It is recommended that you read the prayers and readings aloud.
Before starting, consider taking a few moments of silence to prepare yourself for worship; and to dedicate this time to God. You could use this time to review the past day or week; thanking God for the blessings in your life; asking God for forgiveness for what you got wrong; and asking for God’s help with things or situations that are causing you to worry. If there is anything in particular on your heart or mind, take a moment to pray about it now.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, Forever and ever. Amen.

Old Testament Reading of the Day
New Testament Reading of the Day
Father, thank you for all the blessings you have given us.
Thank you for your love that you have revealed to me,
And for the love that we share together.
We pray for all the kind words that you have sown into our hearts this day.
May they take root and produce wonderful things,
Things of beauty and blessings to all.
And as I close my worship, thank you that you walk with me.
May I be alert to your promptings
And live in Your endless love.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and glory.
Now, Lord, let your servant be in peace according to your word.
For my eyes have seen your salvation.
Which You have prepared in the sight of all people;
To be a light to lighten all Nations and to be the glory of your people Israel.
