Morning Prayer

(Epiphany 3)

Life-giving God,
each morning I am awakened
by your goodness nudging the earth to life. I am filled with wonder.
How precious is your steadfast love!
It shines like the dawn, and dews the desolation of my soul.
Manifest in me the gifts of your Spirit that I may rejoice in you
as I delight in serving your world this day. Amen.

Evening Prayer

(Epiphany 3)

 

As evening falls
and darkness shutters the day, 
do not forsake us, O God. 
Crown the sky with jewels of light
that your salvation may illumine the earth and all find refuge in the shadow of your wings. Amen.
