A Veterans Prayer

Thank you for the brave men and women who serve and have served in the military.

Even now, guard them and give them compassion for those who confront them as enemies.

Keep our children from hate that hardens, or from scorekeeping with human lives.

Though for a season they and we must be people of war, let us all live for peace, as eager for agreement as for victory.

Encourage them as they encourage one another, and never let hard duty, in or out of the service, separate them from loyalty to your Son, our Savior. Amen.

Do not abandon me, Lord, My God, do not go away from me! Hurry to help me, Lord, my Savior. (Ps.37)

God our creator, we need your help in order to offer you a fitting service and praise. May we live in this faith that we profess and continue to grow in our trust in your promise of eternal life. Amen.

Let my prayer come before you, Lord; listen and answer me. (Ps 87)

Psalm of Protection

The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.

- Psalms 27: 1-3

I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. (Ps 23)

Lord Jesus, as we walk this journey of faith may we become more aware of the need for us to take time in silence and reflect on your presence in our lives. May we come to know you in the silence of our hearts. Amen.

Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord. (Ps 122)

God our Father, you have shown us the path of life. May your face shine upon us as we ask for your mercy and forgiveness in our lives. By the faith revealed in the life of the centurion, who believe in your healing presence, may we bear witness to your healing presence in our own lives. Amen.

A Heart to Love Thee

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore thee,
a heart to delight in thee,
to follow and to enjoy thee,
for Christ's sake.


- Ambrose of Milan (c. 339-97)

Prayer for Protection

The Light of God surrounds me;
The Love of God enfolds me;
The Power of God protects me;
The Presence of God watches over me;
Wherever I am, God is,
And all is well.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. (Ps 118)

God our Father, we listen to the words of your Son and desire to follow in His footsteps. As we take time each day to spend in prayer with you and your Son, may we grow in our understanding of what it means to be a follower. Amen.

Seek the Lord while he can be found. Call on him while he is still near. (Is 55)

God our Father, we need your help in our lives. This day we call on you to give us hope when we feel discouraged, to give us peace in time of despair, to give us joy in times of sadness and to give us love in those moments that we feel alone, isolated and forgotten. We cry out to you, please hear our prayers this day and everyday of our lives. Amen.

Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here;
Watch over me throughout the night,
keep me safe within your sight.

Justice shall flourish in his time and fullness of peace forever. (Ps 72)

Lord, we desire so much to live in peace and that justice will flourish in our time. Yet, our humanness gets in the way and we fall to temptations and live with our limitations. We are in need of your forgiveness in our lives and we need to reach out to those who are hurt by our selfishness and greed. Help us to recognize the need for your help and guidance in our lives. Amen.

Guide Us to Our Truest Selves

Boundless Sea of Love and Energy, our God,
may all your dreams for us come true:
your motherly imaginings, and your fatherly hopes,
your creative purposes everywhere in nature.
Guide us to our truest selves, co-creators of this environment.
Make us worthy inheritors
of the astonishing evolutionary reality in which we live.
May it be so.

- William Cleary

Prayer When I Can't Pray

I try to pray;
words don’t come.
I toss and turn
and feel nothing.
My mind is dry,
my heart is dull,
my soul longs
for life.
Hear my silent cry,
my God, hear me.
Let me not be
a shriveled reed
or an empty shell.
Breathe on me
and make me whole.
Give me passion
that I may love.
Then shall my tongue praise
your holy name
with words I do not yet know.
So be it.

- Vienna Cobb Anderson

Day by Day

Day by day, dear Lord of you
Three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,
Day by day.

- St. Richard of Chichester

The Lord is kind and merciful; slow to anger and rich in compassion. (Ps 45)

Lord Jesus, in these days that we are living, there is much sadness and fear in our world. Help us to turn towards you for strength and courage to bear the tragedies and sorrows that we are facing and help us to grow in trust that we will know of your presence in our lives and in the world. Amen.

Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths; all humankind shall see the salvation of God. (Lk 3)

Lord, we come before you this day in our hope of loving you more each and every day. As we prepare our hearts and our lives to celebrate your birth, may we be blessed with hearts that are open to celebrate the gift of your life and with lives that will truly know your love for us. Amen.

Help Me to Stay Sober

Dear God,
Thank you for this day. Help me to stay clean and sober, just for this day. Help me to recognize your hand in all things. Thank you for the blessings I understand and the ones I don't. Thank you for the miracles I see and the ones I don't. Thank you for your spirit who always abides in me. I ask that I may be with your spirit today. Cleanse my mind of all darkness and fill it with love and light. Let me be o.k. with this day no matter what it brings. Thank you for everything that's in my life and everything that's not.

- Beliefnet

In Time of Need

Heavenly Father,
in my present need,
help me to believe
that you are aware of my anxiety
and will do what is best for me.
Give me the strength to trust you
and put the present and future in your hands.
Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for the Homeless

O God, as Naomi and Ruth journeyed from one land to another seeking a home, we ask your blessing upon all who are homeless in this world. You promised to your chosen people a land flowing with milk and honey; so inspire us to desire the accomplishment of your will that we may work for the settlement of those who are homeless in a place of peace, protection, and nurture, flowing with opportunity, blessing, and hope. Amen.

- Vienna Cobb Anderson
