Morning prayer liturgy adapted from “God Our Mother: An Inclusive Morning Prayer Liturgy” by Christena Cleveland.
O God, let our mouth proclaim your praise.
And your glory all the day long.
Praise to the holy and undivided Trinity, one God: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
The Holy One is in our midst.
O come let us worship.
Venite (Psalm 95:1-7, The Inclusive Bible translation)
Come, let us sing joyfully to God!
Raise a shout to our rock, our deliverance!
Let us come into God’s presence with thanksgiving,
and sing our praises with joy.
For YHWH is a great God,
The great Ruler, above all gods.
O God, in your hands are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks are yours.
Yours is the sea, for you made it,
The dry land as well, for your hands formed it.
Come, let us bow down in worship;
let us kneel before YHWH, our Maker.
For you are our God,
And we are the people you shepherd,
the flock under your care.
Jeremiah 31:1-6; John 6:35-40
PEOPLE OFFER THEIR OWN PRAYERS, SILENTLY OR ALOUD.
~Conclude spoken prayer with: God, in your mercy,
~We will respond: Hear our prayer.
Holy and everliving God,
by your power we are created
and by your love we are redeemed;
guide and strengthen us by your Spirit,
that we may give ourselves to your service
and live this day in love to one another and to you; through Jesus Christ our Savior.
