Daily prayer

Prayer is  the most intimate way of thanking the Lord for our blessings and also asking for guidance on issues affecting you and your family. It is important to try and keep this in your daily structure so that you can keep refering back to the actions of Christ and his followers for action . But prayer does not always have to be a solitary action. It can also be something that you undertake with a group and share your experiences.

While one does not always need to follow a rigid prayer, having a text gives you the opportunity to reflect on new and pressing issues that one might not always do alonge.

Prayer of St Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous: to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek to rest; to labour and to ask for no reward save that of knowing I do your will.

Amen

Offering the Day

Lord, we come to you before we begin our day's work:we ask you to bless this day. May we find whatever is good in the tasks we are set and the time that we share.Help us when we find some things too hard to understand; Teach us to be fair and generous with one another; So may we thank you for a day well spent.

Amen

Before the Day’s Work
George Dawson 1821-76

Lord, as we go to our work this day, help us to take pleasure therein. Show us clearly what our duty is, help us to be faithful in doing it. May all we do be well done, fit for thine eye to see. Give us enthusiasm to attempt, patience to perform. When we cannot love our work, may we think of it as thy task, and make what is unlovely beautiful through loving service, for thy name’s sake.

Amen

Prayer for Guidance
Charles Kingsley 1819-75
Lord, guide me, teach me, strengthen me,‘till I become such a person as thou would have me be; pure and gentle, truthful and high-minded, brave and able, courteous and generous, dutiful and useful.

Amen
