A Prayer to Begin the Day

Most loving Father, who willest us to give thanks for all things, to dread nothing but the loss of thee, and to cast all our care on thee who carest for us: Preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, and grant that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that love which is immortal, and which thou hast manifested unto us in thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Last spring, our home group used this prayer as the template for a several week discussion of the love of God, our need for complete trust in him, his all-sufficiency, and its summing up in the person and work of Jesus. Wonderful prayer which we committed to memory. It’s found in the 1928 BCP which our parish uses.
