Midday Prayer

O God, come to my assistance.
O Lord, make haste to help me.


Come, Creator Spirit, Paraclete, gift of God most high, visit the souls of your people, and fill with supernal grace the hearts which you created. Amen


I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees. I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws. Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law. Yet you are near, O LORD, and all your commands are true. Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever.


Let your mercy, O Lord, be upon us.
As we have hoped in you.


Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Our Father, who art in heaven....


Lord, hear my prayer.
And let my cry come unto you.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
May divine help always be with us.
And with those who are absent from us.
Amen.
