The Call to Prayer
Glory be to you, O God,
for the rising of the sun,
for color filling the skies,
and for the whiteness of daylight.
Preserve me, God, I take refuge in you.
I say to the Lord: "You are my God.
My happiness lies in you alone."
You have put in my heart a marvellous love
for the faithful ones who dwell in your land.
You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand happiness for ever.
A Reading from Job 41:12-34
O God, Father of Jesus Christ,
open our hearts to your word
and to the power of the Spirit.
Give us love to discover your will
and strength to carry it out today,
for you are light,
for ever and ever. Amen.
