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.
In the morning, fill us with your love; we shall exult and rejoice all our days. Give us joy to balance our affliction for the years when we knew misfortune. Show forth your work to your servants; let your glory shine on their children. Let the favor of the Lord be upon us: give success to the work of our hands, give success to the work of our hands.
Reading: 1 Peter 3:8-9
All of you should be like-minded, sympathetic, loving toward on another, kindly disposed, and humble. Do not return evil for evil or insult for insult. Return a blessing instead. This you have been called to do, that you may receive a blessing as your inheritance.
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.
Pour out the grace of conversion and repentance on all of us. Come, Lord Jesus! Show your love to all refugees. Come, Lord Jesus! Show your face to those who have died. Come, Lord Jesus!
Most merciful Father, Fill us with your light and love so that we may live with generosity and faith. We ask this in the name of Jesus who lives with you and the Holy Spirit for all eternity. Amen.
