Begin by praying the Collect for Grace and Collect for Purity.
Collect for Grace:
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us safely to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Collect for Purity:
Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we might perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Read: Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16; Ecclesiastes 3:1-8; and John 12:27-36
Walk in the light. Don’t let the darkness overtake you, but walk in the light.
Ask God to give you light as you walk through this wilderness journey. Ask him to show you where to go. Ask him to help you through the difficulties. Ask him to help you see the things in your life that he wants to remove. Ask him to help you accept the things he wants to give you. Write your own prayer.
