YHWH, let my soul rise to meet you
as the day rises to meet the sun.
Prayers for Others
Our Everlasting Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your freedom come; Your neighborhood and family come.
Your will be done, on the earth-here-now as it is in heaven-ever-after.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive our debts (what we owe), our sins (when we have missed the mark), and our trespasses (when we have gone astray or damaged the critical edge) as we forgive our debtors (by letting go of grudges), those who sin against us (by not harboring resentment, or planning revenge, or rehashing the past), and those who step on us or disrespect us.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
And do not put us through the trial (like Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22 or Job), but deliver us, save us, provide for us, and have mercy on us.
For the freedom, the neighborhood, and family; and the power, the truth, and the grace; and the glory and the cross are Yours, now and forever. Amen.
(Daily Prayer) Remind me that true wealth comes from a sustainable way of life for all.
Grant me peace with who I am and the courage to become more like the Messiah.
Give me the words to protect the worker, widow, and orphan; because I-myself am a working man, I may become an orphan, my children may become orphans, and my wife may become a widow.
Give me a heart that will welcome the immigrant (those who are passing through and those who wander) into your family, because I was once the new-kid in a small-town. [Malachi 3:5]
Help me fit in with my family, eat and drink wisely, find a healthy weight, and become a better runner.
Benediction Now listen and remember this: wherever you are led by the Spirit, whatever may happen during the storm of your life, in everything you do, and whoever you become; you are God’s child and you are in God’s hands. Go in peace. Serve YHWH.
