Unity | Morning Prayer for Trinity Sunday
/

This is Trinity Sunday. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit!

As always, our Scripture readings and general order come from the Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily Office. We’ll sing “Behold” by Joel Houston throughout today’s time of prayer. We’ll read Psalm 29 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Lesson is Romans 8:12-17. We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. We’ll then have a time of prompted prayer.

Behold (Then Sings My Soul)

Verse 1

Behold the Father’s heart

The mystery He lavishes on us

As deep cries out to deep

Oh how desp’rately He wants us

The things of earth stand next to Him

Like a candle to the sun

Unfailing Father

What compares to His great love

Verse 2

Behold His holy Son

The Lion and the Lamb given to us

The Word became a man

That my soul should know its Saviour

Forsaken for the sake of all mankind

Salvation in His blood

Jesus Messiah

The righteous died for love

It wasn’t over

For He is the risen One

Chorus

Then sings my soul

Then sings my soul

How great Your love is

How great Your love is

Then sings my soul

Verse 3

Behold I have a friend

The Spirit breathing holy fire within

My ever present help

Speaking truth when I can’t find it

Light up this broken heart and light my way

‘Til my time on earth is done

Oh Holy Spirit

Breathe in me like kingdom come

Oh Holy Spirit

Let Your work in me be done

Chorus

Ending

Then sings my soul my God

He who was and is to come

Prepare the way

Until the work on earth is done

Watch as the clouds He rides swing low

Lift up the sound

As He makes our praise His throne

Behold the Lord our God will lead us home

Prayer of Confession

Most merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you

in thought, word, and deed,

by what we have done,

and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart;

we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us and forgive us;

that we may delight in your will,

and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Psalm 29

1 Ascribe to the Lord, you gods, * 

  ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 

2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his Name; * 

  worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. 

3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; 

  the God of glory thunders; * 

  the Lord is upon the mighty waters. 

4 The voice of the Lord is a powerful voice; * 

  the voice of the Lord is a voice of splendor. 

5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar trees; * 

  the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon; 

6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, * 

  and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox. 

7 The voice of the Lord splits the flames of fire; 

  the voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; * 

  the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. 

8 The voice of the Lord makes the oak trees writhe * 

  and strips the forests bare. 

9 And in the temple of the Lord* 

  all are crying, “Glory!” 

10 The Lord sits enthroned above the flood; * 

  the Lord sits enthroned as King for evermore. 

11 The Lord shall give strength to his people; * 

  the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace. 

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Romans 8:12-17 (NRSV)

So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—for if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy Name,

thy kingdom come,

thy 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 thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

Collect of the Day

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever. Amen. -Ephesians 3:20, 21

  1. Thank you for this ministry. As a pastor I often find it difficult to rest in worship. This creates space for that.

    1. I appreciate you sharing that so much…that’s one of the reasons I do it. Bless you and may you be filled and find that rest more!
