A Morning Prayer (leading into Mass)

Grace to you and peace from God the Father,
grace to you and peace from the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever.
Amen.

 

 

Lord,
We pray for peace in the Holy Land,
for Syria and all the other troubled countries
where people’s lives are spoiled or taken from them
by violence or war.
We pray for refugees,
and for generous hearts for those who need to show mercy.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We sit for the psalm

Psalm 1: How joyful are the hearts of all who trust in the Lord.

How happy is the one who shuns the sinner’s headstrong way,
But takes delight by day and night in pondering God’s law.

Such folk are like a tree that grows beside a flowing stream.
Its fruitful harvest never fails, its leaves stay fresh and green.

The wicked blow like winnowed chaff before a driving wind.
The just will know God’s loving care, while wicked ways are doomed.

Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and ever more.

 

Let us pray:

Almighty ever living God,
you call us to act justly, love tenderly,
and walk humbly before you.
Give us generous hearts
that we may walk together
with the companions you have given for our journey.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Preparation of the Gifts

A new commandment I give unto you: that you love one another
as I have loved you, that you love one another,
as I have loved you.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples –
if you have love one for another.

Blest be the Lord the God of Israel,
who came to us; and brought us back from sin.

God promised this through holy men and women
who spoke for him down through the mists of time.
