Daily Prayers for January 20

O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you

as the day rises to meet the sun.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Come, let us sing to the Lord : let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.

Song “All Creatures of Our God and King”

Bless the Lord, O my soul : how excellent is your greatness.

Psalm 104:2 6

You wrap yourself with light as with a cloak : and spread out the heavens like a curtain.

You lay the beams of your chambers in the waters above : you make the clouds your chariot; you ride on the wings of the wind.

You make the winds your messengers : and flames of fire your servants.

You have set the earth upon its foundations : so that it never shall move at any time.

You covered it with the Deep as with a mantle : the waters stood higher than the mountains.

Bless the Lord, O my soul : how excellent is your greatness.

Genesis 13:2 – 18 Ephesians 1:1 – 14

Bless the Lord, O my soul : how excellent is your greatness.

John Calvin, sixteenth-century theologian and reformer, wrote, “The creation is quite like a spacious and splendid house, provided and filled with the most exquisite and the most abundant furnishings. Everything in it tells us of God.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, wherever we look today, allow us to catch a glimpse of you. And whenever others look at us today, allow them to catch a glimpse of you. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you : wherever he may send you;

may he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;

may he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;

may he bring you home rejoicing : once again into our doors.
