1.27. 2020 Morning Prayer


Grant, O most gracious God, that I may carry with me through this day’s life the remembrance of the sufferings and death of Jesus Christ my Lord.

For His readiness to suffer for our sakes:

For the redemptive passion that filled His heart;

For the power of His Cross in the history of the world since He came:

For the noble army of martyrs and for all who are willing to die that others may live:

For all suffering freely chosen for noble ends, for pain bravely endured, for temporal          sorrows that have been used for building up of eternal joys:

                                                            I praise and bless Thy holy name.

Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee.

Glory be to Thee, O Father, and to Thee, O Christ, and to Thee, O Holy Spirit, and for ever and ever.                                     Amen.
