Prayers of Invocation on Thoughts
Almighty God, the source of every good prayer, who pours out on all who desire it the spirit of grace and supplication; deliver us, when we draw near to you, from coldness of heart and wanderings of mind, that with steadfast thoughts and renewed faith we may worship you in spirit and in truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, for whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid, cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Most Holy and Most Gracious God, who turns the shadow of night into morning, satisfy us early with your mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad throughout the entire day. Lift the light of your faith on us; calm every troubled thought; and guide our feet into the way of peace. Perfect your strength in our weakness, and help us to worship you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
