O Thou whose glory fills the heavens,
Whose bounty clothes the earth,
To Thee a poem of thanks we raise
For blessings from our birth.
For that untiring love Thou dost,
From day to day renew,
O may it on our hearts descend
Like heaven-distilled dew.
For mercy great, unending still,
Which gave up to the grave
Thine only Son, the Sinless One,
Our sinful souls to save.
While entering on another year
Our cares on Thee we cast,
Beseeching aid in days to come
Which cheered us through the past.
That still the freedom may be ours
To kneel down in Thy sight,
And worship Thee at shut of day,
And in the morning light.
That from temptation’s fatal paths
Thou turn our steps away;
And keep us from unholy thoughts
That lead the mind astray.
No more may lust of worldly wealth
Command thoughts that are thine;
Nor may we envy other’s lot,
Or at our own repine.
Than all the riches earth can boast
Or gems beneath the sea,
We know the pious, humble heart,
More precious is to Thee.
How needful, then, to train our thoughts,
And fan the heavenly flame
Of faith, in the believing heart,
Triumphing o’er sin and shame
And holding by the Word, thou hast
For grace and guidance given,
Pass trough this world in holy fear,
True candidates for heaven.

Dear God of Compassion,

There is such a hole in our hearts.  Today should be a day of joy, but we feel emptiness and loss.

While the world celebrates around , I remember Christmas celebrations of the past and people long to have we loved We bring our sorrows to You, Lord, like some odd gift of the magi and dump them at Your feet. In our blind tears we wonder if anyone can possibly understand the depth of our sadness.

 

We know, You can. You sent Your son to be with us in our deepest sorrows and we know that even though we might not feel it now, You are here with us, grieving with us, caring for us in our sadness.

Dearest Lord, help us to turn to the one we miss so much today and speak. Help us heal the loss of our parting and help us not to regret the things we didn’t say. Sorrow tears at our hearts, but today we ask that our  loss soften our hearts and make us more compassionate with everyone we meet, so that our loss may become a gift to others.

Amen.

Dear God,

We pray for all the victims of the Typhoon Sendong, tragedy that struck the southern island of

Mindanao, Philippines

We pray for the safety, recovery, and grief of our Filipino brothers and  sisters today

who have suffered great losses in the typhoon floods.

Help those who have lost family to find them alive and well.

May they immediately receive the physical help, food, water, clothing, and medicine they need.

Send the right spiritual help to minister to those grieving, traumatized,

and lost who need to know You.

In your powerful name Jesus , we pray,

Amen.

O God, early in the morning I cry to you.

Help me to pray

And to concentrate my thoughts on you

I cannot do this alone.

In me there is darkness,

But with you there is light

I am lonely, but you do not leave me

I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help

I am restless, but with you there is peace.

In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience

I do not understand your ways,

But you know the way for me…

Restore me to liberty,

And enable me to live now

That I may answer before you and before me.

Lord, whatever this day may bring,

Your name be praised.

 

Amen

Thank You for all that I have

all that I am, and all that

I may one day become.

 

I know this is possible because

of the opportunities You gave me,

the teachers You sent my way.

 

Please help me give back to the world,

by being the glowing example

that You mean for me to be

each and every day.

 

In my actions, my words, and my love

may others see You shining through me.

 

Amen

God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

enjoying one moment at a time

accepting hardships as the pathway to peace

taking, as He did, this sinful world

as it is, not as I would have it

trusting that He will make all things right

if I surrender to His Will

that I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with Him

forever in the next.

Amen.
