Wednesday Prayers

Morning

Opening Sentence

Psalm 43:3

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling!

O Lord, open our lips;
     And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Psalm 119

81 My soul has longed for your salvation; * I have put my hope in your word.

82 My eyes have failed from watching for your promise, * and I say, “When will you comfort me?”

83 I have become like a leather flask in the smoke, * but I have not forgotten your statutes.

84 How much longer must I wait? * when will you give judgment against those who persecute me?

85 The proud have dug pits for me; * they do not keep your law.

86 All your commandments are true; * help me, for they persecute me with lies.

87 They had almost made an end of me on earth, * but I have not forsaken your commandments.

88 In your loving‑kindness, revive me, * that I may keep the decrees of your mouth.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
     as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Benedictus

Luke 1:68-79

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; he has come to his people and set them free. He has raised up for us a mighty savior, born of the house of his servant David. Through his holy prophets he promised of old, that he would save us from our enemies, from the hands of all who hate us. He promised to show mercy to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant. This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, to set us free from the hands of our enemies, Free to worship him without fear, holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life. You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way, To give his people knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of their sins. In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Collect

O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, you have brought us safely to the beginning of this day: Defend us by your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin nor run into any danger; and that guided by your Spirit, we may do what is righteous in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Personal Prayer

Here you may include your petitions, supplications, intercessions, and thanksgivings (1 Timothy 2:1). Pray for the world, the nation, the local community, the church, your neighbors, those who suffer, and those in any trouble.

Grace

Ephesians 3:20-21

Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus forever and ever. Amen.

Praise the Lord, all you nations; laud him, all you peoples. For his loving‑kindness toward us is great, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Hallelujah!

Psalm 119

89 O Lord, your word is everlasting; * it stands firm in the heavens.

90 Your faithfulness remains from one generation to another; * you established the earth, and it abides.

91 By your decree these continue to this day, * for all things are your servants.

92 If my delight had not been in your law, * I should have perished in my affliction.

93 I will never forget your commandments, * because by them you give me life.

94 I am yours; oh, that you would save me! * for I study your commandments.

95 Though the wicked lie in wait for me to destroy me, * I will apply my mind to your decrees.

96 I see that all things come to an end, * but your commandment has no bounds.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
     as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

A Song to the Lamb

Revelation 4:11; 5:9-10, 13

Splendor and honor and kingly power are yours by right, O Lord our God, For you created everything that is, and by your will they were created and have their being; And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain, for with your blood you have redeemed for God, From every family, language, people and nation, a kingdom of priests to serve our God. And so, to him who sits upon the throne, and to Christ the Lamb, Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, for ever and for evermore.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Magnificat

Luke 1:46-55

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. For behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed. For he that is mighty has magnified me, and holy is his Name. And his mercy is on those who fear him, throughout all generations. He has shown the strength of his arm; he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has brought down the mighty from their thrones, and has exalted the humble and meek. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. He, remembering his mercy, has helped his servant Israel, as he promised to our fathers, Abraham and his seed forever.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Collect

O God, the life of all who live, the light of the faithful, the strength of those who labor, and the repose of the dead: We thank you for the blessings of the day that is past, and humbly ask for your protection through the coming night. Bring us in safety to the morning hours; through him who died and rose again for us, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Personal Prayer

Here you may include your petitions, supplications, intercessions, and thanksgivings (1 Timothy 2:1). Pray for the world, the nation, the local community, the church, your neighbors, those who suffer, and those in any trouble.

Our help is in the Name of the Lord;
     The maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 119
