses,
our every thoughts even before we share them.
Please hear our intentions this day,
for we are in need of your loving kindess and of your forgiving presence in our lives.
Amen.

God, take pity on me!
My enemies are crushing me;
all day long they wage war on me.
(Ps. 55)


Lord God, we are mindful that we have sinned and are in need of your forgiveness and mercy.
Please take pity on us for we desire to do your will in our lives.
Yet there are those around us who try to make us fall thus we become weak in our response, hence fall into danger and even sin.
Help us to become stronger and to defend our faith and our decisions in life.
Amen.

Bless the Lord

Behold now, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,
you that stand by night in the house of the Lord.

Lift up your hands in the holy place and bless the Lord;
the Lord who made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion.

Psalms 134

Prayer for Protection

Blessed are thy Saints, O God and King,
who have traveled over the tempestuous sea of this mortal life,
and have made the harbour of peace and felicity.
Watch over us who are still in our dangerous voyage;
and remember such as lie exposed to the rough storms of trouble and temptations.
Frail is our vessel, and the ocean is wide;
but as in thy mercy thou hast set our course,
so steer the vessel of our life toward the everlasting shore of peace,
and bring us at length to the quiet haven of our heart's desire,
where thou, O our God, are blessed, and livest and reignest for ever and ever.

St. Augustine

In our journey, we are grateful for the many ways you touch our lives and guide us to live a life in faithfulness to you.

Amen.

Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may be faithful in your sight.
(Ps. 86)



Lord Jesus Christ, when you walked this earth you gave examples of what we are to do in order to follow you in this journey of faith.
Free us from what binds us from totally following you with our whole heart
and to grow in our trust in your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.

Lord, many times, we are deaf to your words and we are led into unhealthy and sinful ways.
May we be humble enough to come to you asking for forgiveness and to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation.
In this sacrament your graces are given to us,
we are healed and we can hear your words.
May we always know of your forgiveness and grace in our lives.
Amen.

Luther's Evening Prayer

My Heavenly Father, I thank You, through Jesus Christ, Your beloved Son,
that You have protected me, by Your grace.
Forgive, I pray, all my sins and the evil I have done. Protect me, by Your grace, tonight.
I put myself in your care, body and soul and all that I have.
Let Your holy angels be with me, so that the evil enemy will not gain power over me.
Amen.

Martin Luther
