 5 God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.

 10 "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

 11 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Scripture Reading  

The following short lessons or another suitable passage is read

1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures

R. Thanks be to God.

 

Romans 6:10 The death that He died, He died to sin, once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Thus also count yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

R. Thanks be to God.

 

Matthew 28:18 “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations

R. Thanks be to God.

 

V. Proclaim the good tidings of His salvation.

R. Tell of His glory among the nations

 

V. The Lord be with you.

R. And with thy spirit.

V. Let us pray.


The Kyrie may be said in place of the Lord’s Prayer provided the Lord’s Prayer is said once during the morning hours and once during the evening hours

V. Lord, have mercy upon us.

 V. Lord, have mercy upon us.

 

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.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who at this sixth hour of the day didst hang from the Cross for the redemption of the world, and didst shed Thy precious Blood for the remission of our sins; grant, we humbly beseech Thee, that in all our labors this day, we may have Thy work on the Cross before our eyes and the hope of the resurrection within our hearts; this we ask in thy name, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

ALMIGHTY God, who alone gave us the breath of life, and alone can keep alive in us the holy desires thou dost impart; We beseech thee, for thy compassion's sake, to sanctify all our thoughts and endeavors; that we may neither begin an action without a pure intention nor continue it without thy blessing. And grant that, having the eyes of the mind opened to behold things invisible and unseen, we may in heart be inspired by thy wisdom, and in work be upheld by thy strength, and in the end be accepted of thee as thy faithful servants; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
