Household Prayer: Morning

Life-giving God, awaken me to your threefold presence
in the world this day
that I may share your love with others
as freely as you have done for us in Christ. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Abba, I give thanks for the immeasurable gifts of this day,
above all, for the gift of your love made known in Christ.
How grateful I am
that by his love I am counted as a precious member of your family.
Mere words cannot convey the wonder of this love. Amen.
