Daily Prayers for April 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 “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”

If I stand, let me stand on your promise : when I fall, let me fall on your grace.

Psalm 105:1 2, 8 11

Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name : make known his deeds among the -peoples.

Sing to him, sing praises to him : and speak of all his marvelous works.

He has always been mindful of his covenant : the promise he made for a thousand generations:

the covenant he made with Abraham : the oath that he swore to Isaac,

which he established as a statute for Jacob : an everlasting covenant for Israel,

saying, “To you will I give the land of Canaan : to be your allotted inheritance.”

If I stand, let me stand on your promise : when I fall, let me fall on your grace.

Exodus 34:18 – 35 2 Thes-salo-nians 1:1 – 12

If I stand, let me stand on your promise : when I fall, let me fall on your grace.

Peter Maurin, co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, liked to say, “They say that I am crazy because I refuse to be crazy the way everyone else is crazy.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, help us to be foolish enough today to stand for you, foolish enough to trust you, foolish enough to call upon you, and foolish enough to wait on you. 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.
