O Lord, listen to our supplications with mercy and answer them with compassion. In your good pleasure, O God accept, our adoration and prayer and be gracious to us.
Praise and honor, glory and thanksgiving are the blessing we give you, Lord God of our fathers, for having escorted us through the shadows of the night and shown us, once more, the light of day!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)

I always enjoy the peaceful moments in church before Sunday Liturgy. There is a mix of both tranquility and anticipation.
“‘I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.'” (Psalm 122:1)
