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.
Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing for joy. Know that he, the Lord, is God. He made us, we belong to him, we are his people, the sheep of his flock. Go within his gates, giving thanks. Enter his courts with songs of praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. Indeed, how good is the Lord, eternal his merciful love. He is faithful from age to age.
Reading: Jeremiah 30:18
Thus says the Lord: See! I will restore the tents of Jacob, his dwellings I will pity.
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.
Gather all people into your Church. Lord, have mercy on us. Encourage those who have no hope. Lord, have mercy on us. Bring those who have died into the light of Heaven. Lord, have mercy on us.
Dear Jesus, Come and save us from our sins. We ask the Father for this in your name in union with the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
