Morning Prayer For A Monday

Monday – Creation

Before Prayer

The night has passed and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind. 

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you.
Amen

Opening Prayer.

COME CLOSE
come closer.
Listen with your heart.
Let yourself be touched by the hand of God.
Feel the enormous warmth.
Rest to be revived
Live again in the light of this new day.

The psalm of the day

‘Kyrie’ prayer

Creator God,
You are the source of all life
Lord, have mercy.

Lord Jesus Christ
You lead us to the Father
Christ, have mercy

Holy Spirit
You guide us into truth
Lord, have mercy.

Collect / Affirmation of Faith

I am In your presence,
Creator of heaven and earth,
Lord of the universe and all that is in it.
You are the One who is never far from us,
the One in whom we live, and move and have our being.
Amen.

Scripture reading(s) for the day

Prayer of thanksgiving or prayer of concern.

God of earth and sea and sky,
God of flesh, and joy and sigh,
God of every seam of life.

In the quiet of the garden,
with the hum of traffic
and the urgent sound of siren,
cover all with your patient love.

Plant in us seeds of hope,
and renew our faltering faith,
so that our purpose and our passion
may be driven by heaven sent engines,
to bring all things in creation
to one glorious whole,
alive in harmony.
Amen.

Blessing

Today,
may I own my poverty,
celebrate the reality of abundance,
walk in the way of Christ,
and live with open hands
to receive the goodness of all God’s gifts.
Amen.
