TODAY’S PSALM (PSALM 143)

(Week 25 of the year: Friday)

R. Blessed be the Lord, my rock.

1. Blessed be the Lord, my rock.
He is my love, my fortress;
he is my stronghold, my saviour,
my shield, my place of refuge. (R.)

2. Lord, what is man that you care for him,
mortal man, that you keep him in mind;
man, who is merely a breath
whose life fades like a passing shadow? (R.)

ALLELUIA

Alleluia, alleluia!
May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
enlighten the eyes of our mind,
so that we can see what hope his call holds for us.
Alleluia!

PRAYER FOR WHEN WE ARE WORN OUT

Dear Jesus, lay thy wounded Hand
upon my weary head,
and teach me to have courage
in the paths that I must tread.
Bless me, and bless those whom I love,
and give us grace to see:
these crosses bravely borne by us
will keep us close to thee.

And if at times a shadow falls
in unexpected ways,
put thy gentle Hand in mine
and guide me through the days.
So bless my people, one and all,
with thy protecting grace,
and impart to them thy Wisdom
‘ere they meet thee face to face.
Amen.
