The Divine Hours – highlights for me today

The Call to Prayer
Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD;* let us exalt his Name together.
Psalm 34:3

The Request for Presence
Open my eyes, that I may see* the wonders of your law.
Psalm 119:18
The Greeting

I will confess you among the peoples, O LORD;* I will sing praise to you among the nations. For your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens,* and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Psalm 57:9–10

The Refrain for the Morning Lessons

Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you,* and by your great might spare those who are condemned to die.
Psalm 79:11

Sometimes it is helpful to go here

or here and be blessed by liturgy, ritual, a mix of Scripture for me to read pray and meditate on, timeless prayers from our church fathers, and the sense of unity knowing that there are fellow believers all over the world, praying these prayers, worshipping our God, advancing His Kingdom.

May you experience Him… the One who came to set prisoners FREE, to give life to the dead, to fill our hearts with His joy and peace… who came for ME!!

A place to record my journey of creating a life of balance. First as God's child and bride, "wifing", mothering, homeschooling, leading worship, neighboring, mentoring, teaching piano, and the myriad of other things that clamor for my time and energy. And a place to put pictures to show my family whom I miss incredibly, and who live so very far away from us here in Alaska!! View all posts by reneegrace
