Daily Prayers for June 26

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 “Take My Life and Let It Be”

Speed the day of your salvation : come, Lord -Jesus, come.

Psalm 119:131 36

I open my mouth and pant : I long for your commandments.

Turn to me in mercy : as you always do to those who love your name.

Steady my footsteps in your word : let no iniquity have dominion over me.

Rescue me from those who oppress me : and I will keep your commandments.

Let your countenance shine upon your servant : and teach me your statutes.

My eyes shed streams of tears : because -people do not keep your law.

Speed the day of your salvation : come, Lord -Jesus, come.

Ezekiel 34:17 – 24 Acts 12:1 – 17

Speed the day of your salvation : come, Lord -Jesus, come.

Sixteenth-century reformer Lazarus Spengler prayed, “For my feet your holy word is a lantern, a light that shows me the way forward; as this morning star rises upon us we understand the great gifts that God’s Spirit has certainly promised to us, and in these we have our hope.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, we have nothing to fear in your presence. Your purposes always come to pass. Help us to live with such certainty in your power that we expect miracles in our daily lives. 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.
