This is a reformed set of prayers. It is based on the 1906 Book of common worship from the then New York Presbyterian Church. It may be of use, for those, who, as I do, at times don’t have the words available.

As an aside, when you have suchy a difficulty, I find that writing your prayer in a notebook helps. Writing makes you reflect.

The Church of Ireland has the most useful daily office for those who are more more the Anglican Persuasion.

The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him; He also will hear their cry, and will save them.

ALMIGHTY God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid ; Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily magnify Thy holy Name ; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

MOST holy and merciful Father ; We acknowledge and confess in Thy Presence : Our sinful nature prone to evil and slothful in good ; And all our shortcomings and offenses against Thee. Thou alone knowest how often we have sinned: In wandering from Thy ways; In wasting Thy gifts; In forgetting Thy love. But Thou, O Lord, have pity upon us ; Who are ashamed and sorry for all wherein we have displeased Thee.

Teach us to hate our errors ; Cleanse us from our secret faults ; And forgive our sins ; For the sake of Thy dear Son our Saviour. And O most holy and loving Father : Send Thy purifying grace into our hearts, we beseech Thee ; That we may henceforth live in Thy light and walk in Thy ways ; According to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

OUR Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts. As we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil : For Thine
is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Psalm 100 [1]

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth :

And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord ; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary ; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead ; He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the riglit hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost ; The Holy Catholic Church ; The Communion of Saints ; The Forgiveness of sins ; The Resurrection of the body ; and the Life everlasting. Amen.

GOD, by whose hand all living things were made, and by whose blessing they are nourished and sustained ; We give Thee hearty thanks for all the bounties of Thy providence, wherewith Thou hast enriched our life; and we humbly pray that, enjoying Thy gifts in contentment, we may be enabled by Thy grace to use them to Thy praise.

Especially we thank Thee for Thy great love in sending Thy Son to be the Saviour of the world and in calling us out of our sins into fellowship with Him : and we beseech Thee to grant us always Thy Holy Spirit, through whom we may grow continually in thankfulness toward Thee, as also into the likeness of Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

GOD, most holy, wise, and powerful Preserver and Governor of all Thy creatures and all their actions ; Keep us this day in health of body and soundness of mind, in purity of heart and cheerfulness of spirit, in contentment with our lot and charity with our neighbour; and further all our lawful undertakings with Thy blessing. In our labour strengthen us : in our pleasure purify us : in our difficulties direct us : in our perils defend us : in our troubles comfort us: and supply all our needs, according to the riches of Thy grace in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto Thee ; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered together in Thy Name Thou wilt grant their requests : Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of Thy servants, as may be most expedient for them ; granting us in this world knowledge of Thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.

NOW unto Him that is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy ; to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

1. At this point, I would suggest you look at a Psalm, a Passage of the Gospel, and of the Old Testament and Letters. I use a lectionary. But for the purposes of daily prayer, I’m putting Psalm inline
