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.
Psalm 110:1-5, 7
The Lord’s revelation to my Master: “Sit on my right: your foes I will put beneath your feet.” The Lord will wield from Zion your scepter of power: rule in the midst of all your foes. A prince from the day of your birth on the holy mountains; from the womb before the dawn I begot you. The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change. “You are a priest for ever, a priest like Melchizedek of old.” The Master standing at your right hand will shatter kings in the day of his great wrath. He shall drink from the stream by the wayside and therefore he shall lift up his head
Reading: Revelation 2:26, 28; 3:5b, 12, 20-21
To the one who wins the victory, who keeps to my ways till the end, I will give authority over the nations—the same authority I received from my Father. And I will give him the morning star. I will never erase his name from the book of the living, but will acknowledge him in the presence of my Father and his angels. I will make the victor a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall never leave it. I will inscribe on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which he will send down from heaven, and my own name which is new. Here I stand, knocking at the door. If anyone hears me calling and opens the door, I will enter his house and have supper with him, and he with me. I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself won the victory and took my seat beside my Father on his throne.
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.
Christ our King, gather us all into your Kingdom. Come, Lord Jesus! Christ our Savior, heal the sick. Come, Lord Jesus! Christ our Hope, come to help the dying. Come, Lord Jesus!
Eternal Father, We praise and thank you for making all things new through the victory of your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ. May we one day live forever with you, Jesus our King and the Holy Spirit of Love. Amen.
