“Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
to deliver their soul from death,
and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the Lord;
he is our help and shield.
Our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.” Psalm 33:18-22
Gracious and Loving God, we look to you in all things, for our hope is in your steadfast love. Instruct us and teach us in the Way. Counsel us with your loving eye. Our soul waits for you, our help and our shield. Grant us your grace and mercy, for we trust in your Holy Name.
All Wise and Holy Father, nourish your people with the resurrected life of your Son. In his light, may we see light. We offer our lives to you as a living sacrifice, for this is our spiritual worship. Transform us by the renewing of our minds so that we may be able to discern your perfect will. May your steadfast love be upon us, for we hope in You: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; One God for ever and ever. Amen.
“Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
