Leader Blessed are you, creator of all,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As your dawn renews the face of the earth
bringing light and life to all creation,
may we rejoice in this day you have made;
as we wake refreshed from the depths of sleep,
open our eyes to behold your presence
and strengthen our hands to do your will,
that the world may rejoice and give you praise.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
All Blessed be God for ever.
Leader The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind.
Silence is kept.
As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever.
A Psalm is read together and the Bible readings for the day are read by volunteers
We pray for:
for the day and its tasks
for the world and its needs
for the church and her life
Anyone can pray during this time. Give space to be quiet and feel comfortable with times of silence. If you have not prayed aloud before don’t worry if it is not that eloquent – God understands!
Intercessions end with the Lord’s Prayer
All Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Leader Let us go into the world
bearing the Good News of the Kingdom.
All Let us go with Christ’s peace in our hearts.
