Call to Praise and Prayer

I AM bending my knee

In the eye of the Father who created me,

In the eye of the Son who died for me,

In the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me,

     In love and desire.

Pour down upon us from heaven

The rich blessing of Thy forgiveness;

Thou who art uppermost in the City,

     Be Thou patient with us.

Grant to us, Thou Saviour of Glory,

The fear of God, the love of God, and His affection,

And the will of God to do on earth at all times

As angels and saints do in heaven;

Each day and night give us Thy peace.

     Each day and night give us Thy peace.

The Guiding Light of Eternity

As Thou art the Shepherd over the flock

Tend Thou us to the cot and the fold,

Sain us beneath Thine own glorious mantle;

      Thou Shield of protection, guard us for ever,

Be Thou a hard triumphant slave

To shield us securely from wicked hell,

From the fiends and from the stieve snell gullies,

      And from the lurid smoke of the abyss.

Be my soul in the trustance of the High King,

Be Michael the powerful meeting my soul.

Daily Psalm

Psalm from the Daily Lectionary

Prayers of Intercession

GOD, I am bathing my face

In the nine rays of the sun,

As Mary bathed her Son

     In generous milk fermented.

Sweetness be in my face,

Riches be in my countenance,

Comb-honey be in my tongue,

     My breath as the incense.

Black is yonder house,

Blacker men therein;

I am the white swan,

     Queen over them.

I will go in the name of God,

In likeness of deer, in likeness of horse,

In likeness of serpent, in likeness of king,

     More victorious am I than all persons.

The Lord’s Prayer

Blessing
GOD guide me with Thy wisdom,

God chastise me with Thy justice,

God help me with Thy mercy,

God protect me with Thy strength.

God fill me with Thy fullness,

God shield me with Thy shade,

God fill me with Thy grace,

For the sake of Thine Anointed Son.

Jesu Christ of the seed of David,

Visiting One of the Temple,

Sacrificial Lamb of the Garden,

Who died for me.
