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 waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and trembled; the depths were moved with terror. The clouds poured down rain, the skies sent forth their voice; your arrows flashed to and fro. Your thunder rolled round the sky, your flashes lighted up the world. The earth was moved and trembled when your way led through the sea, your path through the mighty waters and no one saw your footprints. You guided your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
Reading: Romans 8:35, 37
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Trial, or distress, or persecution, or hunger, or nakedness, or danger, or the sword? Yet in all this we are more than conquerors because of him who has loved us.
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 peace to the world. Remain with us, Lord. Pour our your blessings abundantly upon us. Remain with us, Lord. May those who have died rejoice in seeing your face. Remain with us, Lord.
Dear Father, May we always rejoice to be followers of your Son. Guide us as we journey through life so that we may at last reach your Kingdom. We ask this through Jesus your Son in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
