Grant that in all our ways and doings we may remember that you see us, and may always have grace to know and perceive what things you would have us do, and give us strength to do the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
you gave up your Son
out of love for the world:
lead us to ponder the mysteries of his passion,
that we may know eternal peace
through the shedding of our Saviour's blood,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
O Lord, open our lips
and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
Let your ways be known upon earth,
Your saving power among the nations.
Glory to the Father and to the Son
And to the Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning is now
And shall be for ever.
Let us pray, dear friends,
For the holy Church of God throughout the world,
That God the almighty Father
Guide it and gather it together
So that we may worship him
In peace and tranquility.
Almighty and eternal God,
You have shown your glory to all nations
In Christ, Your Son.
Guide the work of your Church.
Help it to persevere in faith,
Proclaim Your name,
And bring Your salvation to people everywhere.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
For the glory of the heavens
set above us,
the majesty of the earth
and the mysteries of nature
that amaze us,
we stand in awe and thank you.
For your love which every day
has cared for us,
the protection of your arms
which shelter us
and the mystery of your grace
offered to us,
we stand in awe and thank you.
Creator God, we glimpse your beauty
in setting sun, mountain top, eagle's wing.
We sense your power in thunder crash,
lightning flash and ocean's roar.
Creator God we praise you
Precious Jesus, we see your love
stretched out upon a cruel cross.
We stand in awe at your sacrifice,
pure love poured out for humankind.
Precious Jesus we praise you

in lives transformed, hearts on fire.
We listen for your still, small voice,
comforting, guiding, calling.
Holy Spirit we praise you
Father, thank You for this Friday. Thank You for seeing us through another work week and bringing us to the weekend. Father, we pray that this weekend will be filled with rest, refreshment, and quiet time with You. Our lives can seem so overwhelming and confusing, but we know that You are there by our side always.
Lord, thank You for guiding our path. We know that You are doing 10,000 things in our lives, even if we are only aware of a few of them. Lord, help us recognize Your Spirit. Bring us deeper into a knowledge of You, so that even in times of adversity, we can rest in the knowledge that You are with us.
Holy Spirit, please wash us with Your love. We repent of our sins, and we pray for help to do better in time. We rejoice that You are forgiving and full of such a grace that ushers us forth into freedom. Our times and our days rest in Your hands, and we know that even in anguish, You have a plan for our benefit and the glorification of the kingdom. Help us to trust You in such times and be filled with overwhelming peace.
Thank You, Lord, for this beautiful day. May we increase in You, may we come into an abundance of Your love.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
