Daily Prayers for October 21

O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you

as the day rises to meet the sun.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Come, let us sing to the Lord : let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.

Song “Vamos Todos al Banquete”

Save us that we might give thanks : and glory in your praise.

Psalm 106:1 5

Hallelujah! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good : for his mercy endures for ever.

Who can declare the mighty acts of the Lord : or show forth all his praise?

Happy are those who act with justice : and always do what is right!

Remember me, O Lord, with the favor you have for your -people : and visit me with your saving help;

that I may see the prosperity of your elect and be glad with the gladness of your -people : that I may glory with your inheritance.

Save us that we might give thanks : and glory in your praise.

Nehemiah 2:1 – 20 2 Co-rin-thi-ans 8:16 – 24

Save us that we might give thanks : and glory in your praise.

Clement of Alexandria said, “One purchases immortality through generosity; and, by giving the perishing things of the world, receives in exchange for these an eternal mansion in the heavens! Rush to this market, if you are wise, O rich man! If need be, sail around the whole world.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, teach us the power of a generosity that interrupts the logic of scarcity with the extravagant self-giving of divine love. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you : wherever he may send you;

may he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;

may he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;

may he bring you home rejoicing : once again into our doors.
