|The corner of the altar in the chapel at Holy Communion reflects the evening light as we would gather for prayer.|
As we lie in our beds in the dawning light, we know, O Lord, that prayer changes things, especially our own hearts.
As we feel your hand of blessing in so many corners of our lives, we know, O Lord, that You are our portion and our cup.
As we think of the times we have failed to live as we ought, we know, O Lord, that our prayers of penitence call us to renewal.
As our hearts are hurting and we are beset by storms within and without, we know, O Lord, that You are with us.
As we pray for friends and loved ones who are sick, sorrowing, or in trouble, we know, O Lord, that you in your mercy remember them and keep them.
Send now, O Lord, your blessing upon us who turn to You, and comfort those whom we now name.
This morning's prayer inspired by this song.
