Daily Prayers for October 5

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 “Nothin’ but the Blood”

Lord -Jesus Christ, Son of God : have mercy on me, a sinner.

Psalm 25:6 10

Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions : remember me according to your love and for the sake of your goodness, O Lord.

Gracious and upright is the Lord : therefore he teaches sinners in his way.

He guides the humble in doing right : and teaches his way to the lowly.

All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness : to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

For your name’s sake, O Lord : forgive my sin, for it is great.

Lord -Jesus Christ, Son of God : have mercy on me, a sinner.

Jeremiah 37:3 – 21 James 3:1 – 12

Lord -Jesus Christ, Son of God : have mercy on me, a sinner.

In the anonymously authored Way of the Pilgrim, we find these words: “My whole desire was fixed upon one thing only — ​to say the Prayer of -Jesus, and as soon as I went on with it I was filled with joy and relief. It was as though my lips and my tongue pronounced the words entirely of themselves without any urging from me. I spent the whole day in a state of the greatest contentment. I lived as though in another world.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, teach us to pray without ceasing, even when words escape us, and to work toward your kingdom, even when we cannot see it. 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.
