Lord, we pray that Your grace

who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

October 3, 2019

Almighty and everlasting God,
You are always more ready to hear than we to pray,
and to give more than we either desire or deserve:
Pour upon us the abundance of Your mercy,
 forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid,
and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask,
except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior;
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

September 26, 2019

O God, You declare Your almighty power
chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us

to obtain Your promises, may become partakers
of Your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ
our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and
the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

Amen

September 19, 2019

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things,
but to love things heavenly; and even now,

to hold fast to those that shall endure;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

September 12, 2019

O God, because without You we are not able to please You,

one God, now and forever.

Amen.

September 5, 2019

Grant us, O Lord,
to trust in you with all our hearts;
for, as you always resist the proud
who confide in their own strength,
so you never forsake those
who make their boast of Your mercy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Amen.

August 29, 2019

Lord of all power and might,
the author and giver of all good things:

through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.

Amen.

one God, forever and ever.  

Amen.

 

August 15, 2019

Almighty God, you have given your only Son
to be for us a sacrifice for sin,

one God, now and for ever.

the spirit to think and do always
those things that are right, that we,

be enabled to live according to your will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

Let your continual mercy, O Lord,
cleanse and defend your Church;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

July 25, 2019

Heavenly Father, may your holiness purify me,
your wisdom direct me,
your power sustain me,
your mercy forgive me,
your patience bear with me and
your love prepare me,
call me and receive me forever.

July 18, 2019

I offer You, O Lord, my whole life, my memory,
my understanding and my whole will.
You have given them all to me: now I give them back to You.
Give me only Your love and Your grace.
With these I will be rich enough and will have no more to ask.

July 11, 2019

Come summer with me, Lord;
summer deep down in my soul;
restore my faith in summer’s time,
in rest, in joy, in play, in you.

Summer in my heart, Lord,
and dwell there as if time would never end,
as if all time were children’s time, eternal time
when school is always out and joy is ever in.

And Let others summer in my shade, Lord,
and share whatever summer’s peace is mine to give,
whatever summer’s light is mine to shed,
whatever summer’s warmth is mine to share.

Good God of every season and every day this week,
come summer with me, Lord, and let the child in my heart
spend this summer in your love.

Amen

July 4, 2019

My Lord and My God, I am happy to acknowledge
that I came from Your hands, that I depend on You
for everything in time and eternity.
Help me to live so that I may honor
You more and more daily and die in Your love.
