Prayer During the Day

 

Preparation

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

 

My heart tells of your word, ‘Seek my face.’

Your face, Lord, will I seek.                                                         Psalm 27.10

Praise

You may like to say the following, listen to your favourite hymn, or read the words of your favourite hymn.

We praise you, O God,

we acclaim you as the Lord;

all creation worships you,

the Father everlasting.

To you all angels, all the powers of heaven,

the cherubim and seraphim, sing in endless praise:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of your glory.

from Te Deum Laudamus
