Daily Prayer April 5

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
O God, you are the rock of our strength. Teach us to walk the path of truth.

Psalm 62
In God alone I am at rest;
my help comes from the Holy One.
I shall not be disturbed;
I shall stand firm.

How long will the wicked attack me?
They break me down
as though I were a crumbling wall.

Their plan is only to destroy;
they take pleasure in lies.
With their mouths they utter blessings,
but in their hearts they curse.

In God alone I am at rest;
my help comes from the Holy One.
I shall not be disturbed;
I shall stand firm.
In God is my safety and glory,
the rock of my strength.

Take refuge in God, all you people,
trusting at all times,
pouring out your hearts in praise.

A simple breath is all we are,
whether rich or poor, great or small.
When weighed in a balance,
all will be lighter than a breath.

Do not rely on violence
or oppress the poor.
Do not set your heart on riches,
even though they may increase.

God has spoken and I have heard:
"I am the source of your strength.
All will be repaid according to their deeds."

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
