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 let me know your love for I put my trust in you. Make me know the way I should walk: to you I lift up my soul. Rescue me, Lord, from my enemies; I have fled to you for refuge. Teach me to do your will for you, O Lord, are my God. Let your good spirit guide me in ways that are level and smooth. For your name’s sake, Lord, save my life; in your justice save my soul from distress.
Reading: Isaiah 55:6-7
Seek the Lord while he may be found, call him while he is near. Let the scoundrel forsake his way, and the wicked man his thoughts; Let him turn to the Lord for mercy; to our God, who is generous in forgiving.
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.
Draw bishops, priests, and deacons closer to you. Jesus, come and save us! May our hearts thirst for you. Jesus, come and save us! Forgive us our sins. Jesus, come and save us!
Merciful Father, May everything we do begin with your inspiration, continue with your help, and reach perfection under your guidance. We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son who lives with you and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
