Daily Prayers for July 24

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 “Guide My Feet”

Guide my feet, Lord, guide me : make straight the way to your house.

Psalm 119:1 5

Happy are they whose way is blameless : who walk in the law of the Lord!

Happy are they who observe his decrees : and seek him with all their hearts!

who never do any wrong : but always walk in his ways.

You laid down your commandments : that we should fully keep them.

Oh, that my ways were made so direct : that I might keep your statutes!

Guide my feet, Lord, guide me : make straight the way to your house.

1 Sam-uel 1:21 – 2:11 Acts 24:24 – 25:12

Guide my feet, Lord, guide me : make straight the way to your house.

Listen to these words from Quaker author and educator Parker Palmer: “The power of a fully lived life or a truly learned mind is not a power to be sought or contrived. It comes only as we let go of what we possess and find ourselves possessed by a truth greater than our own.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord God, our hands are open to you. Our ears are listening to you. Our eyes are watching you. Our hearts are trying to beat with yours. Live in us and love others through us today. 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.
