3 – Tuesday Morning Prayer

Listen

Sit comfortably, away from distractions. Listen to the sounds around you, and acknowledge them. Deepen your breathing.

Focus on God. Offer him your thanks and praise. Ask Him to guide and direct your day.

Reflect

When it seems appropriate, read the passage of scripture set for the day.

Reflect on what you have read. Give God time to speak to you.

Ask: what can I learn from this passage about God’s grace and how to live as a follower of Christ?

Pray

Loving God, I offer you today, my thoughts, words and actions. Help me to heed the promptings of your Spirit, to recognize your Son in those I encounter, and to be a witness to your kingdom. Help me to share your healing touch, your words of encouragement, your smile of friendship, your helping hand.

Give me, O Lord, firm faith, unwavering hope, perfect love.

Pour into my heart the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and spiritual strength, the spirit of knowledge and true godliness, and the spirit of your holy fear. (Alcuin 735-804)

This morning I pray for: my family and friends … those with whom I work … those who rely on me …

I pray for those in need … the sick… the lonely … the unloved …

I pray for those who are struggling to find a job … those who are in financial difficulty … those whose relationships are in turmoil …

I pray for … [any other needs]

Be within me to strengthen me, without me to preserve, over me to shelter, beneath to support, before me to direct, behind me to bring back, round about me to fortify. (Lancelot Andrews 1555-1626)

Conclude

Be with us as we seek to follow in the footsteps of your Son. Grant us humility and prayerfulness that may attract many into your kingdom. Let our lives reflect the light of Christ and the hope of faith. In the name of your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
