Praying the Daily Hours

Almighty and most merciful Father, who through the blood of thy Son, hath reconciled all things to yourself, both in heaven and on earth; hear our prayers throughout these hours and so sanctify this day; that in all our doings, we may proclaim thee as Lord and show forth thy coming Kingdom; and grant, that doing all our tasks in thy name, we may do them with righteousness, love, and excellence. This we ask for our help and thy Glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the Church

O gracious Father, we humbly beseech thee for thy holy Catholic Church; that thou wouldest be pleased to fill it with all truth, in all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in anything it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, establish it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of him who died and rose again, and ever liveth to make intercession for us, Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, who has called thy people to holy work and has set before us daily tasks in thy vineyard; grant that in all our doings this day we may trust thee and thy provisions, lest filled with anxiety and haste, we forget thy presence and purpose; or filled with dread, we lose sight of the confidence thou does promise to all who serve thee; and so Lord, we offer to you this day and all that thou hast given us to do herein; grant us diligence in our work and sanctify our every endeavor to thy holy purpose; who art alone our strength and our redeemer.

Prayer During a Persistent Trail

O Lord, who on the cross didst take upon thyself all suffering and through thy resurrection didst endow it with purpose and victory; we offer to you our trials this day as a spiritual service of worship, beseeching thee to sanctify them to thy purpose, redeem them from all fault and impurity, and fortify us in the midst of them; and grant, O Lord, that in place of fear, anger, and rebellion, we may have the quiet confidence to follow wherever thou doest lead and patiently wait for thy certain mercy, knowing that our faithfulness is never pointless but shall show forth the splendor of thy majesty in the age to come; and this we ask who art our Resurrection and Life. Amen.

 

Prayer for Grace to reform and grow better.

MOST merciful God, lest, through our own frailty, or the temptations which encompass us, we be drawn into sin, vouchsafe us, we beseech thee, the direction and assistance of thy Holy Spirit. Reform whatever is amiss in the temper and disposition of our souls; that no unclean thoughts, unlawful designs, or inordinate desires, may rest there. Purge our hearts from envy, hatred, and malice; that we may never suffer the sun to go down upon our wrath; but may always go to our rest in peace, charity, and good-will, with a conscience void of offence towards thee, and towards men; that so we may be preserved pure and blameless, unto the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness; and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in thy fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
