Saturday Noonday Prayer (May 13)

Saturday Noonday Prayer (adapted from Daily Prayer for All Seasons)


Alleluia! Risen Lord,
deepen our desire for you. Alleluia!


God of steadfast love: Turn our hearts to you, that we may once again delight in your goodness and rejoice in the good news of the risen Christ; in whose name we pray. Amen.

Praise: Psalm 118:19-24

Open for me the gates of righteousness;
I will enter them; I will offer thanks to the Lord.

“This is the gate of the Lord;
the righteous shall enter through it.”

I will give thanks to you, for you answered me
and have become my salvation.

The same stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.

This is the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.

On this day that the Lord has acted,
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Gloria Patri/Gloria al Padre

Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo y al Espíritu Santo: *
como era en el principio, ahora y siempre, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Scripture: Luke 9:12-17

The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to Jesus and said, ‘Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place.’ But he said to them, ‘You give them something to eat.’ They said, ‘We have no more than five loaves and two fish—unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.’ For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, ‘Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.’ They did so and made them all sit down. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.


Where might we find abundance, when we learn to see as Jesus sees?


Lord Jesus, you rise triumphant over death and the grave:
Christ our life, save us.

Christ, the Lord of life, raise us to new life:
Christ our life, save us.

In a world where so many suffer because of hunger and injustice:
Christ our life, save us.

Lord’s Prayer/Padre Nuestro

Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu Nombre,
venga tu reino,
hágase tu voluntad,
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día.
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
como también nosotros perdonamos
a los que nos ofenden.
No nos dejes caer en tentación
y líbranos del mal.
Porque tuyo es el reino,
tuyo es el poder,
y tuya es la gloria,
ahora y por siempre. Amén.

Prayer: Collect for Saturday

Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Going Out

Alleluia! Risen Lord,
deepen our desire for you. Alleluia!
