Prayer of the Day

Praying daily is one of the commitments of A Methodist Way of Life.  We hope the prayers below are helpful in your prayer life. They are kindly submitted by Methodist volunteers from across the globe, who offered them for ‘A Place for All’, the 2021/2022 Methodist Prayer Handbook.

Glorify the Lord, all you works of the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Glorify the Lord, O nights and days,
O shining light and enfolding dark.
Storm clouds and thunderbolts, glorify the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Glorify the Lord, O mountains and hills,
and all that grows upon the earth,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Glorify the Lord, O springs of water, seas, and streams,
O whales and all that move in the waters,
All birds of the air, glorify the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Glorify the Lord, O beasts of the wild,
and all you flocks and herds,
O men and women everywhere, glorify the Lord
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

Taken from the Book of Common Prayer, 1979, Episcopal Church, USA

God of all glory, when the roar of the traffic recedes
and even our hymns are stilled in our mouths,
then we hear strains of an anthem sung since
you called all things into being;
how birds burst their breasts with gratitude at being alive;
how waves on the shore lap a lullaby at your manger
and spring lambs bleat delight at the empty tomb;
how the wind in the tall pines whispers psalms to the Spirit.
As we begin to sing again, help us not to crave the melody
but to find our place in the harmony of all creation.
Amen.

Rachel Parkinson, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District Chair
