Psalm 51:1-6 NIV

Have mercy on me, O God,
  according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
  blot out my transgressions.

Wash away all my iniquity
  and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
  and my sin is always before me.

Against you, you only, have I sinned
  and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
  and justified when you judge.
Surely I was sinful at birth,
  sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Surely you desire truth in the inner parts;
  you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God,
send your Holy Spirit into our hearts,
to direct and rule us according to your will,
to comfort us in all our afflictions,
to defend us from all error,
and to lead us into all truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


John 17:1-5 NIV

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
  “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
