LAUDS - Morning Prayer (Breakfast)


O Lord, open our lips;
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Opening Sentance

You sent forth your word, O Lord, and healed them; and saved their life from the grave. . . . .Psalm 107:20.

God ever reigns on high.
O come, let us worship.

Psalm 103:1-6,20-22

  1. Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name.
  2. Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and do not forget all his benefits—
  3. who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
  4. who redeems your life from the Pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
  5. who satisfies you with good as long as you live
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
  6. The Lord works vindication
    and justice for all who are oppressed.


  1. Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
    you mighty ones who do his bidding,
    obedient to his spoken word.
  2. Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
    his ministers that do his will.
  3. Bless the Lord, all his works,
    in all places of his dominion.
    Bless the Lord, O my soul.

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.
