Every day, we will post a few brief prayers inspired by the Liturgy of the Hours.
O Lord, open my lips. And my mouth shall declare your praise.
You care for the earth, give it water, you fill it with riches. Your river in heaven brims over to provide its grain.
Reading 1 Corinthians 12:24b, 25-26
God has so constructed the body, that there may be no dissension in the body, but that all the members may be concerned for one another. If one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members share its joy.
O Lord Jesus, protect and help our Bishop. Come, Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus, save those who are persecuted. Come, Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus, provide food for the hungry. Come, Lord Jesus!
Dear Jesus, Help us to live our lives in justice, peace and love so that we may live with you forever. Amen.
