Prayers for Our Day



A prayer for those involved in warfare
We pray for all those who are in harm's way in the Middle East and Africa. Uphold them with your love and give them the strength to go through the chaos of fighting they must endure. Heal the hurt, console the bereaved and afflicted, protect the innocent and helpless and deliver any who are in peril. Hear us, O God: Your mercy is great.


A Prayer for our Country
Almighty God, we are most blessed in that we live in a country where we can worship you as we know how. May we always remember your generosity and be your faithful servants. Bless our land with honest industry, truthful education, and an honorable way of life. Make us who have come from many nations with many different languages a united people. Guide our leaders that they may show compassion and wisdom in their decisions that affect not only us but others throughout the world. We ask this as your faithful servants and through our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.


A Prayer for Pentecost
O Spirit of God, you are a like a fire, cleansing and consuming; you are a still small voice, you are in and about us; you have formed us into your people and built the church on earth.
Come to us as you did at that first Pentecost and move us to preach your gospel of love. Where our vision is narrow, enlarge it, where we are wrong, set us aright, when we are weary, restore our strength.
Be with us always. Amen.


A Prayer attributed to St. Francis
Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Pray for:
peace and justice,
our elected officials,
those who have lost their jobs,
our schools and our children,
our Church and all who labor in the Gospel,
those who are weak and suffering,
those who have been diagnosed with a disease,
those who are recovering from sickness,
those who have lost a loved one,
and for those who live alone.


Luther's Morning Prayer:
Gracious Jesus, our Lord and our God, at this hour you bore our sins in your own body on the tree so that we, being dead to sin, might live unto righteousness. Have mercy upon us now and at the hour of our death, and grant to us, your servants, with all others who devoutly remember your blessed Passion, a holy and peaceful life in this world and, through your grace, eternal glory in the life to come; where, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, you live and reign, God forever. Amen


Luther's Noon Prayer
Heavenly Father, in whom we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Luther's Evening Prayer
We give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son, that you have this day so graciously protected us. We beg you to forgive us all our sins and the wrong which we have done. By your great mercy defend us from all the perils and dangers of this night. Into your hands we commend our bodies and souls, and all that is ours. Let your holy angels have charge of us, that the wicked one have no power over us. Amen


A Prayer Before Travel
Lord God our Father, you kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star you led the Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now in this time as we set out to travel, make our ways safe and our homecomings joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where you dwell in glory with your Son and the Holy Spirit, God forever. Amen
