Below are some familiar prayers that Christians have found helpful and inspirational down the centuries which you may want to use :
O God, from whom to be turned is to fall, to whom to be turned is to rise,
and in whom to stand is to abide forever; grant us in all our duties , thy help,
in all our perplexities thy guidance, in all our dangers thy protection,
and in all our sorrows thy peace; through Jesus Christ out Lord. Amen
St Augustine of Hippo
Thanks be to thee, our Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits which thou hast given us,
for all the pains and insults which thou hast borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we see thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly
day by day.
St Richard of Chichester
Lord, I shall be verie busie this day. I may forget thee, but do not thou forget me. Amen.
Sir Jacob Astley’s Prayer befor the battle of Edgehill
Grant us, O Lord
