TUESDAY AFTER EPIPHANY
Daytime Prayer



God, come to my assistance.
- Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen. Alleluia.


HYMN

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come,
From thy bright heav’nly throne,
Come take possession of our souls,
And make them all thy own.

Thou who art called the Paraclete,
Best gift of God above,
The living spring, the living fire,
Sweet unction and true love.

Thou who art sevenfold in thy grace,
Finger of God’s right hand
His promise teaching little ones
To speak and understand.

O guide our minds with thy blessed light,
With love our hearts inflame;
And with thy strength, which ne'er decays
Confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe;
True peace unto us bring;
And through all perils lead us safe
Beneath thy sacred wing.

Through thee may we the Father know,
Through thee the eternal Son,
And thee, the Spirit of them both,
Thrice-blessed Three in One.

All glory to the Father be,
With his coequal Son;
The same to thee, great Paraclete,
While endless ages run.

PSALMODY

Psalm 119:49-56
VII (Zain )

Remember your word to your servant
by which you gave me hope.
This is my comfort in sorrow:
that your promise gives me life.

Though the proud may utterly deride me
I keep to your law.
I remember your decrees of old
and these, Lord, console me.

I am seized with indignation at the wicked
who forsake your law.
Your statutes have become my song
in the land of exile.

I think of your name in the nighttime
and I keep your law.
This has been my blessing,
the keeping of your precepts. Glory...

Psalm 53
The foolishness of sinners
We have all sinned and are deprived of God's glory (Romans 3:23)

The fool has said in his heart:
There is no God above.
Their deeds are corrupt, depraved;
not a good man is left.

God looks down from heaven
on the sons of men
to see if any are wise,
if any seek God.

All have left the right path;
depraved, every one;
There is not a good man left,
no, not even one.

Will the evil-doers not understand?
They eat up my people
as though they were eating bread;
they never pray to God.

See how they tremble with fear
without cause for fear,
for God scatters the bones of the wicked.
They are shamed, God rejects them.

O that Israel's salvation might come from Zion!
When God delivers his people from bondage,
then Jacob will be glad and Israel rejoice. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Almighty Father, apart from you there is nothing true, nothing holy on earth. Dismiss our sins and give us strength in our weakness so that all who believe in your Son may rejoice in his glory.

Psalm 54:1-6,8-9
Plea for help
The prophet prays that God will deliver him from the malice of his enemies (Cassian).


O God, save me by your name;
by your power, uphold my cause.
O God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth.

For proud men have risen against me,
ruthless men seek my life.
They have no regard for God.
But I have God for my help.
The Lord upholds my life.

I will sacrifice to you with willing heart
and praise your name for it is good:
for you have rescued me from all distress
and my eyes have seen the downfall of my foes. Glory...
