Let Us Pray!

previous post soliciting prayer intentions from our little community of Psalm-sayers has received responses that are a good cross-section of human need.

A dying mother-in-law.
A young mother who will soon give birth.
Success in a new business.
A needed raise at work.
Facing surgery.
Mental illness.
Struggles against temptation.
Children and grandchildren who have strayed from the faith.
For the spiritual needs of our Pope and his helpers in the curia.

So, what you do is this: when you read the intercessions at vespers, add this one:  "We commit to your love and providence all  the special needs of the Coffee&Canticles community."

 Or words to that effect!

And feel free to add yours here or in the earlier post "Sharing Our Burdens at Vespers

Thanks, everyone.

  1. Psalm 117 (118)
    A cry of rejoicing and triumph
    Give thanks to the Lord, for his great love is without end. Alleluia.
    Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
    and his kindness is for ever.
    Now let Israel say, he is good
    and his kindness is for ever.
    Now let the house of Aaron say it too:
    that his kindness is for ever.
    Now let all who fear the Lord say it too:
    that his kindness is for ever.
    In my time of trial I called out to the Lord:
    he listened, and led me to freedom.
    The Lord is with me,
    I will fear nothing that man can do.
    The Lord, my help, is with me,
    and I shall look down upon my enemies.
    It is good to seek shelter in the Lord,
    better than to trust in men.
    It is good to seek shelter in the Lord,
    better than to trust in the leaders of men.
