Household Prayers

Morning Prayer

Holy God,
you are light, and in you there is no darkness at all.
Shift my focus today
from whatever is false to that which is true;
from whatever is vulgar to that which is honorable;
from whatever is corrupt to that which is just;
from whatever is inauthentic to that which is pure;
from whatever is detestable to that which is pleasing;
from whatever is insignificant to that which is commendable;
that I may live in the light.
Through Christ Jesus I pray. Amen.

Evening Prayer

God, your love is steadfast and enduring.
May your peace, which surpasses all understanding,
hem me in, behind and before,
as I lie down to rest. Amen.
