Daily Prayers for June 27

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 “Be Thou My Vision”

Surely God is in this place : and I did not know it.

Psalm 122:1 5

I was glad when they said to me : “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

Now our feet are standing : within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city : that is at unity with itself;

to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord : the assembly of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.

For there are the thrones of judgment : the thrones of the house of David.

Surely God is in this place : and I did not know it.

Ezekiel 37:1 – 14 Acts 12:18 – 25

Surely God is in this place : and I did not know it.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We would like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. And yet, it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability — ​and that it may take a very long time. Above all, trust in the slow work of God, our loving vine-dresser.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

You show up, -Jesus, in the most unlikely places. Give us patience to wait and watch when we cannot sense your presence so that we may be ready to greet you where we are. 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.
