In Prayer & Devotionals

Opening Prayer

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


Praise the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit
Both now and forever;
The God who is, who was, and is to come,
At the end of the ages.

Psalm 4

When I call, answer me, O God of justice;
from anguish you released me, have mercy and hear me!

O men, how long will your hearts be closed,
will you love what is futile and seek what is false?

It is the LORD who grants favors to those whom he loves;
the LORD hears me whenever I call him.

Fear him; do not sin: ponder on your bed and be still.
Make justice your sacrifice and trust in the LORD.

“What can bring us happiness?” many say.
Lift up the light of your face on us, O LORD.

You have put into my heart a greater joy
than they have from abundance of corn and new wine.

I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once
for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
and abides in the shade of the Almighty

says to the LORD: ‘My refuge,
my stronghold, my God in whom I trust!’

It is he who will free you from the snare
of the fowler who seeks to destroy you;

he will conceal you with his pinions
and under his wings you will find refuge.

You will not fear the terror of the night
nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the plague that prowls in the darkness
nor the scourge that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand fall at your right,

you it will never approach;
his faithfulness is buckler and shield.

Your eyes have only to look
to see how the wicked are repaid,

you who have said: ‘LORD, my refuge!’
and have made the Most High your dwelling.

Upon you no evil shall fall,
no plague approach where you dwell.

For you has he commanded his angels,
to keep you in all your ways.

They shall bear you upon their hands,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.

On the lion and the viper you will tread
and trample the young lion and the dragon.

Since he clings to me in love, I will free him;
protect him for he knows my name.

When he calls I shall answer: ‘I am with you.’
I will save him in distress and give him glory.

With length of life I will content him;
I shall let him see my saving power.

Canticle of Simeon

Lord, save us while we are awake.
Protect us while we sleep;
And Christ, with whom we keep our watch,
will guard our souls in peace.

Now Lord, You will let Your servant go in peace,
according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your saving deed
which you have set before all men:
A light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and for glory to Your people Israel.

Praise the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit,
both now and forever.
The God who is, who was, and is to come,
at the end of the ages.

May the almighty and merciful Lord
grant us a restful night and a peaceful death.
