Daily Prayers for November 24

O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you

as the day rises to meet the sun.

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.

Your mercies are new each morning, Lord : your faithful love lasts forever.

Psalm 118:1 5

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

Let Israel now proclaim : “His mercy endures for ever.”

Let the house of Aaron now proclaim : “His mercy endures for ever.”

Let those who fear the Lord now proclaim : “His mercy endures for ever.”

I called to the Lord in my distress : the Lord answered by setting me free.

Your mercies are new each morning, Lord : your faithful love lasts forever.

Isaiah 19:19 – 25 Revelation 21:22 – 22:5

Your mercies are new each morning, Lord : your faithful love lasts forever.

A prayer of Irish monk Columbanus: “Loving Savior, be pleased to show yourself to us who knock, so that in knowing you, we may love only you, love you alone, desire you alone, contemplate only you day and night, and always think of you. Inspire in us the depth of love that is fitting for you to receive as God. May our love be so great that the many waters of sky, land and sea cannot extinguish it in us.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, you’ve brought us safely to this new day. Help us to live it with joy, and in simple acts of kindness. 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.
