Prayers for the Week

Household Prayer: Morning

God, surely you are my salvation.
I begin this day without fear, trusting you,
for you are my strength.
Help me to meditate all day
on the thought that you are rejoicing in me!
And keep me keenly aware, as I travel through his day,
of ways that I may help others, especially those with special needs.
Then bring me home to you at the close of the day. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Thank you, God, for the gift of today
and for guarding my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.
All that I did and all that I left undone,
I now give over to your safekeeping,
trusting in your peace that surpasses all understanding.
Be my rest as I sleep tonight,
and renew me in your love for another day. Amen.
