Prayer for the Evening (Monday, January 3)

Prayer for the Evening

The Lord is high, yet he looks on the lowly:

come, let us adore him!


Glory to the Father, and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning,

is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!




Out from the rising of the sun,

O’er tracts of desert wild,

The Magi came on journey lone,

To seek the heav’n-born Child;

The star o’erhead their footsteps led,

And hope their way beguiled.


O humble Child, in manger laid!

The wise beheld you there,

And reverently their homage paid,

And gave their offerings rare.

Their quest was found, and to the ground

They bowed the head in prayer.


O Jesus, who in manger lay,

The Son of God most high,

Let us our humble homage pay,

And bring our offerings nigh,

And humbly lay them at your feet,

And low in worship lie.


Psalm 138


I, the Lord, am your healer. (Ex 15:26)

We worship the God whose love reaches out to touch and heal all the world’s wounds in Jesus Christ our Savior.


I thank you, Lord, with all my heart,

you have heard the words of my mouth.

In the presence of the angels I will bless you.

I will adore before your holy temple.


I thank you for your faithfulness and love

which excel all we ever knew of you.

On the day I called, you answered;

you increased the strength of my soul.


All earth’s kings shall thank you

when they hear the words of your mouth.

They shall sing of the Lord’s ways:

“How great is the glory of the Lord!”


The Lord is high yet he looks on the lowly

and the haughty he knows from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of affliction

you give me life and frustrate my foes.


You stretch out your hand and save me,

your hand will do all things for me.

Your love, O Lord, is eternal,

discard not the work of your hands.


Glory to the Father….


Word of God. 2 Kings 20:5


Thus says the Lord, the God of your forefather David: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you. In three days you shall go up to the Lord’s temple.

He went around all of Galilee,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness among the people. (Mt 4:23)


Canticle of Mary


The Lord binds up the wounds of his people. (Is 30:26)


My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,

my spirit rejoices in God my Savior

for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.


From this day all generations will call me blessed:

the Almighty has done great things for me,

and holy is his Name.


He has mercy on those who fear him

in every generation.


He has shown the strength of his arm,

he has scattered the proud in their conceit.


He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,

and has lifted up the lowly.


He has filled the hungry with good things,

and the rich he has sent away empty.


He has come to the help of his servant Israel

for he has remembered his promise of mercy,

the promise he made to our fathers,

to Abraham and his children for ever.


Glory to the Father…




God heals the world through the gift of his Son. With joy let us pray:

R/You stretch out your hand and save us!

We are your people, the work of your hands:

– make whole what sin has broken. R/

We are your people, the sheep of your flock:

– gather together what sin has driven apart. R/

We are your people, the Body of Christ:

– heal the wounds we have inflicted on one another. R/


(Personal intentions)


Our Father….


May the eternal love of God do all things for us. Amen.

of the Blessed Virgin Mary


Blessed Mother of God, Mary, perpetual Virgin,

temple of the Lord, shrine of the Holy Spirit,

you alone without compare were pleasing

to the Lord Jesus Christ;

pray for the people, intervene for the clergy;

intercede for devout women.



Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli

porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,

surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti,

natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem,

Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore

sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.


Loving mother of the Redeemer,

gate of heaven, star of the sea,

assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again.

To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,

yet remained a virgin after as before.

You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,

have pity on us, poor sinners.


V/ Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R/ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.


Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;

vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Evae.

Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes

in hac lacrimarum valle.


Eia ergo, advocata nostra,

illos tuos misericordes oculos

ad nos converte.

Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,

nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.


Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy,

our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

To you do we cry,

poor banished children of Eve.

To you do we send up our sighs,

mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, O most gracious advocate,

your eyes of mercy toward us,

and after this our exile

show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.


V/ Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R/ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
