LAUDS - Morning Prayer (Breakfast)


Opening Sentance

My soul truly is still, and waits for God; from whom comes my deliverance. . . . .Psalm 62:1.

Always be joyful, pray continually;
give thanks, whatever happens.

    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever.
Praise the Lord!

Sukkot - Wave the Lulav

Face east while holding the Lulav bundle in your right hand and the etrog in your left hand. You lift them together with the etrog (lemon) pointing downward and recite the Lulav blessing.

Blessed are you, Lord our God,
King of the Universe,
Who sanctifies us with His commandments
and commanded us regarding the waving of the Lulav.

The Armour of God

Almighty God,
grant us your wisdom and favour,
give us the grace to cast off the works of darkness
and put on the full armour of God,
now in the time of this mortal life,
Place on us the belt of truth, because you are the way,
    and the truth and the life,
the breastplate of righteousness,
    because we have no righteousness of our own,
    but you became our righteousness on the cross.
Place on us shoes of the Gospel of peace
    that we miss no opportunity to share your love with others.
Put on us the shield of faith,
    that the fiery darts of the enemy do not harm us in any way.
Put on us the helmet of salvation,
    that our minds be protected and renewed daily in You.
Put on us the sword of the Spirit,
    which is the word of God;
    and may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    the Love of God
    and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with us all for ever more.
