From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Prayers and Intercessions

Let us humbly call on the Lord Jesus Christ, who rescued us, his people, from our sins.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

We pray to you, Christ, for your holy Church. You gave yourself up to sanctify her, washing her clean with the Word of life.
Renew your Church and bring her to purity through repentance.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

Good master, show the young the path that you have chosen for each one of them,
that they may follow the direction that is best for them.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

You took pity on our weaknesses: raise the spirits of the sick, give them health,
and make us, too, eager to care for them.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

Help us to remember the dignity conferred on us through baptism,
that we may always live for you.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

Give peace to the dead, and glory;
and grant that we, like them, may one day reign with you in heaven.
– Jesus, Son of David, take pity on us.

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


O God, your inexhaustible grace enriches us with every blessing.
Give us the gift of abandoning our old life and becoming new,
to be ready for the glory of your heavenly kingdom.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Amen.
