Lord in Your mercy ...hear our prayer

June 21, 2015

The following prayers have been adapted from The United Methodist Book of Worship, pages 568-580. The Book of Worship recommends the use of this material as individual or groups engage in daily prayers.

O Lord, open my lips
And my mouth shall declare your praise.

Sing or read a favorite or familiar hymn.

In the morning:
New every morning is your love, Great God of light,
and all day long you are working for good in the world.
Stir up in us desire to serve you,
to live peacefully with our neighbors,
and to devote each day to your Son,
our Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

At noon or mid-day:
God of mercy,
this midday moment of rest is your welcome gift.
Bless the work we have begun, make good its defects
and let us finish it in a way that pleases you.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

In the evening:
As you have made this day, O God,
you also make the night.
Give light for our comfort.
Come upon us with quietness and still our souls
that we may listen for the whisper of your Spirit
and be attentive to your nearness in our dreams.
Empower us to rise again in new life to proclaim your
praise, and to show Christ to the world.

A daily scripture reading and devotional message can be found in the printed Upper Room, or

Silently reflect upon God's Word for you this day.

For the people of this congregation...
For those who suffer and those in trouble...
For the concerns of this local community...
For the world, its people, and its leaders...
For the Church universal – its leaders, its members and its mission...


Many Christians conclude by reciting the Canticle of Simeon (Luke 2:29-32) in the morning and the “Magnificat” of Mary (Luke 2:46-55) in the evening.

BLESSING  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope
fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you may abound in hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
