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.
Canticle Revelation 15:3b-4
Mighty and wonderful are your works, Lord God Almighty! Righteous and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who would dare refuse you honor, Or the glory due your name, O Lord! Since you alone are holy, All nations shall come and worship in your presence, Your mighty deeds are clearly seen.
Reading: Hebrews 13:7-8
Remember your leaders who spoke the word of God to you; consider how their lives ended, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
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.
Bring joy to those who are weary. Lord, hear our prayer! Increase our faith, hope, and charity. Lord, hear our prayer! Heal our hearts hardened by our sins. Lord, hear our prayer!
Dear Jesus, Enlighten our minds through your teachings and fill our hearts with the love of your Holy Spirit. We ask the Father for this in your name in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
