Daily Prayers for March 13

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 bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”

Answer me, Lord, for your love is kind : in your compassion, turn to me.

Psalm 69:1 5

Save me, O God : for the waters have risen up to my neck.

I am sinking in deep mire : and there is no firm ground for my feet.

I have come into deep waters : and the torrent washes over me.

I have grown weary with my crying; my throat is inflamed : my eyes have failed from looking for my God.

Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; my lying foes who would destroy me are mighty : Must I then give back what I never stole?

Answer me, Lord, for your love is kind : in your compassion, turn to me.

Genesis 50:15 – 26 Mark 5:21 – 43

Answer me, Lord, for your love is kind : in your compassion, turn to me.

Perpetua of Carthage, a third-century martyr, said, “Stand fast in the faith, and love one another.”

Our Father

Lord, you ask us not to fear but to trust. Help our unbelief and grant us faith to stand fast in our love for one another. 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.
