radioalba.org Christian – Morning Prayers in a 30 minute cycle from 8.00 and 8.15
until 12.00 noon concluding with a little ‘Music Choice’ including Neil Gow’s Lament
and The Castle of Drummore filling up the end part of the 30 minutes.
Morning Prayer for the 1st week of the cycle beginning 24th August is led by Hugh Kelly

your children everywhere yearn for contentment and peace,
yet so many have lives made difficult by deprivation and other evils.
Let none of us lose sight of the inalienable dignity of all that is human,
nor of your care for each one of us.
Come and save us, Lord,
for you we long.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
At the end of the Morning Prayer the sung blessing: ‘May the Lord bless us and keep us from harm, and may he lead us to eternal life’ is followed by Wesley’s evocative ‘Lead me, Lord.
Schools Morning Prayer comes from St Monica’s Primary School in Milton, Glasgow. The Prayer opens with a snatch of ‘The Dark Island’ and the imaginative use of a ‘Scots’ idiom lets the the readings and prayers be comprehensible – well done, St Monica’s.
