“Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice.” – Ps. 27:7
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth. Thou art our God, and the God and Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through Whom we, Thy children of faith, have the forgiveness of our sins Thou art our father’s God; and Whom they in the flesh confidently worshipped, we, their children, would also reverently worship and adore.
Humbly, yet devoutly, would we give thanks to Thee, O God, for Thy great love revealed to us in Christ; and for Thy rich and unfailing providences to us, and to all men. For Jesus’ sake, receive our thanks. Continue Thy loving favors to us, and grant us pardon for sin, and life eternal.
Give us, we beseech Thee, the Holy Spirit as our Guide this day, into truth. May He ever comfort us and all Thine in times of sorrow or of trial. May He strengthen us when we are weak. May He raise us up again, if we fall. May He interpret Thy Word to us, and enable us to do Thy holy will with gladness of heart.
With us, bless also this, our nation, and the whole world with Heavenly peace, for Jesus sake. Amen

“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer.” – Isa. 65:24 ~
Our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for our home and our work and our friends. The morning calls us to the joy and toil and trial of a new day, and we want to begin in right, in the sense of Thy nearness and care.
Give us strength to meet the common duties of the day, and to live with our kindred and friends happily and helpfully. In our school life, in our home-making, and in our business, may we be guided by the purposes of Jesus. If it be Thy good will, keep us from great temptation to do wrong; and furnish us with strength for the trials which Thou willest us to endure.
May Thy healing and comfort abide with those we live, who are in sorrow and sickness; make them brave and hopeful.
We pray Thee to prosper us in our work, in order that we may use all our gains for the good of others.
May our home and family be the abiding place of Him Who promised to be in the midst of those who love Him. In His Name. Amen.
