Prayers for the Week

Household Prayer: Morning

Loving God, you offer the gift of new life each day.
Open my heart to receive this grace that I may be wholly yours,
then give me the courage to share this gift wherever I go
as I seek to walk in your way of mercy, forgiveness, and newness of life.    Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Forgiving God, who makes all things new,
you know where I have flourished this day
and you know where I have failed.
Help me to know that in all my challenges there is a seed of hope
that enables me to more faithfully depend on you.
May I rest in peace this night and wake refreshed
to greet the newness of your day. Amen.
