St Johns Camberwell

Morning Prayer

The night has passed and the day lies open before us;

Let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence may be kept

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day, 

so may the light of your presence, O God, 

set our hearts on fire with love for you; 

now and for ever. Amen.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world

as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that God will make all things right

if I surrender to God’s Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with God

Forever in the next. Amen.
