This page features three prayers for Saturdays. The first prayer is suitable for using at Easter time on Holy Saturday. It considers how we can discover God's hope in a dark or uncertain place. The next short prayer can be used for waking on Saturday mornings. Finally there is a night prayer for reflecting on the blessings of the day just gone.
Holy Saturday morning prayer
On this day, the world was waiting, like a long winter hoping for spring, like a dry land awaiting rain.
Still, quiet, in between a world hesitating, silent hope in a dark place.
Lord, we give to you the times we have in own lives, where all we can do is wait, when all we hold is hope. We give you those times when all we have is faith in new life, new beginnings and heavens call.
Be with all those who today wait in that cold, uncertain place. Hold them, keep them safe in your arms, resting in your promise of new life.
a short meditation suitable for watching on waking, with beautiful photography of a morning sunrise:-
"I count the blessings today,
The treasure of Saturday freedom."
