Daily Prayers for November 21

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 bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “Were You There?”

-Jesus, remember me : when you come into your kingdom.

Psalm 106:43 46

Many a time did he deliver them, but they rebelled through their own devices : and were brought down in their iniquity.

Nevertheless, he saw their distress : when he heard their lamentation.

He remembered his covenant with them : and relented in accordance with his great mercy.

He caused them to be pitied : by those who held them captive.

-Jesus, remember me : when you come into your kingdom.

Zechariah 14:1 – 11 Revelation 20:1 – 6

-Jesus, remember me : when you come into your kingdom.

A prayer of Catherine of Siena: “My sweet Lord, look with mercy upon your -people and especially upon the mystical body of your church. It would be no consolation for me to enjoy your life if your holy -people stood in death. For I see that sin darkens the life of your bride the church — ​my sin and the sins of others.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

-Jesus, please remember us, and that will strengthen us to turn again to you, to choose life, to work for justice and peace, to practice hospitality, to love our neighbors, and to trust that you will strengthen and equip us for the task. Thanks be to God. 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.
