Very thankful for my lovely friends and family and the love of God this morning. Reading from http://www.commonprayer.net had a few gems today:
O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you
as the day rises to meet the sun.
Glory 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…..
May the Lord direct our hearts : into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.
I love the Lord, because he has heard the voice of my supplication : because he has inclined his ear to me whenever I called upon him.
The chords of death entangled me; the grip of the grave took hold of me : I came to grief and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord : “O Lord, I pray you, save my life.”
Gracious is the Lord and righteous : our God is full of compassion.
May the Lord direct our hearts : into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.…
Christ of the cross and of the empty tomb, strengthen us to bear the burdens of the day, to seek you amid the hurts and questions, and to trust you for mercy enough for this day. Amen.
May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you : wherever he may send you;
may he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;
may he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;
may he bring you home rejoicing : once again into our doors.
