Monday morning prayer

Lord,

Sometimes, Monday can be a hard day. Dreaded on Sunday and fled from on a Friday. Yet why Lord as Monday could be the beginning of a work adventure, the new challenge of a week filled with potential? So I pray you would help me to embrace this day.

Let it be a new day and a wonder day. Help me to see not the clouds but the sunrise, not the rain but the ripples of falling drops. Show me the joy of the embrace with loved ones, not the tensions and troubles. Monday need not be the grudge day to be endured but the fun day to be embraced.

This day, help me to turn my eyes towards your Kingdom, of love, hope and new beginnings.

Amen.




Monday prayer for work

Almighty God,

Who created a living, breathing universe, an earth in balance and the miracle of life. Today as I go to work I choose to gaze upon the beauty of your creation, to see the glory of your kingdom, and to take in the wonders of your love. Lord, I give this day to you, that I may faithfully serve you and love others.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Early Morning Prayer

(the prayer poem in the film above)

I come before you O Lord
As the sun rises may your hope rise up in me.
As the birds sing may your love flow out of me.
As the light floods into this new day,
May your joy shine through me.
I come before you, O Lord
And drink in this moment of peace,
That I may carry something of your hope, love and joy
Today in my heart.

Amen.

Short Monday Evening Prayer

In the quiet of the evening
I give thanks for this day.
As I feel my heart beating
I stop now to pray.
Lord I give you the things that I've done, felt or seen,
And ask you'd watch over my sleep and my dreams.
Lord let me arise with a song in my heart
To face a new day and go play my part.
Whatever the time, you are right by my side,
Each day spent with you
Is a day full of life!

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More
