Household Prayer: Morning
Lord, as I begin this day
help me walk in your ways.
Where I fear to go, give me courage, so I may keep following the path of righteousness.
Along the path you set out for me, let me help others as you help me.
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
Lord, as I come to the end of another day, I pray that I followed in your ways

As I rest my weary head, refresh me, so that I may continue my journey in your ways
Prayers of the people
God of all, you blessed Abraham and Sarah with the promise to make them the ancestors of many nations.
In Jesus Christ, you have opened your blessings to everyone. May we all trust in your mercy and grace, and dwell together in peace, and be a sign of your abiding love.
It is through this love that we pray for others in the world.
Today we pray for all pastors and teachers, that they lead the church by humble example.,
We pray for peace among the nations and for integrity within governments, that your will be done on earth as in heaven.
We pray for the poor and the oppressed, that they may find deliverance.
We pray for those who suffer illness of mind or body, that they may find relief from suffering and be restored to wholeness.
Lord we lift all of these prayers to you this day, in Jesus’ name. Amen
