Daily Prayers for December 5


Daily Prayers for December 5
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 “We Shall Overcome”

You speak in my heart and say, “Seek my face” : your face, Lord, will I seek.

Psalm 27:1 – 4

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? : the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?

When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh : it was they, my foes and my adversaries, who stumbled and fell.

Though an army should encamp against me : yet my heart shall not be afraid;

and though war should rise up against me : yet will I put my trust in him.

You speak in my heart and say, “Seek my face” : your face, Lord, will I seek.

Isaiah 2:12 – 22 Luke 20:41 – 21:4

You speak in my heart and say, “Seek my face” : your face, Lord, will I seek.

Nineteenth-century abolitionist Sojourner Truth said, “I’m not going to die, honey. I’m going home like a shooting star.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, when we strive after healing in the world and nourishment for those who hunger, we find you at our side. Whenever we long to see your face, help us not to avoid the corners of our communities where you most often dwell. Stir our hearts that we might seek and find you today in those places where you have promised to be. 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.
