Morning Prayer 1 2018

From the rising of the sun to its setting
great is the name of the Lord:
high above the heavens is his glory.
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever.  Amen.

 

Psalm 8  What is man that you should keep him in mind?  Mortal man that you should care for him?  

When I see the heavens which your hands have made,moon and stars and everything which you arranged,
What is man that you should keep him in mind, mortal man that you should ever care for him?
What is man that you should keep him in mind?  Mortal man that you should care for him?  

You have made him little less than any god, you have blest and honoured him above all things
you have given him a share in your power, you have put creation underneath his feet.
What is man that you should keep him in mind? Mortal man that you should care for him?

Glory to the Father, glory to the Son
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.
What is man that you should keep him in mind? Mortal man that you should care for him?

Let us pray

Creator, God,
We are filled with awe
as we look at the worlds you have made,
and overwhelmed with gratitude
as we see the responsibility you have placed upon us.
Guide us to care for each other
and to reverence ‘the work of your hands.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Benedictus verse 1

 

Blest be the Lord the God of Israel,

who came to us; and brought us back from sin.

God raised for us a Saviour who is mighty;

his Saviour-Son from David’s house and line.

God promised this through holy men and women

who spoke for him down through the mists of time.

May the Lord bless us and keep us from all harm;
and may he lead us to eternal life.
Amen.
