Lord of the Storm


Almighty God,
Lord of the storm and of the calm,
of day and night, of life and death,
I pray that You will keep my heart steadfast upon Your faithfulness,
that I may continually see the miraculous in the world around me and
in the changed lives of those who have found the magnificent freedom in following You.
Amen

The Good Times Are All Gone


The depressed person sometimes thinks that the good times are all past, that there is nothing left for the present or the future. These melancholic thoughts are deeply rooted in Satan's preference for days gone by, for memory and the sense that time is passing.

Humor


Lord, help me see the humor today in something that would ordinarily make me mad.

Protection


May the strength of God pilot us.
May the power of God preserve us.
May the wisdom of God instruct us.
May the hand of God protect us.
May the way of God direct us.
May the shield of God defend us.
May the host of God guard us against the snares of the evil one and the temptations of the world.
May Christ be with us.
Christ before us.
Christ in us, Christ over us.
May Your salvation, O Lord, be always ours this day and for evermore.
Amen.

Hear Us O Lord


Hear us, O Lord, as we now pray,
dedicate us to Your way;
lead us to work that bears your fruit,
giving knowledge of Your truth.

Open our door and enter in,
rescue from darkness and from sin.

Strengthen according to Your might, share with us the promised life.
