Common Worship Daily Prayer

  PREPARATION      
     
    O God, make speed to save us.
All   O Lord, make haste to help us.
     
    If I climb up to heaven, you are there;
All   if I make the grave my bed, you are there also.
    Yesterday I was crucified with Christ;
today I am glorified with him.
Yesterday I was dead with Christ;
today I am sharing in his resurrection.
Yesterday I was buried with him;
today I am waking with him from the sleep of death.
    Gregory of Nazianzus (389)
     
    The Word of God  
     

Psalm 118.14-24

Refrain:I will give thanks to you,
for you have become my salvation.

14  The Lord is my strength and my song, 
and he has become my salvation.

15  Joyful shouts of salvation 
sound from the tents of the righteous:

16  ‘The right hand of the Lord does mighty deeds;
the right hand of the Lord raises up; 
the right hand of the Lord does mighty deeds.’

17  I shall not die, but live 
and declare the works of the Lord.

18  The Lord has punished me sorely, 
but he has not given me over to death.

19  Open to me the gates of righteousness, 
that I may enter and give thanks to the Lord.

20  This is the gate of the Lord; 
the righteous shall enter through it.

21  I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me 
and have become my salvation.

22  The stone which the builders rejected 
has become the chief cornerstone.

23  This is the Lord’s doing, 
and it is marvellous in our eyes.

24  This is the day that the Lord has made; 
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Refrain:I will give thanks to you,
for you have become my salvation.

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

Alpha and Omega,
all time belongs to you,

to you be glory and power
through every age and for ever.
All   Amen.
    {from the Easter Vigil}
   
    Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us
   
All   Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.
     
    The Conclusion  
    May the risen Christ give us his peace.
All   Alleluia. Amen.
