Household Prayer: Morning
As I open my eyes,
I can see the heavens that tell of your glory.
Allow me to be part of this creation
that proclaims your handiwork
and your real presence in the world. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
As the day winds down,
allow me to find satisfaction in the throught
that I have taken my cross and followed you.
Allow me to find rest in the knowledge
that I did not act as if I was ashamed of you.
And if I failed you, forgive me
and allow me to find solace
in the new mercies of the morning. Amen.
