Prayers for this Lord’s Day

Prayer for a New Heart

     Thou who art over us,
     Thou who art one of us,
     Thou who art:
          Give me a pure heart, that I may see thee;
               a humble heart, that I may hear thee;
               a heart of love, that I may serve thee;
               a heart of faith, that I may abide in thee. Amen.

from The United Methodist Hymnal

Blessed Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience, and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Taken from The Book of Worship for Church and Home of The Methodist Church (1965)
