Prayer for Illumination Scripture Reading

Matthew 6:25-34

Prayer of Thanksgiving O Lord our God, who supplies us with countless blessings, lift up our hearts in gratitude and thanksgiving. Help us to remember the gifts we seldom notice, the abundance we take for granted, the rich possibilities you provide. For our daily bread, for water that is pure, for houses to live in and friends to enjoy, we give you humble thanks. For beauty and fruitfulness, for healing and hope, for the comfort of your presence, we lift our voices in joyful praise now and always. Amen.

O, Divine Redeemer


Hugh Winn and Sidnei Alferes, tenors Ah! Turn me not away, receive me, tho’ unworthy! Hear Thou my cry, behold, Lord, my distress! Answer me from thy throne; haste Thee, Lord, to mine aid, Thy pity show in my deep anguish! Let not the sword of vengeance smite me, tho’ righteous thine anger, O Lord! Shield me in danger, O regard me! On Thee, Lord, alone will I call. O, divine Redeemer! I pray Thee, grant me pardon, and remember not my sins! Forgive me. Night gathers round my soul; fearful, I cry to Thee; Come to mine aid, O Lord! Haste Thee, Lord, haste to help me! Hear my cry! Save me, Lord, in Thy mercy; Save, in the day of retribution, from Death shield Thou me, O my God! O, divine Redeemer, have mercy! Help me, my Savior!
