Daily Prayers for November 13

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)”

Your majesty is over Israel, Lord : your strength is in the sky.

Psalm 68:28 34

Send forth your strength, O God : establish, O God, what you have wrought for us.

Kings shall bring gifts to you : for your temple’s sake at Jerusalem.

Rebuke the wild beast of the reeds : and the -peoples, a herd of wild bulls with its calves.

Trample down those who lust after silver : scatter the -peoples that delight in war.

Let tribute be brought out of Egypt : let Ethiopia stretch out her hands to God.

Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth : sing praises to the Lord.

He rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens : he sends forth his voice, his mighty voice.

Your majesty is over Israel, Lord : your strength is in the sky.

Malachi 2:1 – 16 Revelation 14:14 – 15:8

Your majesty is over Israel, Lord : your strength is in the sky.

John Scotus Eriugena, a ninth-century Irish monk, wrote, “Christ wears ‘two shoes’ in the world: Scripture and nature. Both are necessary to understand the Lord, and at no stage can creation be seen as a separation of things from God.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Thank you, Lord, for the endless ways you reveal yourself to us. We are so quick to separate heaven from earth, but you shine forth in all things created by your hand. Teach us that to delight in the beauty of the earth is another way of praising you. 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.
