Saturday Prayers

Morning

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 4:8

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

Psalm 27

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? * The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, * they stumbled and fell.

3 Though a host were encamped against me, yet my heart would not be afraid, * and though war rose up against me, yet would I put my trust in him.

4 One thing have I desired of the Lord; one thing I seek: * that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,

5 To behold the fair beauty of the Lord, * and to seek him in his temple.

6 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his tabernacle; * indeed, in the secret place of his dwelling he shall hide me, and set me high upon a rock of stone.

7 And now he shall lift up my head * above my enemies round about me.

8 Therefore I will offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness; * I will sing and speak praises unto the Lord.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; * as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Benedictus

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; * he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior, * born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old that he would save us from our enemies, * from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers * and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, * to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

Free to worship him without fear, * holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, * for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

To give his people knowledge of salvation * by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God * the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

To shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death, * and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1:68-79

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Collect

Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Personal Prayer

From the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord of Hosts.

Colossians 3:1

O God, make speed to save us.

4 Praise him with the timbrels and dances; * praise him upon the strings and pipe.

5 Praise him with the resounding cymbals; * praise him with the loud cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. * O praise the Lord.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; * as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Deus Misereatur

May God be merciful unto us, and bless us, * and show us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us.

Let your way be known upon earth, * your saving health among all nations.

Let the peoples praise you, O God; * indeed, let all the peoples praise you.

O let the nations rejoice and be glad, * for you shall judge the peoples righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.

Let the peoples praise you, O God; * let all the peoples praise you.

Then shall the earth bring forth her increase, * and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.

God shall bless us, * and all the ends of the world shall fear him.

1 Praise the Lord, O my soul, * and all that is within me, praise his holy Name.

3 Who forgives all your sin * and heals all your infirmities,

4 Who saves your life from the pit * and crowns you with mercy and loving-kindness,

5 Who satisfies you with good things, * renewing your youth like an eagle's.

6 The Lord executes righteousness and judgment * for all those who are oppressed with wrong.

7 He showed his ways to Moses, * his works to the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, * long-suffering and of great goodness.

9 He will not always chide us, * neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, * nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.

11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, * so great is his mercy also toward those who fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, * so far has he set our sins from us.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; * as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

The Word of the Lord.
     Thanks be to God.

Magnificat

My soul magnifies the Lord, * and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;

For he has regarded * the lowliness of his handmaiden.

For behold, from now on, * all generations will call me blessed;

For he that is mighty has magnified me, * and holy is his Name.

And his mercy is on those who fear him, * throughout all generations.

He has shown the strength of his arm; * he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has brought down the mighty from their thrones, * and has exalted the humble and meek.

He has filled the hungry with good things, * and the rich he has sent empty away.

He, remembering his mercy, has helped his servant Israel, * as he promised to our fathers, Abraham and his seed for ever.

Luke 1:46-55
