Bless the Lord, whose name is to be praised,
Our Father who art in heaven,
who has given us his laws,
to show us the error of our ways,
Blessed is his son, Christ the Messiah,
who redeemed us from having broken them.
Blessed are you, O Holy Spirit,
who assists us in sinning no more,
and sustains us in the way of the Lord,
grant us wisdom and understanding this day.
Old Testament Reading - The Greatness and Faithfulness of God
1“Listen, O heavens and earth!
Listen to what I say!
2My words shall fall upon you
Like the gentle rain and dew,
Like rain upon the tender grass,
Like showers on the hillside.
3I will proclaim the greatness of the Lord.
How glorious he is!
4He is the Rock. His work is perfect.
Everything he does is just and fair.
He is faithful, without sin.
Please remember our Prayer Requests
We pray for all people in their daily life and work;
For our families, friends, and neighbours
and for those who are alone.
For this community,
and the world;
For all who work for justice, freedom, and peace.
Hear us, Lord;
For your mercy is great.
