為小孩子祈禱詞 1.1

上主,我們為眼前的這群小孩子懇求你,懇求你保護他們,開導他們,培養他們做心地善良的人。到他們眼神老練、說話圓滑、手段高明的時候,心地始終善良而正直。上主,人始終是人,總不免做幾椿傻事錯事,吃不該吃的果子,愛不值得愛的東西;但願他們心中尚有權衡,不肯顛倒是非、抹殺好壞來自欺欺人。因基督之名,求主俯聽我們的祈禱。阿們。

誠心敬慕禱文

父啊,我們登你的堂階,瞻仰你慈悲的恩光,要獻上我們的讚頌。我們要放下殘缺零碎的思考,分裂截斷的解析,來到聖壇前,用敬慕的誠心,將自己奉獻於你。

在你慈愛的心懷裡我們飛鳴,像天空裡嚘嚶的小鳥;游泳,像江河瀺灂的游魚。在於你,我們斷片的生活變成整個的生活,糾紛的心志變成了統一的心志。在於你,我們的憂疑做了快樂的信仰,我們的勞苦做了踴躍的精神,我們的懦弱恐怖痛苦災難,做了我們榮耀天父的機會。在於你,光明吞滅了幽闇,奧妙消化了衝突,有罪的人得了救贖,勞苦負重的人得了安息。在於你,要從你愛海深處,受真理的洗禮。亞孟。

(趙紫宸撰,載於《團契聖歌集》)

為畢業諸生禱詞

聖善的上帝啊,我們將至誠懇切的心願,呈到你的壇前,為本屆畢業的同學,獻上我們的祈禱。我們不為他們求富貴榮華,權位勢力;我們只懇求你引導這班將要為社會國家擔當重大責任的青年男女,使他們有氣節,有風骨,有志向,有勇敢,能將所得的學問,作開闢道路的工具,能以所受的訓練,作創造生命的權能。我們深願他們能夠永遠篤行好學,慎思明辨,永遠能有富貴不能淫,貧賤不能移,威武不能屈的真人格。我們深願他們都得主耶穌人格的份量。因基督之名,求主俯聽我們的祈禱。阿們。

Lord, give me a few friends

Dear Lord, please give me
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
And the patience to wait for the coming of these things,
with the wisdom to recognize them when they come. Amen.

(A Prayer for the New Year, adapted from Walter Reid Hunt's A Morning Wish)

Prayer on the Earth

O God, we thank you for the Earth
Wide enough to keep us looking,
Open enough to keep us moving,
Dry enough to keep us honest,
Prickly enough to make us tough,
Green enough to go on living,
Old enough to give us dreams,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

(adapted from Gary Snyder, Earth Verse)

 

夕航祈禱詞

(藍調漸深的大海上, 有那麼一塊甲板, 暖暖的; 黃昏了, 還釋放著下午的陽光, 不斷地打開, 打開, 再打開, 如同一片永久航行的陸地. 我停下, 伸開雙手, 以鐮狀的白帆, 收割金黃的稻粒和紫紅的葡萄.)

上主,天空滾燙流動如滔滔的大水,我知道自己仍在前進,且必進入星群臨照的港灣。在那裡,我要攤開懷中的海圖,倚燈細讀:哪些是你帶血的字諭,哪些是我執迷的塗改。然後讓你親手縫合,我航道上最深最深的水痕。阿們。

O Gracious Light

O Gracious Light,
pure brightness of the everlasting Father in heav'n.
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light, we sing praises, O God:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Thou are worthy at all times
to be praised by happy voices, O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

(Text: Phos Hilaron, Greek, 3rd cent: tr. from Book of Common Prayer)

Lord, who left the highest heaven

Lord, who left the highest heaven
for a homeless human birth
and, a child within a stable,
came to share the life of earth--
with your grace and mercy bless
all who suffer homelessness.

Lord, who sought by cloak of darkness
refuge under foreign skies
from the swords of Herod's soldiers,
ravaged homes, and parents' cries--
may your grace and mercy rest
on the homeless and oppressed.

Lord, who in your cross and passion
hung beneath a darkened sky,
yet whose thoughts were for your mother,
and a thief condemned to die--
may your grace and mercy rest
on the helpless and distressed.

(By Timothy Dudley-Smith)

Unser Vater im Himmel

Unser Vater im Himmel!
Dein Name werde geheiligt.
Dein Reich komme.
Dein Wille geschehe wie im Himmel so auf Erden.
Unser tägliches Brot gib uns heute.
Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
wie auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern.
Und führe uns nicht in Versuchung,
sondern erlöse uns von dem Bösen.
Denn dein ist das Reich und die Kraft
und die Herrlichkeit in Ewigkeit.
Amen.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.

The disturbing comforter

O God, who comes as the disturbing comforter,
shattering the rigid preconceptions of our minds and hearts,
give us the grace to welcome your coming,
to trust beyond where we can see,
to have hope in the midst of chaos,
to learn from our mistakes,
to accept your forgiveness,
and to walk steadfastly the way of Gospel gladness.

我知道這世界不是絕對的好
我也知道它有離別 有衰老
然而我只有一次的機會
上主啊 請俯聽我的祈禱

請給我一個長長的夏季
給我一段無瑕的回憶
給我一顆溫柔的心
給我一份潔白的戀情

我只能來這世上一次 所以
請再給我一個美麗的名字
好讓他能在夜裡低喚我
在奔馳的歲月裡
永遠記得我們曾經相愛的事

Jeremiah's Prayer

Although our sins testify against us,
O Lord, do something for the sake of your name.
For our backsliding is great;
we have sinned against you.
O Hope of Israel,
its Savior in times of distress,
why are you like a stranger in the land
like a traveler who stays only a night?
Why are you like a man taken by surprise,
like a warrior powerless to save?
You are among us, O Lord,
and we bear your name;
do not forsake us!

(Jeremiah 14: 7-9)

Confession in evening prayer

(Priest) Jesus says, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.' So let us turn away from our sin and turn to Christ, confessing our sins in penitence and faith.

(All) Most merciful God,
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
we confess that we have sinned
in thought, word and deed.
We have not loved you with our whole heart.
We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.
In your mercy
forgive what we have been,
help us to amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be;
that we may do justly,
love mercy,
and walk humbly with you, our God.
Amen.

晚禱

若我今日傷害他人心靈,若我今日使別人走錯路,若我今日照己心意偏行,求主赦免。

若我今日言語不合體統,若我今日不關懷人需要,因此使別人受傷害虧損,求主赦免。

若我今日對人冷落頑梗,若我今日只顧貪圖安逸,不願堅守神所交付職分,求主赦免。

求你赦免我所承認眾罪,求你赦免隱而未顯罪愆,求你常常引導愛護保守。阿門。

--

If I have wounded any soul today
If I have caused one foot to go astray
If I have walked in my own willful way
Dear Lord, forgive.

If I have uttered idle words or vain
If I have turned aside from want or pain
Lest I myself shall suffer thro' the strain
Dear Lord, forgive.

If I have been perverse or hard or cold
If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold
When Thou hast given me some fort to hold
Dear Lord, forgive.

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee
Forgive the secret sins I do not see
O guide me, love me, and my keeper be
Dear Lord, Amen.

Prayer for Thursday's events

In the face of terrorism

...

As we hold before God those who suffer, we give thanks for every sign of the resilience of the human spirit and the determination not to be cowed by the cowards. We pray that all people may learn to live in peace and with mutual respect. May we not cease in our striving for justice and for an end to poverty, preventable disease and the destruction of the environment. May our eyes be fixed on Jesus, who bears and takes away the sin of the world, and in whom nothing can separate us from the love of God.

Amen.

趙紫宸冬暮感痛禱文

天道不言,萬籟無聲,上帝的尊威榮耀昭然畢露。上帝啊,我們除卻頂禮讚歎,五體投地,更沒有言語能夠表彰你的光華。

我們來,要在你靜默涵濡的恩愛中,得幽深豐潤的養息。我們來,像荒山裡的渴鹿,尋覓清溪;像飛倦的小鳥,希望斂翼於長林。我們紮緊了身體與愚魯貧窮,虛矯殘殺,以及一切阻礙生命的罪惡奮鬥,每每到山窮水盡。我們的正誼,擋不住虛偽矯飾的私心;我們的信仰,經不起狂妄荒謬的臆斷;我們的人格,敵不過聲色犬馬的引誘;我們的犧牲,算來只是愚蠢可憐的舉動。我們勉強宣道,有甚麼意義呢?我們做精衛填海,愚公移山的笨事;上帝啊,於你天國,有甚麼補助呢?

漸近炧滅的希望之燈,上帝啊,我們在這驟風飄雨裡,提來放在你面前。你終是涵容,你終是愛護。我們認識你是愛的本源,人們的歸宿。我們認識你,卻又疑惑你;戀慕你,卻又離開你;深知你有巍峙永生之道,而卻不能撥開迷離的雲霧。廣大無量的上帝啊,你所生養所維護的衛道者,如今因苦鬥而疲乏了。槁木死灰,如今要求你培壅煦覆,賜給忻忻向榮的生意。我們在這昏暮的勞倦時,不能不將自己的身心一切,棄擲在你慈愛廣大的懷裡。上帝啊,奮興我們。

西山日落,暮煙凝紫,玉殿瓊宇,襯托在斑爛的天幕。上帝啊,你的化工,何等奇偉宏麗。但是人類所到,豈必要留下蕪穢醜惡的蹤跡?玉泉的暗水潺潺地流到星月之下,有蕭疏的蘆葦橫截了流蕩的星月。天地是何等澄澈啊! 我們做人,上帝啊,難道便不合有冰雪似的肝膽麼?懇求你讓我們在你純潔的生命之流裡洗濯我們的心臟。松間的朗月,將幽夜的寂靜,披散在山岡之上。我們也要將我們的心念,披散在你的慈懷裡,我們所歸向的上帝啊! 懇求你將那打擊蹴損的憂心,一處一處修好,再將希望與確信灌溉在心中。

現在我們休息了。隱隱的悲痛,雖不免被帶到夢中去,但是上帝啊,在夢裡你要衛護,使醒時所見的凶殺殘害,毒蛇猛獸的惡象,不再來侵擾憂傷鬱結的靈魂。我們不求別的,只求你在我們懵懵昏瞶的時候,醫治我們不安寧的精神,使那不知何處去的力,注射在這狹窄的生命。待到天明我?好像了你的鼓舞砥礪,會覺得天地可廢,大道永峙,能夠再到塵土中為同胞,為國家爭尺寸的生命。

此刻,月光瀉地,星點爛天,遠遠的峰巒,僅餘下淡淡的一抹。我們的靈魂若有若無地在你朗澈的慈懷裡橫倒了。風流雲逝的人,上帝啊,起伏在你中間;但願你無不覆幬的愛保全我們。阿們。

(趙紫宸《冬暮感痛禱文》,稍經修訂)

 

冰心晚禱詞

濃濃的樹影做成帳幕,絨絨的草坡,便是祭壇——慈憐的月,穿過密葉,照見了虔誠靜寂的面龐。

四無人聲,嚴靜的天空下,我深深叩拜——全能的上帝!求你絲絲的織了明月的光輝,作我智慧的衣裳,莊嚴的冠冕,我要穿著它,溫柔地沉靜地酬應眾生。

煩惱和困難,在你的恩光中一齊拋棄;只剛強自己,保守自己,永遠在你座前作聖潔的女兒,光明的使者,讚美大靈!

四無人聲,嚴靜的天空下,只慈憐的月,照著虔誠靜寂的面龐。

Christ the light of the world has come to dispel the darkness of our hearts. In his light let us examine ourselves and confess our sins.

(Silence is kept.)

Lord of grace and truth, we confess our unworthiness to stand in your presence as your children. We have sinned:
(All) forgive and heal us.

(All) forgive and heal us.

Your Son our Saviour was born in poverty in a manger. Forgive our greed and rejection of your ways. We have sinned:
(All) forgive and heal us.

The shepherds left their flocks to go to Bethlehem. Forgive our self-interest and lack of vision. We have sinned:

The wise men followed the star to find Jesus the King. Forgive our reluctance to seek you. We have sinned:

上帝, 我們的天父, 你出於厚愛, 派遣你的聖子來臨, 讓世界得以新生. 聖子正與被嫌棄者一處, 正在患難者中間, 求你引領我們尋見他. 因基督之名, 求主俯聽我們的祈禱.

God our Father, in love you sent your Son that the world may have life: lead us to seek him among the outcast and to find him in those in need, for Jesus Christ's sake.

(Additional Collect for the Second Sunday after Christmas, Common Worship)

面對複雜世界禱詞

天父啊,我是無知的人。面對世界的複雜性,我實在不能理解。然而,我不想因為自己的知識淺薄而退縮,求天父賜我聰明智慧,好叫我明白各樣的道理;更求天父給我屬靈的洞見,叫我懂得明辨是非,如何在最微小的崗位上作你的見証。這世界是你的,你愛世上所有的人,不論膚色、不論宗教、不論文化背景。求天父的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。求主教我們謙卑自己,不妄稱祢的名。願我們效法主耶穌的謙卑捨己,將主的愛與他人分享。因基督之名,求主俯聽我的祈禱。阿們。

Taize daily prayer

Jesus, light of our hearts, since you rose from the dead, you have never stopped coming to us. Whatever point we may be at, you are always waiting for us. And you tell us: Come to me, you who are

尼布爾處變禱詞

(寧謐禱詞/上)

上主,力不能挽者,求俾我泰然處之。力能挽者,求俾我毅然為之。孰此孰彼,求賞我智慧以明辨之。阿們。

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Amen.

(attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr)

(寧謐禱詞/下)

活在當下
珍惜當下
接納艱辛乃導向詳和的路徑。

能如基督坦誠承受這罪惡的世態,
按其現實本相,而非照我所願;
相信凡事祂會歸正妥善,
若我順服祂的旨意;
如此,我或許在今生享受相當的喜悅,
在來世中能享永遠與主同在的無上喜樂。
阿們。

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

(下折 from GCF 黃廣強)

Prayer of Solace

May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen.

(attributed to John Cardinal Newman)

飯前謝恩禱詞

上主,我等日用生計,謝主顧念,教我等亦念及他人所需。願光榮歸予父及子及聖神,起初如是,今日亦然,直到永遠。阿們。

 

Compline

When evening comes we turn to you, the maker of all things.
We seek that peace and comfort which your kindness always brings.
Protect us from all dangers now and all throughout the night;
that we may rise once more with Christ, who is our truth and light.

Give glory to the Father, who is source of all that is.
Give glory to the Son, who died that we might all be his.
Give glory to the Holy Ghost, whom they to earth do send.
Give glory to our triune God whose rule will never end. Amen.

主顯節集禱祝文

上主,你今日以星光引導,將你的聖子顯示給萬民。我們現在因信德之光而認識了你,求你不斷地引導我們,安抵天鄉,得以享見你的聖容。因你的聖子、我們的主基督耶穌,他和你及聖神,是唯一上帝,永生永王。阿們。

O God, who by the leading of a star manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth: mercifully grant that we, who know you now by faith, may at last behold your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


 

The Methodist Covenant Prayer

I am no longer my own but yours.
Put me to what you will,
rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for you or laid aside for you,
exalted for you or brought low for you;
let me be full, let me be empty,
let me have all things, let me have nothing;
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.

And now, glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

 

為當權者祈禱文

上主, 求你不要一言不發, 請來提點普世的當權者, 使他們明白自己所肩負的是何等重大的任務. 求你感化他們善用職權, 按照公義行事; 不要偏袒偽善的人, 也不要因怕受人操縱而疏忽, 不為貧窮及可憐的人秉持公道.

上主, 我們每人都是你的子女, 都分享你的生命. 你有一顆厚道和大公的心, 求你讓我們也擁有這樣的心, 請來開啟我們的心竅, 讓我們懂得在弱者身上享見你的聖容, 以和善, 以正直的態度來接待每一位兄弟.

上主, 你是慈愛而偉大的天父, 你不以權威來統治我們, 反而藉基督親身的表率, 教導我們彼此相愛, 為首的要服務弱小的. 求你使我們深切地了解, 在你的國裡, 權威就是服務. 阿們.

 

伏求聖神降臨禱文

上帝聖神,求你降臨,從至高的天廷,放射你的光明。

窮人的慈父,求你降臨!恩寵的施主,求你降臨!
心靈的真光,求你降臨!

你是最會慰藉人心的聖神,你是我們衷心歡迎的嘉賓,
你是人生旅程中舒適的庇蔭。

在勞苦中你是憩息,在悲痛時你是慰藉。在酷熱裡你是清風。

你是幸褔的真光,求你照射著我們,充滿你信者的身心。
除非有你的幫助,人便一無所有,人便一無是處。
求你洗淨我們的污穢,醫治我們的創傷,滋潤我們憔悴的身心。

求你馴服冥頑的人,溫暖冷酷的心,引領迷途者脫離迷津。
凡是信賴你的人,求你扶助,賜與豐富的恩寵,施以慈愛的照顧。

求你賞給我們修德的能力,賜紿我們善終的洪恩,
施予我們永褔的歡欣。阿們。
