A Prayer for Today the First Sunday of Advent (30-November-14)

Almighty God,
give us grace to cast away the works of darkness
and to put on the armour of light,
now in the time of this mortal life,
in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility;
that on the last day,
when he shall come again in his glorious majesty
to judge the living and the dead,
we may rise to the life immortal;
through him who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

A Prayer for Today (23-November-14)

You raised up your Son, O God,
and seated him at your right hand
as the shepherd and king
who seeks what is lost,
binds up what is wounded,
and strengthens what is weak.
Empowered by the Spirit,
grant that we may share with others
that which we have received from your hand,
to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Prayer for Today (16-November-14)

You, O God, are our dwelling-place
from generation to generation,
our shield from anguish and distress.
You arm us as children of light
with the hope of salvation,
and you protect us by your love.
Give us grace to build up
and encourage one another,
as we seek wisdom and abundant life
in the strength of your Word
and the assurance of your Spirit.

A Prayer for Today (9-November-14)

Ever-living God,
you inscribe our names in your book of life
so that we may share in the firstfruits of salvation.
Grant that we may acknowledge Christ as our redeemer
and, trusting in him,
be confident that none of your own will be lost or forgotten.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

A Prayer for Today (2-November-14)

Your steadfast love endures from age to age, O living God,
for as Christ you tenderly care for your people.
Instruct us in your way of humble service,
that we may imitate his saving deeds
who humbled himself for our salvation
and is now exalted with you in splendor
for ever and ever.
