Daily Prayer April 8

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
This is the day that God as made. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! Let us rejoice and be glad.

Psalm 118
Give thanks to the God of Goodness
whose love endures forever.

Let the house of Israel say,
“Unending is God’s love!”
Let the house of Aaron say,
“Unending is God’s love!”
Let all who reverence God say,
“Unending is God’s love!”

In my distress I called;
I was answered and set free.
God is with me;
I do not fear.
What can anyone do against me?
God is with me as my strength;
I shall not be afraid.

It is better to trust in the Holy One
than to rely on human help.
It is better to trust in the Holy One
than to rely on generous hearts.

The nations surrounded me;
with God’s help, I overcame them.
Like bees they surrounded me,
blazing like raging fire.
With God’s help, I overcame them.

I was thrust down,
thrust down and falling,
but God, my strength and my song,
raised me up.

From the hearts of the just
shouts of joy can be heard.
God has worked wonders
and set me free.

I shall not die,
for in God’s love I live.
God dealt with me justly
but did not let me die.

Open the gates of holiness;
I will enter and give thanks.
This is God’s own gate
where the just may enter.
I will thank God for answering my prayer.

The stone rejected by the builders
has become the cornerstone.
How wonderful for us to see
the work of the Holy One.

This is the day God made;
let us rejoice and be glad.
God grants blessing and salvation.
Blest be the one who comes in God’s name.

Go forward in procession with branches,
for God gives light.
Let loud hosannas fill the air.
I will give thanks and praise all my life.
Give thanks and say,
“Unending is God’s love!”

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
