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.
Your justice I have proclaimed in the great assembly. My lips I have not sealed; you know it, O Lord. I have not hidden your justice in my heart but declared your faithful help. I have not hidden your love and your truth from the great assembly.
Reading: Ezekiel 34:31
You, my sheep, you are the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, says the Lord God.
The Canticle of Mary
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name.
We praise you for the gifts of the earth. Thank you, Father! We praise you for the gifts of the day. Thank you, Father! We praise you for the gifts of your love. Thank you, Father!
Dear Father, Guide our thought, words, and actions so that we may be your true sons and daughters. We ask this in the name of Jesus who lives with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
