All Souls Daily Prayer Trinity Season 10/21/2020

 

the invitatory 

O Lord, open our lips

and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God

And renew a right Spririt within me. 

Cast me not away from your presence 

And take not your Holy Spirit from me. 

O give me the comfort of your help again 

And sustain me with your willing Spirit. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; 

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

 

prayer of thanksgiving

Canticle: Venite

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness:

O come, let us sing unto the Lord; *

let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving*

and show ourselves glad in him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God *

and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are all the depths of the earth, *

and the heights of the hills are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it, *

and his hands prepared the dry land.

O come, let us worship and fall down, *

and kneel before the Lord our Maker.

For he is our God, *

and we are the people of his pasture,

and the sheep of his hand.

Today, if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts *

as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness,

When your fathers tested me, *

and put me to the proof, though they had seen my works.

for morning prayer:

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence is kept

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day, so may the light of your presence, O God, set our hearts on fire with love for you; now and for ever.

the word of god

PSALM 120

Ad Dominum

1 When I was in trouble I called upon the Lord,*

and he hearkened to my calling.

2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips*

and from a deceitful tongue.

3 What reward shall be given or done unto you, O false tongue?*

Even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.

4 Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell in Meshech,*

and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.

5 My soul has long dwelt among those*

who are enemies of peace.

6 I labor for peace, but when I speak to them of it,*

they make themselves ready for battle.

PSALM 121

Levavi oculos

1 I will lift up my eyes unto the hills;*

from whence comes my help?

2 My help comes from the Lord,*

who has made heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot be moved,*

and he who keeps you will not sleep.

4 Behold, he who keeps Israel*

shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord himself is your keeper;*

the Lord is your defense upon your right hand,

6 So that the sun shall not burn you by day,*

neither the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;*

indeed, it is he who shall keep your soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in,*

from this time forth for evermore.

 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

1 John 5

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one that testifies, for the Spirit is the truth. There are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood, and these three agree. If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son. 10 Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony in their hearts. Those who do not believe in God have made him a liar by not believing in the testimony that God has given concerning his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 And this is the boldness we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him. 16 If you see your brother or sister committing what is not a mortal sin, you will ask, and God will give life to such a one-to those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin that is mortal; I do not say that you should pray about that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not mortal. 18 We know that those who are born of God do not sin, but the one who was born of God protects them, and the evil one does not touch them. 19 We know that we are God's children, and that the whole world lies under the power of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols.

Lord in your Mercy

Hear our prayer.

the lord’s prayer is said

 

the general thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Father of all mercies,

we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks

for all your goodness and loving-kindness

to us and to all whom you have made.

We bless you for our creation, preservation,

and all the blessings of this life;

but above all for your immeasurable love

in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;

for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.

And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,

that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise,

not only with our lips, but in our lives,

by giving up our selves to your service,

and by walking before you

in holiness and righteousness all our days;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,

be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.

 

the conclusion

for morning prayer:

Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

for during the day:

Go before us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy Name, and finally, through your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

for prayer in the evening

Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this life may rest in your eternal changelessness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
