Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord
(Ps. 89)


God our creator, in coming before you in prayer this day,
we stand in humility to sing of your goodness towards us.
In our journey we are ever mindful of your presence and how awesome is your love for us.
May we grow in humility to be able to sing for ever of your goodness in our lives.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.
To those who accepted him, he gave power to become children of God.
(Jn 1)


Almighty and ever-present Father, hear our prayers as we call out to you. Help us to be bearers of peace in our world.
To those who are troubled may we bring them peace and may our lives be a source of comfort to those who are in pain.
By these actions, may they know of your presence in our world and in their lives.
Amen.

Prayer for Travelers

O Almighty and merciful God, who has commissioned your angels to guide and protect us,
may they be our companions from our setting out until our return. Clothe us with their invisible protection;
keep from us all danger of collision,
of fire, of explosion, of falling;
and finally, having preserved us from all evil,
and especially from sin,
guide us to our heavenly home.
Amen.

I will look after my sheep, says the Lord,
and I will raise up one shepherd who will pasture them.
I, the Lord, will be their God.
(Ezek 34)


God our Father, your Son gave us the example of what it means to be a true shepherd.
In this day and age, we are in such need of your loving presence in our lives.
Help us to look to you for encouragement and support as we strive to give witness to the values of what it means to be a Good Shepherd.
Amen

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)

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.

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 donít 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.
Help us to grow in trust that we will know of your presence in our lives and in the world.
Amen.

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.

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.

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.
