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.
The Lord is faithful in all his words and loving in all his deeds. The Lord supports all who fall and raises all who are bowed down. The eyes of all creatures look to you and you give them their food in due time. You open wide your hand, grant the desires of all who live. The Lord is just in all his ways and loving in all his deeds. He is close to all who call him, who call on him from their hearts. He grants the desires of those who fear him, he hears their cry and he saves them. The Lord protects all who love him; but the wicked he will utterly destroy Let me speak the praise of the Lord, let all mankind bless his holy name for ever, for ages unending.
Reading: Romans 8:15-16
You did not receive a spirit of slavery leading you back into fear, but a spirit of adoption through which we cry out, "Abba!" (that is, "Father!") The Spirit himself gives witness with our spirit that we are children of 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.
Make your Church a sign of unity, Come Lord Jesus! Help all bishops and priests to be good shepherds, Come Lord Jesus! Unite all Christians to you and to one another, Come Lord Jesus!
Dear Father of all, Without you we can do nothing. Give us wisdom to always do your will. We ask this through Christ your Son. Amen.
