Inviting the Trinity

Father, grant that I may always turn to you in prayer for every need –
  for my needs,
  for the needs of your Church, and
  for the needs of your world.
Jesus, grant I may always meditate on your love –
  manifest within my heart,
  manifest in your Church, and
  manifest throughout your world.
Spirit, grant that I may always be a channel of your grace –
  grace within my own thoughts and emotions,
  grace within your Church, and
  grace within your world.
Holy Trinity, grant that I may glorify you in all my actions –
  privately in my home, and
  publicly in your Church and your world.

John Sergieff (aka St John of Kronstadt) 1829 – 1908, Russian Orthodox priest, wrote prayers that could be adopted by ordinary people

1 Peter 4:11

If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.
If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides,
  so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.
To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
