Daily Prayer from Faith & Worship

 

Take a moment to listen to the still small voice of God within the bustle of the day which has begun. Find a quiet place where you can enjoy precious moments of peace in God's presence. Sit quietly and listen to the sounds of the world around you, both outside and in the place where you are. Breathe slowly and rest in God's presence......

 

From our rising in the morning
to our lying down again,
you are with us
every hour of the day,
our reassurance
when storms assail
and strength
when courage fails.
From our rising in the morning
to our lying down again,
your light illumines
every step of the way,
our comfort
when darkness falls
and peace
that calms our souls.
From our rising in the morning
to our lying down again,
you are with us.

 

 

(If you have time, listen to one of these Taize chants)

 

 

Ponder the words of the Psalmist:

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
(Psalm 34: 11-14)

 

Enter this day knowing that God will lead you into understanding, of this world and your place in it, and His Word and its promises to you. Draw close to God and be His companion through this day.

 


My Lord and my God, take me from all that keeps me from thee.
My Lord and my God, grant me all that leads me to thee.
My Lord and my God, take me from myself and give me completely to thee

Nicholas of Flue (1417-87)

 

A word of confession:

When our faith is weak
you strengthen us,
when we lose our way
you rescue us,
when we fall into sin
you forgive us.
Gracious Father,
please remind us
as we forget,
that your love is
unconditional,
always moulding us
into what we could be,
always blessing us
that we might glorify you.
For love,
grace
and forgiveness,
we thank you.

 

 

For those who stand firm
when faith is tested,
or in the face of
persecution
are not afraid
to confess your name,
we give thanks
for courage shown,
and ask for strength
to follow their example.
For faithful saints
of every age
who with Paul declare
to live is Christ
and to die is gain,
bless their sacrifice,
and all whose faith
has been born
or strengthened
by being in their presence.
