During these days of uncertainty and isolation, we encourage you to pray along with so many others all over the country. Here are some short Daily Prayers that you could use during this time.

God, God the Maker

God, God the Maker;
Maker of colour, sound, texture, quietness and the restless beauty in living things;
we bless You

God, God the Maker;                                                                                                                                      
Maker of granite and mustard seed; of grey cloud and starlight, of thunder and heartbeat;
we bless you.  

God, God the Maker;                                                                                                                                   
Maker of all that is unseen, of all that has been, of all that words could never capture;
we bless you.  

God, God the Maker;
we, the children of your love, the creatures of your kindness, the guardians of your creation bless you.

We bless You for your making, your trusting, your loving, your never-ending goodness. Amen


All that I am, Lord

All that I am, Lord - I place into your hands
Everything I work for - I place into your hands
Everything I hope for - I place into your hands
The troubles that weary me - I place into your hands
The thoughts that disturb me - I place into your hands
Each that I pray for - I place into your hands
Each that I care for - I place into your hands                      
The choices I make - I place into your hands                      
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed by thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen
 

Calm us, O Lord, as you stilled the storm

Calm us, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.
Still us, O Lord; keep us from harm.
Let all the tumult within us cease.
Enfold us, O Lord, in your peace.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
