WAY OF LIFE -  A FORM OF DAILY PRAYER

Preparation

We commend ourselves and our prayers to God.  In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

That this day and all our days may be full of God’s praise, let us pray with one heart and mind.

keep a short time of silence to recall God’s presence with you.

Almighty God, by whose grace alone we are accepted and called to your service: strengthen us by your Holy Spirit and make us worthy of our calling; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Word of God 
Psalm 119.1-8  Rejoicing in God’s Way

Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes.

Blessed are those whose way is pure, who walk in the law of the Lord.

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies and seek him with their whole heart,

Those who do no wickedness, but walk in his ways.

You, O Lord, have charged that we should diligently keep your commandments.

Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes.

O that my ways were made so direct that I might keep your statutes.

Then should I not be put to shame, because I have regard for all your commandments.

I will thank you with an unfeigned heart, when I have learned your righteous judgements.

I will keep your statutes; O forsake me not utterly.

Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever.   Amen.

Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes. 

Canticle

Isaiah 43 (selected verses) God makes a Way for us

I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

‘I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.’

Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters,

‘Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.

‘Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

‘I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people,

‘The people whom I formed for myself, that they might declare my praise.’

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

New Testament Reading

After the reading, have a time of reflection then say

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and be not wise in your own sight.

In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and be not wise in your own sight.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and be not wise in your own sight.

Prayers

A time of quiet may be kept for prayer or speak them aloud, then say

 

We affirm the presence of God among us, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

God calls us to journey ‘up’, sharing in worship and prayer.

Jesus said, God is spirit and whoever worships must worship in spirit and in truth.

Jesus, you are the Way: guide us on our journey.


God calls us to journey ‘in’, sharing in the transformation of Christ.

Jesus said, Remain in me, and I will remain in you.

Jesus, you are the Way: guide us on our journey. 

 

 
   

God calls us to journey ‘with’,

sharing in love and fellowship.

Jesus said,  Where two or three are gathered in my name,  I am there among them.

Jesus, you are the Way: guide us on our journey.

 

God calls us to journey ‘out’,

sharing his love in deeds and words.

Jesus said, go and make disciples of all nations.

Jesus, you are the Way: guide us on our journey.

 

Eternal God, your Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life for all creation: grant us grace to walk in his way, to rejoice in his truth, and to share his risen life; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

As followers of the Way, let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lord bless us, and preserve us from all evil, and lead us in the Way of Life. Amen.

Let us bless the Lord. Thanks be to God.
