A Service of Morning Prayer

 

Welcome

 

Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father

and the Lord Jesus Christ

be with you.

and also with you.

 

This is the day that the Lord has made.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

 

Christ the Light of the world has come to dispel the darkness of our hearts.

In his light let us examine ourselves and confess our sins.

 

 

Silence and stillness.

 

 

Most merciful God,

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have sinned

in thought, word, and deed.

We have not loved you with our whole hearts.

We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.

In your mercy forgive what we have been,

help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be,

that we may do justly, love mercy,

and walk humbly with you, our God.

Amen.

 

May almighty God have mercy upon us,

and forgive us our sins through

Jesus Christ our Lord,

Amen.

 

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;

let us pray with one heart and mind.

 

Silence is kept

 

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,

so may the light of your presence, O God,

set our hearts on fire with love for you;

now and for ever. Amen.

 

Readings

 

Reflection

 

We say what we believe:

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty,

Who was, and is, and is to come.

We believe in God the Father who created all things,

we believe in God the Son who died for us,

we believe in God the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

Let us pray:

 

 

Space for our own prayers, reflections, and thoughts for…

 

The World

Those in authority

Our communities

Those in need

Our families and ourselves

 

Concluding with The Collect

 

We say together the Lord’s Prayer:

Our Father which 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,

the power,and the glory

for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

 

Final Prayer and Blessing

 

 

Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

Amen.
