God, this is not a week ending, it's preparation of a week beginning. In this physical life there are many endings. Help me to find the beginning of what is to come. Help me to unwrap the opportunities as the gift that it is. I know through you I am given what I need. Help me to make sense of the days to come. With all that I am, I live to serve. Amen
Gracious Spirit, your energy that fills me helps me see the beauty in things I question. Help me to keep a clear mind for understanding, a full heart for showing love and open hands for befriending those who have a hard time seeing what I see with you and within myself. Please bless all those who question your grace. Amen.
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
God, we made it though another week. As I look back at the week, I embrace the challenges this week has given. These challenges give me a new outlook on this physical life, again reminding me how fragile life really is. I am grateful for these challenges. It's in thanksgiving that I come to you today. Amen.
It's today that I come in pray with a joyful heart. To hear the birds sing, the wind whistle in the trees, the sound of children laughing and playing. To see people helping one another, two squirrels playing with each other, to see the blueness of the sky. I pray my senses continue to make me aware of the beauty around me. Today I give thanks to the God energy within and around. Amen
Lord, in this fast paced world, let me not forget to take time to embrace the blessings around me. Help me to see the abundance each day brings as I live each moment as the gift that it is. Thank you for being there when I need you the most. Amen
Loving God. I'm asking you to hear all prayers said and unsaid today. There are so many people with concerns of the heart. I can't imagine what our lives would be without knowing your love is there when times seem the darkest. Please hold them gently and bless them. Amen
Gracious God. Today is going to be another hot day. Please protect each living being. Bless them with water to drink and a cool breeze. Bless us with means to protect our neighbors and the animals who have to be outside today. Thank you for the grace of your unconditional love. Amen
Gracious God, I come today to ask your to help everyone who is grieving. Help them fill the emptiness in their heart. Help them get through another day and help them see the beauty that is left in this life. Walk with them and fill the whole in their hearts with your gracious love. Thank you allowing us to feel love so much it hurts when those who we love the most go home. For it's the relationship with others, self and your energy that bring the beauty in this physical life. In the name of the Holy One, I pray, Amen.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time.
God grant me the knowledge
to know people around me need kindness.
Grant me the wisdom
to look at my brothers and sisters without judgement.
Give me the peace
that stills my mind that I may be connected with you at all times.
God, I thank you for the past week. I had a bed to sleep in, a home to live in, food to eat and wonderful people who surround me. God, please help those who are not as fortunate. Lead them to the things they desire in this life. I know through your energy, we get what we need. Help them with their needs through your grace. Amen
Oh God. Today I ask that you bless all those who have worked to make this country great. Those from the past, present and future. Please send healing to those who have suffered illness from the work they do. Comfort them and their families as they may take this weekend to enjoy the unity of friends and family. Keep all who are traveling safe with your white light of protection. I thank you for the many abundances this country has to offer. In your blessed name I pray, Amen
Infinite Spirit, I call on you today for guidance that I may walk in the light of love and compassion. I pray that all people find the courage to face the things that seem so difficult at times. I give thanks that what ever life hands me today, I know you will be there with me, giving me the strength. Watch over me as I rest peacefully through the night. Amen
Gracious God. I come to you today with thanksgiving. I thank you for you having a hand in who I am. I thank you for loving me no matter what. I thank you for my imperfections that make me perfect in your eyes. Most important, I thank you for your everlasting relationship with me. With thanksgiving I pray, Amen
