Daily Prayers for September 26

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 “I Want -Jesus to Walk with Me”

I call with my whole heart : your word will give me life.

Psalm 119:146 52

I call to you; oh, that you would save me! : I will keep your decrees.

Early in the morning I cry out to you : for in your word is my trust.

My eyes are open in the night watches : that I may meditate upon your promise.

Hear my voice, O Lord, according to your loving-kindness : according to your judgments, give me life.

They draw near who in malice persecute me : they are very far from your law.

You, O Lord, are near at hand : and all your commandments are true.

Long have I known from your decrees : that you have established them for ever.

I call with my whole heart : your word will give me life.

Micah 6:1 – 8 Matthew 12:1 – 14

I call with my whole heart : your word will give me life.

We have these verses from John of the Cross:

I will mourn my death already,

lament the life I live, as long

as misdeed, sin and wrong

detain it in captivity.

O my God, when will it be?

The time when I can say for sure,

at last I live: I die no more.

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Save us, Lord, from the grip of death that so often controls our lives. Help us each to say with the psalmist, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord!” 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.
