Prayer in the morning

In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.
(Psalm 5:3)

God of opportunity and purpose,
this day, may I be ready,
to see you in the world and those I meet,
to hear you in the voices of friend and stranger,
to feel you in wind and rain and the warmth of the sun,
to recognise you as you pass by or sit with me
and share joy and sorrow.
May I have the courage to take each opportunity you place in my hands
to serve you and love you in all people,
and may I know your purpose this day,
that in all things I may find life, and live it to the full;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Here you could use the prayer for the week and hold people, places and issues on your heart before God

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.

Holy Spirit, walk with me through this day,
And lead me to life everlasting.
