Morning Prayer

Morning Prayers

Oh heavenly Father.

You have brought me again to the beginning of a new day. Thank You.

Bless my efforts today and make them holy in their service to You and to those of Your kingdom whom you place on my way.

In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

+++++++++++++
Forgive me for all the ways I have sinned against you and separated myself from You and the Holy Spirit and for all the ways I will likely sin against You again today.

Unwittingly.
Without intention.
But relentlessly, it seems,
as my weaknesses persist.
Have mercy on me.

Only through Your mercy will I come to recognize and understand my sins well enough to begin — with Your grace and with help from the Holy Spirit — to correct my behavior, my thinking, my understanding.

When the time is right according to Your will, send Your Holy Spirit, Father, to be with me and teach me Your ways and conform me to the will of your Son.

Open my heart a little more this day to hear Your voice, Holy Lord.
Teach me to serve You,
Lead me to be Your hands and Your feet in this world, and
Allow me to help quench Your thirst for souls.
+++

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned against You and separated myself from You and Your Holy Spirit within me.

You know my desire to love and serve You, Lord.
Increase my desire for You, I pray.
You know I love You, Lord.
Teach me to love You better.
Teach me to love You as You deserve.
You know I long to be the person You created me to be.
Mold me. Conform me to Your will.
Strengthen me, that I might be pleasing to you.
You see and hear every errant thought and desire in me.
Cleanse my soul, precious Lord.
+++

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned against You and separated myself from You and Your Holy Spirit within me.

Bless my efforts this day, Lord.
Make them holy, that I might one day behold You face to face.

Until then, oh gracious Lord,
Help me to pray, as St Mother Teresa did, that I might give what you ask and accept what you give, all with joy and a big smile.

Itnotfaotsaoths. Amen
