Household Prayer: Morning

Jesus, in your passion and resurrection,
you show me there is no place you have not been
and no place you fear to go.
Morning by morning, you awaken me more deeply to this truth.
Send me into the world this day with the courage and wisdom
to be a faithful witness to your coming reign
of justice, mercy, and peace. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Although I have sought to serve you this day,
I have failed to keep your love.
You know my strengths and weaknesses more than I;
reveal them to me that I may be healed this night
and begin afresh tomorrow. Amen.
