Morning Prayer

We meet in the name of the living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

O Lord, open our lips
All and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Blessed are you, Sovereign God, creator of all,
to you be glory and praise for ever.
You founded the earth in the beginning
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
In the fullness of time you made us in your image,
and in these last days you have spoken to us
in your Son Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.
As we rejoice in the gift of your presence among us
let the light of your love always shine in our hearts,
your Spirit ever renew our lives
and your praises ever be on our lips.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

All Blessed be God for ever.

Canticle

1The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, 
slow to anger and of great kindness.

2He will not always accuse us, 
neither will he keep his anger for ever.

3He has not dealt with us according to our sins, 
nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.

4For as the heavens are high above the earth, 
so great is his mercy upon those who fear him.

5As far as the east is from the west, 
so far has he set our sins from us.

6As a father has compassion on his children, 
so is the Lord merciful towards those who fear him.

7For he knows of what we are made; 
he remembers that we are but dust.

8Our days are but as grass; 
we flourish as a flower of the field;

9For as soon as the wind goes over it, it is gone, 
and its place shall know it no more.

10But the merciful goodness of the Lord is from of old
and endures for ever on those who fear him, 

and his righteousness on children’s children;

11On those who keep his covenant 
and remember his commandments to do them.

All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

This opening prayer is said

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence is kept.

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever.
All Amen.

The Word of God

PSALM of the Day – see readings attached to Notice sheet

All Glory to the Father and to the Son

Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
and be not wise in your own sight.
AllTrust in the Lord with all your heart;
and be not wise in your own sight.
In all your ways acknowledge him
and he will make straight your paths.
AllTrust in the Lord with all your heart.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
AllTrust in the Lord with all your heart;
and be not wise in your own sight.

The Benedictus (The Song of Zechariah)

All You have set us free to worship you without fear,
holy and righteous in your sight.

1 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, 
who has come to his people and set them free.

2 He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour, 
born of the house of his servant David.

3 Through his holy prophets God promised of old 
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all that hate us,

4 To show mercy to our ancestors, 
and to remember his holy covenant.

5 This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham: 
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

6 Free to worship him without fear, 
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.

7 And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, 
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

8 To give his people knowledge of salvation 
by the forgiveness of all their sins.

9 In the tender compassion of our God 
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

10 To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, 
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

All Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Refrain:

All You have set us free to worship you without fear,
holy and righteous in your sight.

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,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.
