Prayer is communicating with God. All you have to do is ask God for His help. Psalm 107:28-30 reminds us, "Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven." There is power in prayer!
Prayer for Discernment
God of grace and glory,
You are the giver of all good and perfect gifts.
As we seek to know and do your will,
open our ears to Listen, our eyes to See,
our hearts to Love, our minds to Learn,
our lips to Speak, our hands to Serve.
You have walked with us in the wilderness, sheltered us in the storms,
and fed us in our hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Guide us on this journey of discernment, that your will would be made clear
to us, that your grace would abound, that your glory would be revealed;
in your holy name we pray.
The Ten Commandments
I am the Lord your God, you shall have no other gods.
You shall not make any graven images to worship.
You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
Honor your father and your mother so that your days may be long.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not tell lies about other people.
You shall not covet anything that belongs to another person.
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,
forever and ever.
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day He rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
The Prayer for Serenity
O God, grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference;
living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.
