Morning Prayer

Tuesday, October 14th

opening sentence and prayer
Opening Sentence and Prayer

I prayed, and understanding was given me;

I called on God,

and the spirit of wisdom came to me.

Wisdom 7:7

let us pray
Let us pray:

O God, whose spirit fills the world

and holds all things together,

we come as children of the earth

yet created for incorruption,

as born from our mother’s wombs

yet made in the image of eternity.

slide4
And so we gather

at the start of the day

looking for the light that is brighter than the sun

and the peace that is deeper than night’s stillness.

We seek the spirit that never dies,

and which day by day renews the life of the earth.

slide5
We seek your gift of wisdom, O God,

which no darkness or power of confusion can overcome,

and pray that in seeking wisdom

we may find it,

and in finding it

find friendship with you.

slide6
Lord have mercy upon us.

Christ have mercy upon us.

Lord have mercy upon us.

Silence

a song of wisdom s glory
A Song of Wisdom’s Glory

Leader -

Wisdom is a breath of the power of God,

a reflection of eternal light,

and an image of his goodness.

All –

In every generation she passes into holy souls

and makes them friends of God, and prophets.

slide9
Leader –

For God loves nothing so much as the person who lives with wisdom.

All –

She is more beautiful than the sun,

and excels every constellation of the stars.

Leader –

Compared with the light she is found to be superior,

for the day is succeeded by the night,

but against wisdom evil does not prevail.

Wisdom 7

closing prayer
Closing Prayer

Guide us, O God, on the unknown journey ahead.

Whether it is through blessing or danger, save us from a deep forgetfulness

that does not remember your guidance in the past

and of many before us.

slide12
Like those who passed through the waves of the sea

and through wasteland and wilderness,

guide us too to places of promise

and grant us eyes to see the flame of life

that we are to follow.

slide13
May glimmerings of the imperishable light

that glisten within and around us

strengthen our hope in the long awaited day

when the goodness of creation and your angels of light

will overcome evil

like a mighty tempest winnowing away all wrong.

Then, O God,

the life that is rooted in you

will stand secure.

Amen.
