How I Pray for Chapel Hill

How I Pray for Chapel Hill by Rev. Jeff GannonI “borrow” from the Eastern Orthodox tradition as I begin my morning prayers.

Morning Prayers

 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Glory to you, O Lord, glory to you.

O heavenly king, O comforter, O Spirit of truth, who is in all places and fill all things, the treasury of good things, and the giver of life. Come and abide in me, cleanse me from all my sin, and save my soul, O Holy One.

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on me. (3X)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

O Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on me, O Lord, cleanse me from all my sin; Master, pardon my transgressions. O Holy One, visit and heal my infirmities, for your Name’s sake.

Lord, have mercy (12X)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by your name, your kingdom come, your 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 yours is the Kingdom, the Power, and the glory, of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
