Daily Prayers for September 22

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”

Lord, you satisfy the thirsty : and fill the hungry with good things.

Psalm 107:4 8

Some wandered in desert wastes : they found no way to a city where they might dwell.

They were hungry and thirsty : their spirits languished within them.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble : and he delivered them from their distress.

He put their feet on a straight path : to go to a city where they might dwell.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his mercy : and the wonders he does for his children.

Lord, you satisfy the thirsty : and fill the hungry with good things.

Micah 2:1 – 13 Matthew 9:35 – 10:15

Lord, you satisfy the thirsty : and fill the hungry with good things.

Dom Helder Camara, a twentieth-century bishop in Brazil, said, “When I feed the poor, they call me a saint, but when I ask why the poor are hungry, they call me a Communist.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, your good news brings healing to our bodies, minds, and spirits. Teach us the necessity and power of asking the right questions, and help us live the answers as living members of that new social order which is your body. 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.
