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

We adore thee O Christ and we bless thee

For by Thy cross Thou has redeemed the world.

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

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

 Lord, write these words on my heart

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

ALMIGHTY GOD, we beseech thee graciously to bless

this thy family, for which our Lord Jesus Christ

contented to be betrayed, and given up into the hands of

wicked men, and to suffer death upon the cross, who

lives and reigns with thee and the Holy Ghost,

one God, world without end.

 

O MERCIFUL GOD, who hast made all men, and hates

nothing that thou hast made, nor would want the death of

 any sinner, but rather that he be converted and live; Have mercy

upon all unbelievers, and take from them all ignorance, hardness

of heart, and contempt of thy Word; and so fetch them home,

blessed Lord, to thy flock, that they may be saved

among the remnant of the true Israelites, and be made one fold

under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and

 reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world

 without end. 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

Grant us, O Lord, to pass this day in gladness and peace, without stumbling and without sin; that, reaching the evening victorious over all temptation, we may praise you, the eternal God, who is blessed, and governs all things, world without end. AMEN.

Let us bless the Lord
Thanks be to God.
