Daily Prayers for March 20

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”

Set our hearts to sing your praise : and our bodies to do your will.

Psalm 104:1, 13 16

Bless the Lord, O my soul : O Lord my God, how excellent is your greatness! you are clothed with majesty and splendor.

You water the mountains from your dwelling on high : the earth is fully satisfied by the fruit of your works.

You make grass grow for flocks and herds : and plants to serve mankind;

that they may bring forth food from the earth : and wine to gladden our hearts,

oil to make a cheerful countenance : and bread to strengthen the heart.

Set our hearts to sing your praise : and our bodies to do your will.

Exodus 7:8 – 24 Mark 8:1 – 10

Set our hearts to sing your praise : and our bodies to do your will.

Maria Skobtsova, a twentieth-century nun remembered in Russia as Mother Maria, said, “The meaning of the liturgy must be translated into life.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, we begin this day praising you. May your liturgy set our souls to dancing, and may your Spirit guide our feet today. 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.
