Daily Prayers for March 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 bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “It Is Well with My Soul”

My soul waits for the Lord : more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Psalm 130

Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice : let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.

If you, Lord, were to note what is done amiss : O Lord, who could stand?

For there is forgiveness with you : therefore you shall be feared.

I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him : in his word is my hope.

My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning : more than watchmen for the morning.

O Israel, wait for the Lord : for with the Lord there is mercy;

with him there is plenteous redemption : and he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.

My soul waits for the Lord : more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Exodus 12:28 – 39 Mark 9:42 – 50

My soul waits for the Lord : more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Sadhu Sundar Singh, an early twentieth-century Indian missionary, wrote, “A silkworm was struggling out of the cocoon and an ignorant man saw it battling as if in pain, so he went and helped it to get free, but very soon after it fluttered and died. The other silkworms that struggled out without help suffered, but they came out into full life and beauty, with wings made strong for flight by their battle for fresh existence.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, mold us and form us into the kind of -people you want us to be. Be patient with us when we fall short of what love demands of us. And give us patience with ourselves. Catch us in the arms of your grace. 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.
