PRAYER FOR THIS MORNING (WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7)

Our Lady of the Rosary

Prayer for the Morning

 

Let us proclaim God’s goodness

in the assembly of the faithful!

 

Glory to the Father…. Alleluia!

 

HYMN

 

The gladness of thy motherhood,

The anguish of thy suffering,

The glory now that crowns thy brow,

O Virgin-Mother, we would sing.

 

Hail, blessed mother, full of joy

In thy consent, thy visit too;

Joy in the birth of Christ on earth,

Joy in him lost and found anew.

 

Hail, sorrowing in his agony—

The blows, the thorns that pierced his brow;

The heavy wood, the shameful Rood—

True queen and chief of martyrs thou!

 

Hail in the triumph of thy Son,

The quick’ning flames of Pentecost;

Shining a queen in light serene,

When all the world is tempest-tossed.

 

O come, you nations, roses bring

Culled from these mysteries divine,

And for the mother of your King

With loving hearts your chaplets twine.

 

PSALM 86:1-6, 11-13

 

All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers. (Acts 1:14)

 

Mary, Mother of the Church, prays with us and for us. Through her example and intercession, we learn the lesson of faithful prayer, just as through our meditation on the mysteries of the rosary we learn the lesson of faithful life taught by Mary and by her Son Jesus.

 

Turn your ear, O Lord, and give answer

for I am poor and needy.

Preserve my life, for I am faithful:

save the servant who trusts in you.

 

You are my God, have mercy on me, Lord,

for I cry to you all the day long.

Give joy to your servant, O Lord,

for to you I lift up my soul.

 

O Lord, you are good and forgiving,

full of love to all who call.

Give heed, O Lord, to my prayer

and attend to the sound of my voice.

 

Show me, Lord, your way

so that I may walk in your truth.

Guide my heart to fear your name.

 

I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart

and glorify your name for ever;

for your love to me has been great:

you have saved me from the depths of the grave.

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God (Ephesians 6:18)

 

With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones.

 

When you call me, when you go to pray to me,

I will listen to you.

(Jer 29:12)

 

CANTICLE OF ZECHARIAH

 

As for me, far be it from me to sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you and to teach you the good and right way. (1 Sam 12:23)

 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;

he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior,

born of the house of his servant David.

 

Through his holy prophets he promised of old

that he would save us from our enemies,

from the hands of all who hate us.

 

He promised to show mercy to our fathers

and to remember his holy covenant.

 

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham:

to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship him without fear,

holy and righteous in his sight

all the days of our life.

 

You, my child, shall be called the prophet

of the Most High;

for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

to give his people knowledge of salvation

by the forgiveness of their sins.

 

In the tender compassion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness

and the shadow of death,

and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

 

Glory to the Father…

 

INTERCESSIONS

 

Let us ask Mary’s intercession on behalf of all who are in need:

 

R/Lord, hear your Mother’s prayer.

 

Mother of good counsel, you prayed with the disciples as they waited in the Upper Room:

– pray for all those who await deliverance from suffering and death. R/

 

Mother of our Savior, you watch with a mother’s care over the whole body of Christ:

– pray for all those in need of salvation. R/

 

Mother of God, you dwell in glory before the face of God:

– pray always for your children. R/

 

(Personal intentions)

 

Our Father….

 

Loving Father, increase our devotion to the most holy ­rosary, and draw us ever closer to you through the intercession of the Mother of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
