Thought for Meditation:

“We do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.” ~ Richard Rohr.

Household Prayer: Morning

Merciful God, as I begin this day, place in me a spirit of generosity so that I may freely share love, joy, and encouragement with those I encounter.  Keep me from quick judgements so that I leave room for your grace in my life and in the lives of others. Make me your faithful disciple in my words and in my actions, as well as in the thoughts of my heart, in Jesus’ name. Amen

Household Prayer: Evening

All through the day, Lord Jesus, you have been present.  As I settle into the routines of home and evening, I long to be at home in my relationship with you. Help me to put aside the cares of the day and the worries of tomorrow in order to fully enjoy the peace of your presence now. I pray that your peace will also be with those I know who have special need of your care tonight, and I pray for those who lie down this night without the safety of home or bed, without enough food or resources.  Bring your light into the surrounding darkness so that all of us may sleep in the security of your love. Amen.
