A Prayer by Dag Hammarskjøld link
You who are over us,
You who are one of us,
You who are also within us,
May all see you-in me also.
May I prepare the way for you,
May I thank you for all
that shall fall to my lot,
May I also not forget the needs of others.
Give me a pure heart-that I may see you.
A humble heart-that I may hear you,
A heart of love-that I may serve you,
A heart of faith-that I may abide in you.
A Prayer by St Augustine link
Lord, I have only lately learnt to love you,
Your beauty ever changing, ancient yet new!
You were always within me, yet I couldn’t find you.
I searched for things outside of myself,
Instead of praying to you for guidance.
I searched for you in the world and I came to see
I came to realize that you were with me all the time,
All the things of your creation.
But I was not with you …..
You called me;
You touched me,
And now I am moved with love of your peace.
Scripture Reading: Hebrews 13:7 (NASB Bible Gateway)
Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.
A Prayer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer link
God of the day and of the night,
in me there is darkness, but with you there is light.
I am alone, but you will not leave me.
I am weak, but you will come to my help.
I am restless, but you are my peace.
I am in haste, but you are the God of infinite patience.
I am confused and lost,
but you are eternal wisdom and you direct my path;
now and for ever.
Benediction : Hebrews 13:20, 21
Now may the God of peace,
who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus,
that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will,
and may he work in us what is pleasing to him,
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.
