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.
O Lord, my heart is not proud nor haughty my eyes. I have not gone after things too great nor marvels beyond me. Truly I have set my soul in silence and peace. As a child has rest in its mother’s arms, even so my soul. O Israel, hope in the Lord both now and for ever.
Reading: Wisdom 7:27a; 8:1
The Wisdom of God, who is one, can do all things, and renews everything while herself perduring; Indeed, she reaches from end to end mightily and governs all things well.
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.
Fill our hearts with love. Lord hear our prayer! Make our hearts ready to hear your voice. Lord hear our prayer! May the dead rejoice at the heavenly banquet. Lord hear our prayer!
Dear Jesus, Fill our hearts with faith, hope, and charity. May we always be found ready to follow you in all you desire. We ask the Father for this in your name in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
