Pray As You Go -- A fantastic resource intended for people on the go, but equally great for people at home.

A Prayer for an end to violence and hatred

Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence
in so many parts of the world.
It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.
Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace —
peace that passes our understanding
but changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayers for Guidance

Send forth your wisdom, O Lord, to live in our hearts,
to work in our lives and to speak in our consciences;
that all our thoughts, words and actions
may conform to your will and reveal your glory;
through Christ our Lord.
Aelred of Rievaulx (1109-1167)

Gracious God,
we praise you for your limitless love,
for the way that Jesus taught his disciples how to pray,
and for your Holy Spirit that inspires our prayers today.
Help us to be open to each sign of your grace.
Help us to be ready to spend time in your presence.
Guide and enrich our praying
as we journey ever more closely to you.

Michaela Youngson

Lord, guide me in all the decisions I will face today,
large and small.
Help me to weigh the effects they will have on others;
grant me courage in those which are difficult
and I would rather avoid.
Give me time to think before I act.
In all that I say or think or do this day,
inspire me with your love and lead me into your truth.
