A Morning Prayer

Heavenly Father, to you belong
glory and honour,
creation is Yours,
as is the art of man.

To You Lord God
we turn our hearts in worship.
To You belong
the offerings of thanks.

Thank You for all
that You have made
for all that You have done.
We only know the very outer layer.

Sovereign Lord,
nothing is too hard for you,
anything, everything living
only has its existence through You,
even Satan himself.

Thank You that Your power
is greater, higher, stronger
than any created being.

Give us today our daily needs.
Enable us to forgive everyone
who sins against us,
to be totally confident
that You will bring about justice.

Father, we praise You
for Your truth.
We hold on to Your truth.
Protect us from the evil one.
Give us discernment.
Help us to speak in truth and love.

For those we hold dear,
help them to live lives of grace,
to learn Your unforced rhythms.
Release, restore, those who are in slavery
to anything negatively addictive
so that they might be free to obey,
living in Your freedom.

Help us to face today
with arms open wide in welcome,
hearts full and overflowing
with Your love.
May the words of our mouths
and the meditations of our hearts
be acceptable to You, O Lord.
