Daily Prayers for June 1

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 bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”

Lord, we wait on you : guide us in the time of trouble.

Psalm 3:1 5

Lord, how many adversaries I have! : how many there are who rise up against me!

How many there are who say of me : “There is no help for him in his God.”

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me : you are my glory, the one who lifts up my head.

I call aloud upon the Lord : and he answers me from his holy hill;

I lie down and go to sleep : I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.

Lord, we wait on you : guide us in the time of trouble.

Deuteronomy 4:1 – 9 Acts 1:1 – 14

Lord, we wait on you : guide us in the time of trouble.

Desert father Abba Anthony said, “Pay attention to what I tell you: whoever you may be, always have God before your eyes; whatever you do, do it according to the testimony of the holy Scriptures; in whatever place you live, do not easily leave it. Keep these three precepts and you will be saved.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Grow us slowly, persistently, and deeply, Lord, to be -people who watch without distraction, listen without interruption, and stay put without inclination to flee. 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.
