Praying Advent: Day 13

Praise     

Lauds (Traditional hour: dawn/waking up)
Laudate, omnes gentes, laudate Dominum! [Sing praises, all people, sing praises to the Lord!]

We greet the new day by praising the Creator.

Opening:

Praise the Lord, O my soul:
Praise God’s holy name.

Scripture

Thus says the Lord,
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you for your own good,
who leads you in the way you should go.
O that you had paid attention to my commandments!
Then your prosperity would have been like a river,
and your success like the waves of the sea;
your offspring would have been like the sand,
and your descendants like its grains;
their name would never be cut off
or destroyed from before me.

-Isaiah 48:17-19 NRSV

Meditation

Turn away from the busyness of the week and turn toward someone who gives you life or to whom you give life. Give thanks.

Praise God’s holy name.
