Prayers for the Journey

by Christine Sine

Many of the prayers this week have focused on Syria, 9/11 and the call to peace. Reflect and enjoy.

The world you have given us is a fragile place


A prayer for this weekend as USA considers military strikes into Syria. Let our voice be heard by God and by a watching world.

Other prayers add to our collection of morning and evening prayers (coming soon in downloadable form). I am more and more convinced that we need to begin and end each day with prayer as well as pausing through the day to recentre and refocus on God

God, infinite, eternal, every present One,
As the night descends ,
I give this day into your hands.
Creator, who made me in your image,
I commend it to you,
All I have done to create beauty and life.
Redeemer whose loving action bought my freedom,
I commend to you,
All I have done to bring freedom, justice and wholeness.
Sustainer who taught me kingdom ways,
I commend to you,
All I have done to share love, compassion and generosity.
God of the universe, Lord of the earth,
I give this day into your hands,
Take its joys and sorrows,
Take its laughter and tears,
Take its strengths and weaknesses,
In the darkness of night,
Revive, renew, restore,

Lord Jesus Christ,
I commit this day to you.
Each breath I have taken,
Each deed I have done,
Each person I have met,
I place them in your hands.
Lord what I have breathed in of you,
May it lodge in my heart and mind.
Lord what I have breathed in that is not of you,
May I exhale its toxicity away from body.
In sleep may I find rest,
Breathing out the anxieties that have stressed me,
Breathing in your calming presence.
Lord Jesus Christ ,
I commit this day to you,
All it has held belongs to you.

My lord I have no idea where I am going source unknown

Following prayers uploaded by Micha Jazz

Jesus, Savior, pilot me
Over life’s tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
Chart and compass come from Thee;
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.” Thomas Merton
