At the start of the day

Before prayer:

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.

Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.

Let all the tumult within me cease.

Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.



I give me hands to you, Lord,

I offer the work I do, Lord,

I give my thoughts to you, lord,

I give my plans to you, Lord.

give your hands to me, Lord,

let your love set me free, Lord,

keep me close to you, Lord.




For the day and its tasks;

For the world and its needs;

For the local church community.


The Lord’s Prayer.


Gracious and loving God, as I go through today, may I stay close to you.

Fill me with your Spirit to give me your wisdom and your love as I serve others.

Transform me into being more like Jesus. Amen.
