Daily Prayer

Opening

Oh God, make speed to save us.

Oh Lord, make haste to help us.

You, O God, are the well of life.

When we look to you, we shall see the light.

Psalm 112

Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, is now
and shall be for ever. Amen

Scripture Readings

First Reading

If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2Chronicles 7:13-14

Second Reading

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Luke 6:27-28

    Lord Jesus Christ, we thank you
    for all the benefits that you have won for us,
    for all the pains and insults that you hve born for us.
    Most merciful redeemer,
    friend and brother,
    may we know you more clearly,
    love you more dearly,
    and follow you more nearly,
    day by day.

    Amen

    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    Lead us not into tempation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.
