Daily Prayers for May 24

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, O Sky (Gaao Re)”

Alabare! Alabare! : Alabare a mi Senor!

Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, all you nations : laud him, all you -peoples.

For his loving-kindness toward us is great : and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever. Hallelujah!

Alabare! Alabare! : Alabare a mi Senor!

Numbers 24:12 – 25 Luke 9:37 – 50

Alabare! Alabare! : Alabare a mi Senor!

Ambrose, a fourth-century bishop of Milan, said, “Yes, a psalm is a blessing on the lips of the -people, a hymn in praise of God, the assembly’s homage, a general acclamation, a word that speaks for all, the voice of the church, a confession of faith in song. It is the voice of complete assent, the joy of freedom, a cry of happiness, the echo of gladness. It soothes the temper, distracts from care, lightens the burden of sorrow. Day begins to the music
of a psalm. Day closes to the echo of a psalm.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Let the moments and the hours of this day reverberate with sounds of our singing, with the words of the psalm, and with the praises we offer to you, O 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.
