Household Prayer: Morning

Heavenly God, our Father,
I am full of thanks for a night of rest
and for this new day and all that now awaits me.
I go forward toward encounters with family and friends,
work and play,
and all that will bring me into contact with strangers,
certain that you are with me.
Lead and guide me in the way of a resurrected life.
Help me to see the risen Lord today; in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Holy God,
you are my comfort at the end as at the beginning of each day.
You pull me toward the goodness you desire for me.
I give you thanks for all that has come my way this day,
and I ask your enveloping power to watch over me this night.
Give rest to all your people.
Wherever there is pain and struggle,
may your holy angels bring peace; in Jesus’ name. Amen.
