Daily Prayers for August 12
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 “Holy, Holy, Holy”

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosanna in the highest!

Psalm 66:1 – 4

Be joyful in God, all you lands : sing the glory of his name; sing the glory of his praise.

Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! : because of your great strength your enemies cringe before you.

All the earth bows down before you : sings to you, sings out your name.”

Come now and see the works of God : how wonderful he is in his doing toward all -people.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosanna in the highest!

1 Sam-uel 17:31 – 49 Matthew 27:1 – 10

Heaven and earth are full of your glory : Hosanna in the highest!

Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, said, “Neither revolutions nor faith can be won without keen suffering. For me Christ was not to be bought for thirty pieces of silver but with my heart’s blood. We buy not cheap in this market.”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

Loving God, your goodness is all around us. But sometimes it seems overshadowed by pain, death, and suffering. Assure us in times of doubt that you are the God of resurrection. May our lips sing your praise, and may our lives be a living sacrifice to 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.
