Daily Prayers for February 17

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 “What Wondrous Love”

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosannah in the highest!

Psalm 89:1 5

Your love, O Lord, for ever will I sing : from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.

For I am persuaded that your love is established for ever : you have set your faithfulness firmly in the heavens.

“I have made a covenant with my chosen one : I have sworn an oath to David my servant:

‘I will establish your line for ever : and preserve your throne for all generations.’

The heavens bear witness to your wonders, O Lord : and to your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosannah in the highest!

Genesis 32:22 – 33:17 Hebrews 9:1 – 14

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosannah in the highest!

In the second century, Tertullian wrote, “Nature is schoolmistress, the soul the pupil; and whatever one has taught or the other has learned has come from God — ​the Teacher of the teacher.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Despite the fact we are all made in your image, God, we can see ourselves as brothers and sisters only by the light of your redeeming grace. Give us eyes to see that we are made from the same dirt, and help us work to reconcile ourselves to one another and to the ground beneath us. 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.
