Trinitarian Prayer from John Stott link

“Good morning heavenly Father, good morning Lord Jesus, good morning Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father I worship you as the creator and sustainer of the universe.
Lord Jesus, I worship you, Saviour and Lord of the world.
Holy Spirit, I worship you, sanctifier of the people of God.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more.
Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.
Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity, three persons in one God,
have mercy upon me.

A Prayer for Rest link

Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (NIV)

In times of weakness
and hour of need,
yours is the strength
by which we carry on,
the shoulder
we rest our head upon.
When our load is heavy
and too much to bear,
yours are the arms
stretched out to help us
the grace
that we depend on.
In times of weakness
and hour of need,
your voice is heard,
‘Come… find rest.’

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 13:20-21 (Bible Gateway)

 Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord,  equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

A Prayer by Martin Luther link

Almighty God, the Protector of all who trust in you,
without whose grace nothing is strong, nothing is holy,
increase and multiply on us your mercy
 that through your holy inspiration we may think the things that are right
and by your power may carry them out, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Prayer by Benedict link

Gracious and Holy Father,
Please give me:
intellect to understand you,
reason to discern you,
diligence to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
a spirit to know you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
ears to hear you,
eyes to to see you,
a tongue to proclaim you,
a way of life pleasing to you,
patience to wait for you
and perseverance to look for you.

Grant me a perfect end,
your holy presence,
a blessed resurrection
and life everlasting.

    By the way, for those who wonder at Janet’s use of the word “church” when it is via Internet, from her home, connected virtually to singing, exhortation and instruction – I say it is the proper use of the word “church” (ekklesia in Greek). The ekklesia are “those called out by God” and anybody who would spend a few minutes in prayer, worship and study (alone, with one or two, or in a virtual world of several dozen) are as much “called out” as those who actually go to a building and interact with several hundred people on Sunday morning. What defines Christianity is not what is done on Sundays, but how one lives his or her calling Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, etc… and if E-Church can help just one person live out Christ’s life and be salt and light in a decaying and dark world, then E-Church is worth it.

    Amen, Wade! I thank God for the virtual world available to us today. It allows those who may not have (or choose) another way, to stay in touch with fellow believers and share thoughts, ask questions, and listen to teachings.

    I’m grateful for e-church!
