Liturgy for Morning Worship at Home

Morning Prayer

Opening responses:

From the rising of the sun, till is setting in the west

God’s Holy name be praised

On the lips of children, by the babies at the breast

God’s Holy name be praised

In the visions of the old, and the dreaming of the young

God’s Holy name be praised

In the banquet of heaven, and the forgotten corners of our hearts

Gods Holy name be praised  

Let all that has life and breath, praise the Lord

Amen.  We praise the Lord 

 

Song for the day ahead

Today I awake and God is before me

At night, as I dreamt He summoned the day

For God never sleeps but patterns the morning

With slither of gold or glory in grey

Today I affirm the Spirit within me

At worship and work, in struggle and rest

The Spirit inspires all life which is changing

From fear to faith, from broken to blest

Today I enjoy the Trinity round me,

Above and beneath before and behind

The Maker, the Son, the Spirit together-

They called me to life and call me their friend    (139 Singing the faith )

The Word of God

Read a portion of the Gospel you have chosen to read at this time

Reflect on what God might want you to draw from it today.

Prayers

O God our creator your kindness has brought the  gift of a new morning, help us to leave yesterday and not worry about tomorrow but accept the uniqueness of today

Silence

By your love celebrated in your word, seen in your Son,, brought near by your Spirit,  take from us what we need to carry no longer, so that we may be free again to serve you.

Jesus, Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us

Jesus, Christ, Son of God, have mercy on `

I believe that God forgives and sets us free

We believe that God forgives and sets us free, and at the days beginning we commit ourselves to follow where Christ calls and to love one another

Collect

Lord in these times, when we fear we are losing hope or feel our efforts our futile, let us see in our hearts and minds the image of your resurrection and let it be  a source of courage and strength,

At the beginning of this new day, we remember the lost and the lonely, the broken and breaking, the tried and the aching who long for the nourishment found at your feet. 

Spend some time in silent prayer for the world, for others, and for yourself.

The Lord’s Prayer

Blessing:

Lord, set your blessing upon us, as we begin our day together. Confirm in us the truth by which we rightly live; confront us with the truth from which we wrongly turn.

We ask not for what we want, but for what you know we need, as we offer this day and ourselves for you and to you, through Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Amen

 

The Lord be with you

And also with you
