Daily Prayers for March 30

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 “Sing and Rejoice”

In you alone we put our trust : let us not be put to shame.

Psalm 146:1 3

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord, O my soul! : I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

Put not your trust in rulers, nor in any child of earth : for there is no help in them.

When they breathe their last, they return to earth : and in that day their thoughts perish.

In you alone we put our trust : let us not be put to shame.

Exodus 13:1 – 2, 11 – 16 Mark 10:32 – 45

In you alone we put our trust : let us not be put to shame.

Peter Maurin, co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, said, “The world would be better off if -people tried to become better. And -people would become better if they stopped trying to become better off.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Lord, our efforts at faithfulness are fraught with failure more often than we care to admit. Thank you that your love for us is never wasted. Keep us rooted in your word, eating at your table, and praying by your Spirit, so that we may remember when we fail that we are part of your family not because we deserve to be but because you want us. 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.
