Morning Prayer

 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN

In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice
In the morning, I prepare a sacrifice for You and watch

Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed!

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Confession

Holy scripture reminds us in many places that we should acknowledge and confess our sins and not try to deny them or hide them from God, our Heavenly Father, but rather, we should confess them with a humble and penitent heart, trusting in His infinite mercy and goodness.

(Use this time to examine your life and confess your sins before God. You may choose to pray the following)

Most merciful God, I am truly sorry for all my sins and humbly ask your forgiveness, not simply because I know that these sins bring suffering and condemnation upon me, but because my sins crucified my loving Savior Jesus Christ, and by them I have offended your Infinite Goodness. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to repent of these my sins and to amend my life, through Jesus Christ my Lord. AMEN

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who
trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory forever. AMEN

 Lord, write these words on my heart

      that I might not sin against you.

 

Canticle - 

I will sing to the Lord, who has triumphed gloriously, 
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my song
and has become my salvation.

This is my God whom I will praise, 
the God of my forebears whom I will exalt.

The Lord is a warrior, 
the Lord is his name.

Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power: 
your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

At the blast of your nostrils, the sea covered them; 
they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

In your unfailing love, O Lord, 
you lead the people whom you have redeemed.

And by your invincible strength
you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

You will bring them in and plant them, O Lord, 
in the sanctuary which your hands have established.

Exodus 15.1b-3, 6, 10, 13, 17

 

The Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. AMEN

Prayers

Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers

Mighty God,
in whom we know the power of redemption,
you stand among us in the shadows of our time.
As we move through every sorrow and trial of this life,
uphold us with knowledge of the final morning
when, in the glorious presence of your risen Son,
we will share in his resurrection,
redeemed and restored to the fullness of life
and forever freed to be your people. Amen.

 ( Now offer your prayers to God,  giving thanks,  lifting up those in need and asking for His blessing. Please remember the requests of the congregation. )

Closing Prayer

O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, you have brought us safely to the beginning of this day. Defend us in the same with your mighty power; and grant that this day we fall into no sin,: neither that we run into any kind of danger; but that all that we do may be ordered by your governance, to do always what is righteous in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN

Let us bless the Lord
Thanks be to God.
