The Morning Prayer

I bow my knees: Canticle from  Ephesians

I bow my knees before the Lord our God.
Each fam’ly comes from God:
The Spirit strengthen yours with inner power.
May Christ dwell in your hearts!
May you be filled now, filled with the fullness of God.
May you be filled now, filled with the fullness of God.

 

Let’s pray for peace in the Holy Land,
For Syria and Afghanistan,  The Yemen and Ethiopia
And all the troubled countries
where people’s lives are spoiled
or taken from them by violence or war.
We pray for a change of heart
in those who need to learn to show mercy.

 

O God, come to our aid
O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.

 

Psalm 115
I trusted when I felt afflicted, I walk in the sight of the Lord,

And even in the face of death, I will walk in the presence of God.

I will walk in the presence of God.

 

Your servant, Lord, is ever trusting.  My bonds you have loosened with care
I offer thanks and sacrifice, I will walk in the presence of God.
I will walk in the presence of God.

 

My vows to God I keep with gladness, I dwell in the house of my Lord.
My promises I will ulfil. I will walk in the presence of God.
I will walk in the presence of God.

 

Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit both now and for ever. Amen.
I will walk in the presence of God.

 

Let us pray

God our Father,
You called John Duns Scotus to serve you
in the simplicity of life of the Franciscans
and in the search for understanding.
May we be encouraged to follow Christ more faithfully
as we see both simplicity and wisdom in Blessed John.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen

 

 

Glory to God in the highest . . . . . . . .

 

Alleluia, alleluia.
Speak, O Lord, your servant is list’ning, alleluia.
Alleluia, alleluia.

After Communion:   Canticle

Benedictus  4

 

And you, my child, are favoured by the Most High:
you shall be called a prophet of our God.
You shall go forth as herald from the Lord,
and shall prepare the ways on which he comes.
You shall make known the wonders of salvation
to everyone called chosen by the Lord.
