Daily Prayers for November 25

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 “It Is Well with My Soul”

Wake us to your presence, Lord : that we might not waste our times of trial.

Psalm 119:65 68

O Lord, you have dealt graciously with your servant : according to your word.

Teach me discernment and knowledge : for I have believed in your commandments.

Before I was afflicted I went astray : but now I keep your word.

You are good and you bring forth good : instruct me in your statutes.

Wake us to your presence, Lord : that we might not waste our times of trial.

Nahum 1:1 – 13 Revelation 22:6 – 13

Wake us to your presence, Lord : that we might not waste our times of trial.

Twentieth-century mystic Simone Weil wrote, “Affliction compels us to recognize as real what we do not think possible.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

What would you teach us today in our trials, Lord? Make us receptive! Help us see your victory and compassion rather than look for easy answers to our troubles. So make us expectant, Lord, and patient. 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.
