Devotional Tidbit: From the Benedictine Breviary

From the Litany for Monday in Week III in Lauds...

Praise to you, Father everlasting. You open your hand and fill all creatures with blessing. Listen to these petitions as we say: Lord, make haste to help us.

--For the end of hatred and distrust among Christians. Lord, make haste to help us.

--For the renewal of our service in the church. Lord...

--For the enrichment of our sacred reading and private prayer.

--For the healing of broken relationships.

--For the rule of justice and peace.

--For the relief of hunger and disease.

--For the fulfillment of the hopes of the faithful departed. May they
   be found worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray in the words given us by Christ: Our Father...

Concluding Prayer: Lord Jesus, you know each of us by name and have called us to follow you; teach us how to respond anew in every opportunity this day will bring. We ask you , you who love us with the Father and the Spirit forever and ever.
--Benedictine Breviary
