Daily Prayers for September 16

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 “Oh the Deep, Deep Love of -Jesus”

Show us the light of your countenance, Lord : and we shall be saved.

Psalm 80:14 17

Turn now, O God of hosts, look down from heaven; behold and tend this vine : preserve what your right hand has planted.

They burn it with fire like rubbish : at the rebuke of your countenance let them perish.

Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand : the son of man you have made so strong for yourself.

And so will we never turn away from you : give us life, that we may call upon your name.

Show us the light of your countenance, Lord : and we shall be saved.

Hosea 5:8 – 6:6 Matthew 8:18 – 27

Show us the light of your countenance, Lord : and we shall be saved.

Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of -Jesus, wrote, “The most wonderful thing is unity with -Jesus and with the Father. In him we shall partake in God if we firmly resist and flee all the arrogant attacks of the prince of this world. Unity of prayer, unity of supplication, unity of mind, unity of expectancy in love and in blameless joy: this is -Jesus Christ and there is nothing greater than he. Flock together, all of you, as to one temple of God, as to one altar, to one -Jesus Christ, who proceeded from the one Father, who is in the one and returned to the one.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Bind us to you, O Lord, even when we are tempted to fall away, so we might witness to your faithfulness in your Spirit’s power. 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.
