Daily Prayers for June 9

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 “Solid Rock”

The Lord of hosts is with us : the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Psalm 46:1 4

God is our refuge and strength : a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved : and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea;

though its waters rage and foam : and though the mountains tremble at its tumult.

The Lord of hosts is with us : the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

The Lord of hosts is with us : the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Deuteronomy 12:1 – 12 Acts 6:1 – 15

The Lord of hosts is with us : the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

John Wesley, who founded the Methodist movement, wrote, “One of the principle rules of religion is to lose no occasion of serving God. And since he is invisible to our eyes, we are to serve him in our neighbor; which he receives as if done to himself in person, standing visibly before us.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, we want to serve you in the love we show our neighbors. Teach us to embrace each person made in your image as if we were greeting 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.
