Holy Jesus, when I awaken each day,

I long to sing with joy for another span of hours

to spend in your company.

that together we may all rise in the morning

with new strength, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Household Prayer: Morning

As I open my eyes,

I want to feel your Word,

living and active and guiding my way.

I want to live knowing

that what is impossible for me is possible for you.

I want to live with the certitude

that those who are first will be last,

and the last will be first.

Give me the courage and the hope

to live with your words in my mind

for the rest of the day.

In Jesus Christ, my teacher, I pray. Amen.




Household Prayer: Evening

As I lay down to rest,

I look at the times in my day

when my heart has felt like fainting,

and I have felt like arguing,

but I do so with the understanding

that even in my deepest sorrow

you were with me.

Thank you, God, for understanding

and for helping this human being who,

if imperfectly,

strives to seek out your face,

to follow your will,

and to understand your Word.

Give me the rest I need

to live day by day

and step by step.

In the name of my example and my strength,

Jesus Christ. Amen.

Household Prayer: Morning

Help us, God, as we rise this day, to seek out your will as we enjoy the good and suffer through the bad. 

Prove us, O God, and try us so that we can learn the steps we need to take to follow your ways. Amen.


Household Prayer: Evening

When I felt like a dejected child, rejected and lost, your comfort surrounded me, and I felt as if I was home. 

Thank you for your embracing heart, for making me feel special and loved, for helping me up, and for saying that you are my brother, my Savior, my friend. 

Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
