Daily Prayer March 20

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
Walk in the presence of the Holy One. Give thanks to the God of gods.

Psalm 136
We give thanks to you, O God,
for all that is,
for your love endures forever.

You alone do great wonders.
It was your wisdom that made the skies
and fixed the earth firmly on the seas,
for your love endures forever.

It was you who made the great lights,
the sun to illumine the day,
the moon and the stars to guard the night,
for your love endures forever.

The first-born of the Egyptians you smote;
you brought Israel out from their midst.
You divided the Red sea in two.
You let Israel pass through
and drowned Pharaoh and his force in the sea,
for your love endures forever.

You led your people through the desert.
You struck nations in their greatness
and dethroned leaders in their splendor.
You bestowed on Israel their inheritance,
for your love endures forever.

You remembered us in our distress
and rescued us from our oppressors.
You provide for all living creatures.
To you we give thanks,
for your love endures forever.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
