Daily Prayers for July 13

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”

Against the torrent of oblivion : we plead the blood of -Jesus.

Psalm 69:1 3, 18

Save me, O God : for the waters have risen up to my neck.

I am sinking in deep mire : and there is no firm ground for my feet.

I have come into deep waters : and the torrent washes over me.

“Answer me, O Lord, for your love is kind : in your great compassion, turn to me.”

Against the torrent of oblivion : we plead the blood of -Jesus.

Judges 11:1 – 11, 29 – 40 Acts 19:21 – 41

Against the torrent of oblivion : we plead the blood of -Jesus.

This prayer is from the second-century Christian writings known as the Acts of John: “To thee I call who art God alone: the one who is exceedingly great, the Unutterable One, the Incomprehensible One; to whom all powers of government are subject; before whom every authority bows, and before whom all that is high falls down and remains silent; at whose voice the demons take fright; and beholding whom all creation surrenders in silent adoration.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

God of all grace, in foolishness and humility we often dare to speak on your behalf, claiming to know your ways and making promises we struggle to keep. Help us learn to be still, trusting that you indeed are God. 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.
