Prayer For Sunday
You have clothed this world in beauty,
from morning mist dissolving into summer day
to the splendid isolation of a mountain peak;
from flowers of the field in all their radiant hues
to butterfly emerging from chrysalis, all speak
of the artist's vision and creativity,
the loving brushstrokes with which you paint.
And if you should take such care with these,
then who are we to doubt the value that you place
on those whose hearts contain the maker's mark?
We shall not worry what tomorrow brings,
for even in sorrow you bring us joy
and instead shall praise you for all good things!
I arise to day
Through God's strength to pilot me :
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils.
From temptations of vices,
From every one who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear.
Alone and in a multitude.
The world turns, The sun rises, The birds sing, The dawn breaks. The beauty of your creation, Unfolds afresh, bathed in light! I give you my life, I notice my breath, I appreciate the comfort of nourishment. I soak up the light of a new day Full of possibility and joy. Thank you Lord!
O God our King, by the resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ on the first day of the week, you conquered sin, put death to flight, and gave us the hope of everlasting life: Redeem all our days by this victory; forgive our sins, banish our fears, make us bold to praise you and to do your will; and steel us to wait for the consummation of your kingdom on the last great Day; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Today we celebrate Your magnificent splendour For by Your hand You placed time in motion From the first day of creation until this day Your creative wonders have filled the universe Today we celebrate Your mighty power For by Your hand you raised Christ from the grave From resurrection Sunday until this day Your love has given life to all mankind Father we thank you for today We give this special day over to You May we rest in Your presence Bathe in Your goodness And celebrate Your eternal life This day and always Amen
You are all mighty and worthy and we are so very honored that we serve a God of abundance. And out of Your abundance, we ask that You bless us.
Multiply our every work so that our cup will run over. Let the springs of living water flow through us so that we may be a blessing to others. In Jesus' mighty name we pray, Amen!
Heavenly father I thank you for this beautiful Sunday morning.
Only you can wake us up from a deep sleep and still give us the strength for each day.
I thank you for giving me another chance at life, another chance to make things right and another chance for a fresh start.
Because of your mercy, forgiveness is made real and I am able to let go of yesterday's mess for a fresh start today.
Because of your grace, the gift of life is entrusted into my hands so that I can live wisely.
Because of your love, I am spared new moments and a brand new beginning in life is given to me.
Thank you for the grace, hope, faith and love released on earth that help make today worth living.
Father, open my ears to hear your instructions today.
Help me be receptive to what you say to me at all times.
Give me the vision to see this day in the way you need me to see it.
Cause my heart to be aligned with your heart.
May this world will become a better place as you work through me today.
I pray that I will be more responsible in the things that you have committed to my hands.
May I be more proactive and less reactive in situations around me
Lord, order my steps and direct my paths.
Let every decision I make today be in line with your will.
I pray that my actions will be aligned to your plans for me this day.
Help me to lean and rest in you throughout today.

Thank You for this Sunday. Lord, we come before you first and foremost with hearts of gratitude. You have seen us through another week, and we stand at the threshold of a fresh week, full of new beginnings. Lord, help us start this bright embarking with You. Stir in us a deep desire to come into further relationship with You. Remind us that it is not solely by going to Sunday service that we worship and come before You; rather, it is through the daily communion with You through relationship and prayer.
Highlight to us how we may be obedient to Your call and heart. Embrace us with Your love, oh Lord, for we desperately desire to know You and to feel Your love around us. Give us a hunger for Your Word and truth, oh Lord. Help us begin our week this day in preparation through contemplation and connection with You.
In Jesus name, Amen.
