Daily Prayers for October 28

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 “Fairest Lord -Jesus”

O -Jesus, how I love your name : its power is every day the same.

Psalm 135:13 14, 19 21

O Lord, your name is everlasting : your renown, O Lord, endures from age to age.

For the Lord gives his -people justice : and shows compassion to his servants.

Bless the Lord, O house of Israel : O house of Aaron, bless the Lord.

Bless the Lord, O house of Levi : you who fear the Lord, bless the Lord.

Blessed be the Lord out of Zion : who dwells in Jerusalem. Hallelujah!

O -Jesus, how I love your name : its power is every day the same.

Ezra 9:1 – 15 2 Co-rin-thi-ans 13:1 – 14

O -Jesus, how I love your name : its power is every day the same.

In his Rule for monastic communities, Benedict of Nursia wrote, “Such a follower of Christ lives in reverence of him and does not take the credit for a good life but, believing that all the good we do comes from the Lord, gives him the credit and thanksgiving for what his gift brings about in our hearts. In that spirit our prayer from the psalm should be: Not to us, O Lord, not to us give the glory but to your own name. That is St Paul’s example, for he took no credit to himself for his preaching when he said: It is by God’s grace that I am what I am. And again he says: Let anyone who wants to boast, boast in the Lord.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

You, who led Israel through the waters, plant us by streams of living water. Root us in your love and grow us up to bear the fruit of your Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control. 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.
