Prayers

MONDAY

Father,

I thank you for all that You have done.
You gave your Son freely for me,
and I praise You for calling me, drawing me near,
out of blindness you caused me to see.


Spirit of Life, you are God’s holy fire,
You’ve kindled my heart with your blaze;
and I know you are refining me, changing my life,
and through faith you’re revealing your ways.
Jesus, I need you as Lord of my life.


I give all I have unto you.


Lord I want to live under your heavenly hand,
and praise you in all that I do.

Amen

Steve Stewart


TUESDAY

Jesus we love you, we praise you, we adore you,
Glorify your name in all the earth.
Glorify your name, glorify your name,
Glorify your name in all the earth.
Jesus we love you, we’ll serve you, we’ll obey you,
Glorify your name in all the earth.
Glorify your name, glorify your name,
Glorify your name in all the earth. Amen

WEDNESDAY

God of Creation,

You created night and day.
You separated the sea from the sky.
You gave life to all living creatures and saw that it was good.
Help us to reconnect with the majesty of your creation.



God of Love,
Fill us with your love for all creation.
Empty us of apathy, selfishness and fear.
Inspire us to live simply and in harmony with creation.
Help us to be good stewards, caring for all creation with self-sacrificing and nurturing love.


God of Compassion,
Breathe into us solidarity with all who suffer now
and the future generations who will suffer
because of our environmental irresponsibility.
Help us to put people before profit and 'being' before 'having'.


God of Justice,
Empower us to work together as one global community,
To find creative and just solutions to protect those most vulnerable in our world,
and all of creation for future generations.
Move us into action for climate justice and to restore your creation.

Amen

THURSDAY

Father and lover of life,


you know the depths of my innermost self, and you understand me. You protect me on every side,
shielding me from all harm. When you put me together in my mother’s womb, you knew all about me.
I thank you for the wonder of myself, and I stand in awe at all that you have made. As you love me, so
may I come to know and love you more and more. Guide me in your ways.

Amen
Ps139

FRIDAY

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying that we are born again to eternal life. Amen St Francis of Assissi

SATURDAY

Deliver us, O God, from a lazy mind,
from all lukewarmness of heart, and all depression of spirit.
We know that these must deaden our love for you;
mercifully free our hearts from them all.
And give us such a lively, enthusiastic and cheerful spirit
that we may vigorously perform whatever you command,
thankfully suffer whatever you choose for us,
and always be eager to obey your holy love in all things;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

John Wesley

SUNDAY

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.

Amen.
