Faith Stories – Nathan Gay (Wednesday Morning Matins for April 22, 2020)

As we take time to observe social distancing, we at Woodlake Lutheran invite you into a time of Morning Prayer.

The following practice may be done individually, or with one or two in your household leading the whole family in a time of prayer. Begin with centering yourself in a quiet space. Take three slow breaths. After this, speak these words: Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, O God, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Praise to the blest and holy Trinity, one God, who gives us life, salvation, and resurrection.

Psalmody

Reading

Matthew 14:13-21

Pray

O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Bless

Almighty God bless us, and direct our days and our deeds in peace. Amen.
