rayer For Peace

Holy God, from whom all thoughts of truth and love and peace proceed,
and whose Son is rightly called the Prince of Peace;
kindle in the hearts of all men the fire of longing for peaceful existence so
powerful that they may never long to do violence against another.
Guide with pure wisdom those who guide the nations of the earth
and the many factions who may find disagreement,
that your kingdom may go forward in tranquility and goodness,
free of hatred and hostility, until the earth is filled with knowledge of your love.
In the name of Christ, I pray,
Amen

Prayer for the Guidance

Lord like a father, you love me. Like a perfect brother, you love me.
I would be sick with shame, except that you have forbidden it,
and by the power of God forgive my wrongdoing.

I give myself to you wholly, freely; every part of me blesses you.
Let me live your love and reflect your light, that others may see a dim reflection
of your magnificence in my lowly life, and that despite my many grievous faults,
I might please you by doing better today, and every day. And this I vow:
I will try, at least once today, to take a step closer to you,
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Matthew 4:1-4
The Temptation of Jesus
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Prayer for Purity of Thought

Lord God, who alone gave me the breath of life, and alone can keep alive in me the holy desires your Spirit brings; I pray to you, to sanctify my thoughts and endeavors this day; that I may not begin to act without a pure intention or continue it without your blessing. And grant that, having the eyes of my mind opened to behold things invisible and unseen, I may in heart be inspired by your wisdom, and in work be upheld by your strength, and in the end be accepted by you as your faithful servant; through Jesus Christ our Savior.
Amen.

Prayer for All People

O God, I humbly pray to you for all sorts and conditions of humanity;
that it might please you to make your Word known to them and bring your saving health to all nations.
May all of us live in that unity of spirit which our faith in Christ provides to us,
in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life.

Finally, I commend to your fatherly goodness all those who are ill or in distress,
in their mind, body, or circumstances. May it please you to comfort and relieve them in accordance with their needs,
giving them patience during their suffering, and a fortunate outcome to all of their problems.
And this I ask in the name of Jesus Christ,
who was always pleased to relieve the suffering of those he encountered.
Amen.

Morning Prayer

Lord let me today do something that shall take
A little sadness from the world’s vast store,
And may I be so favored as to make
Of joy’s too scanty sum a little more.

Let me not hurt, by any selfish deed
Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend;
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need,
Or sin by silence when I should defend.

However meagre be my worldly wealth,
Let me give something that shall aid my kind,
A word of courage, or a thought of health,
Dropped as I pass for troubled hearts to find.

Let me tonight look back across the span
Between dawn and dark, and to my conscience say
Because of some good act to beast or man,
“The world is better that I lived today.”
Amen.

The Morning Prayer of Saint Patrick

I arise today through the power of God:
God’s might to comfort me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to lead me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s Heavenly Host to save me
from the snares of the devil,
from temptations to sin,
from all who wish me ill,
from near and afar,
alone and with others.
Amen

For Those in Need of Strength

I pray, Lord, for all who will need strength and courage in the day ahead: or those who face danger.
For those who risk themselves for others. For those who must make an important decision today.
For people who are seriously ill. For those facing persecution or torture.
I ask you, Lord, to give them the power of your Spirit, this I pray.
Amen.
