For you, O God, have proved us…

February 16, 2009

Bless our God, you peoples;                                                   make the voice of his praise to be heard; Who holds our souls in life, and will not allow our feet to slip. For you, O God, have proved us;                                   you have tried us just as silver is tried. You brought us into the snare;              you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.      You let enemies ride over our heads;                     we went through fire and water;                           but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.

Psalm 66:7-12

The Prayer Appointed for the Week:

O Lord, you have taught us that without love whatever we do is worth nothing:  Send your Holy Spirit and pour into my heart your greatest gift, which is love, the true bond of peace and all virtue, without which whoever lives is accounted dead before you.  Grant this for the sake of your only Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Concluding Prayers of the Church:

Heavenly Father, in you I live and have my being:  I humbly pray you so to guide and govern me by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of my life I may not forget you, but may remember that I am ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ my Lord.  Amen.
