Household Prayer: Morning

Holy One, thank you for the ability to begin my day in prayer.
Guide my path today.
No matter what happens, help me to feel that I belong to you,
and bring me home to you at the end of the day. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Loving God, thank you for claiming me as your own.
I have been in the world all day,
but I also know that I am in you.
Give me the grace to let go of this day
and entrust it to your care.
Be with me as I sleep this night
and continue to sanctify me in your embrace. Amen.
