Daily Morning Prayer for Saturday, March 19

Saturday Morning Prayer for Lent
from Daily Prayer for All Seasons


Know the grace of God
and live joyfully this day of salvation.


God of heaven and earth, your wisdom stretches
around the world, ordering all things for good:
Free us from anxiety and understand us like a friend,
that we might share the good news of your friendship
with all people; through the Word made flesh,
Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.


Come, heavenly comforter and spirit of truth,
Blowing everywhere and filling all things.
Treasury of blessings and giver of life:
Come and abide in us;
cleanse us from every impurity,
and, in your great goodness, save us.


Ephesians 3:14-21

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.


We can all please God. We must only choose well. Many go abroad to study,
pursuing knowledge far from home, but the kingdom of God is always here and now,wherever you are, within you. Precisely because the kingdom is within, and God is our friend, our salvation only requires that we be willing. –Athanasius of Alexandria

In what ways are we willing to accept the wisdom of God’s guidance today?


Christ in my mind
that I may see what is true;
Christ in my mouth
that I may speak with power;
Christ in my heart
that I may learn to be loved;
Christ in my hands
that I may work with tenderness;
Christ in my soul
that I may know my desire;
Christ in my arms
that I may reach without fear;
Christ in my face
that I may shine with God.


We pray for those in formation with the St. Phoebe School; for those seeking and discerning; and for all deacons in their lives, work, and ministries bridging the Church and the world.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven, 
     hallowed be your Name, 
     your kingdom come, 
     your will be done, 
         on earth as in heaven. 
Give us today our daily bread. 
Forgive us our sins 
     as we forgive those 
         who sin against us. 
Save us from the time of trial, 
     and deliver us from evil. 
For the kingdom, the power, 
     and the glory are yours, 
     now and for ever. Amen.


Wisdom is brilliant; she never fades.
By those who love her, she is easily seen;
by those who seek her, she is readily found.
She is a breath of God’s power,
an image of God’s goodness,
the eternal light and mirror of God’s glory.
Now let Wisdom do all things, renew all things,
and pass into holy souls everywhere
to make them friends of God.

Going Out

Know the grace of God
and live joyfully this day of salvation.
