Morning Prayer — Sunday — Lent 2

Part 1. From the Divine Office


    O Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth shall proclaim Your praise.

    O God, come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

    As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

    Praise be to you, Lord, King of eternal glory.


Lenten Acclamations For Reflection:—
Acknowledging our sinfulness, our need of repentance, and expressing our strong desire to be restored fully to God's household.

During Lent these morning acclamations are taken from the Mass of the day. Any one of them can be recited as an antiphon before and after the psalm, or be simply the subject of a meditation.

  • To You I lift up my soul, O Lord; in You, O my God, I trust; let me not be put to shame. Remember that Your compassion, O Lord, and Your kindness are from of old; let not our enemies exult over us; deliver us, O God of Israel, from all our tribulations.
  • Put an end to my affliction and my suffering, and take away all my sins. Relieve the troubles of my heart and bring me out of my distress, O Lord.
  • I will delight in Your commands, which I love exceedingly; and I will lift up my hands to Your commands, which I love.
