An ancient prayer of Clement of Rome @96 AD link
You, Lord, through your works have revealed the everlasting structure of the world.
You, Lord, created the earth. You are faithful throughout all generations,
righteous in your judgments, marvelous in strength and majesty,
wise in creating and prudent in establishing what exists,
good in all that is observed and faithful to those who trust in you,
merciful and compassionate; forgive us our sins and our injustices,
our transgressions and our shortcomings.
Do not take into account every sin of your servants,
but cleanse us with the cleansing of your truth,
And "direct our steps to walk in holiness and righteousness and purity of heart,"
and "to do what is good and pleasing in your sight" and in the sight of our rulers.
Yes, Lord, "let your face shine upon us" in peace "for our good,"
that we may be sheltered "by your mighty hand" and delivered from every sin "by your uplifted arm";
deliver us as well from those who hate us unjustly.
Give harmony and peace to us and to all who dwell on the earth,
just as you did to our fathers when they reverently "called upon you in faith and trust,"
that we may be saved, while we render obedience to your almighty and most excellent name,
and give harmony and peace to our rulers and governors on earth.
For Strength and Wisdom link
Thank you, Lord, for being there for me and allowing me to cry out to you in my times of need.
It is amazing to me that the Lord of the Universe would take time to listen to me and to care about what I say.
God, there are things happening around me right now that I do not understand.
Some of these things make me feel weak, helpless and afraid.
Even in the midst of this, I know that you are the Lord.
I know that the situation is in Your hand, and I trust You.
I beseech you for strength and for wisdom that I would be able to endure this situation
and be able to handle it in a way that would bring glory to Your name.
In Jesus name.
Scripture Reading: Luke 1:1 (NASB Bible Gateway)
Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things accomplished among us,
A Celtic Prayer link
Creator God, forgive our moments of ingratitude,
the spiritual blindness that prevents us
from appreciating the wonder that is this world,
the endless cycle of nature,
of life and death and rebirth.
Forgive us for taking without giving,
reaping without sowing.
Open our eyes to see,
our lips to praise,
our hands to share,
and may our feet tread lightly on the road ahead.
The Aaronic Blessing
(NIV Gateway Num6:24-26)
“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
