Prayers for the Week

Household Prayer: Morning

Generous God, thank you for the gift of this new day.
Help me to watch for your signs and wonders in the world today,
and fill my heart with gladness and generosity,
that I may generate good will wherever I go. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Thank You, God, for shepherding me through his day.
As I lie down to sleep this night
help me to imagine green pastures and still waters,
and to remember all the ways you have set a table before me
and filled my cop to overflowing. Amen.
