Prayers for the Week

Household Prayer: Morning

God, my maker, hold me this day,
with the same hand that shapes the mountains,
with the same hand that cradles the deep.
Keep my heart soft and supple,
make my faith strong and firm.
Renew me, re-form me, re-create me
into the image of Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

We come to you now, O Lord,
weary from the day’s journey,
thirsty for rest, hungry for peace.
Renew us in your love
and restore us by your grace,
until we find our rest at last
by the river of the water of life. Amen.
