Sunday night

Monday Sootoro (Prayed Sunday night)


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as we begin and until we conclude.
May mercy and compassion be poured forth upon us
in this world and the next.
O Lord, our God, to you be glory forever.


Lord God,
as we trace upon ourselves the sign of your glorious cross,
grant that we may conquer all evil passions
and find a new source of strength to fight against the evil one.
May we draw help and strength from your cross
to confront our visible and invisible enemies;
and we shall exalt your glory,
and that of your Father, and your Holy Spirit,
now and forever. Amen.

Psalm 91

You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,

Say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

for he will rescue you from the snare of the fowler,
from the destroying pestilence.

With his pinions he will cover you,
and under his wings you shall take refuge;
his faithfulness is a buckler and a shield.

You shall not fear the terror of the night
nor the arrow that flies by day;

Not the pestilence that roams in darkness
nor the devastating plague at noon.

Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right side, near you it shall not come.

Rather with your eyes shall you behold
and see the requital of the wicked.

Because you have the Lord for your refuge;
you have made the Most High your stronghold.

No evil shall befall you,
nor shall affliction come near your tent,

For to his angels he has given command about you,
that they guard you in all your ways.

Upon their hands they shall bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tred upon the asp and the viper;
you shall trample down the lion and the dragon.

Because he clings to me, I will deliver him;
I will set him on high because he acknowledges my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in distress;

I will deliver him and glorify him;
with length of days I will gratify him
and will show him my salvation.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever.  Amen.


I burn this incense to praise and honor the most holy Trinity.

Praise, glory, an honor to the King of kings and Lord of lords; he is the Creator of heaven and earth,
the One who ordered the stars in their places.
To him is due adoration and praise, all days and nights,
from all peoples, nations and tribes, at all times and feasts, now and forever.  Amen.


O God,
Creator of the universe,
we now present to you the aroma of this incense (our prayers).

O God, ever to be worshipped and adored,
please accept it from our feeble hands and through it pardon all our evil deeds.
In your mercy do not forget to forgive your people, for we are truly sinners, yet because you are merciful and compassionate accept our petitions.
Through this incense (our prayers) grant forgiveness of the sins and faults of your servants;
heal all who are sick and suffering;
provide the hungry and the needy with their daily bread;
fill the earth with your blessings;
increase the yield of its fruits and crops;
keep us safe and grant us your mercy,
for your are rich in every goodness.
Give a place to those who have fulfilled their lives in this world in the heavenly Jerusalem where you wipe away all their sins.
Accept our petitions for them along with the prayers of all those who have pleased you.
On their behalf and for them we offer thanksgiving to you, your Father, and your Holy Spirit, now and forever.  Amen.


Let us confess, adore, and praise the holy and glorious Trinity:

Father, Son, + and Holy Spirit. Amen.


Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Holy are you, O God;
Holy are you, O Strong One;
Holy are you, O Immortal One;
have mercy on us

Holy are you, O God;
Holy are you, O Strong One;
Holy are you, O Immortal One;
have mercy on us

Holy are you, O God;
Holy are you, O Strong One;

have mercy on us

Lord, have mercy on us.
Lord, forgive us and have mercy on us.
Lord, hear us and have mercy on us.
Lord, accept our worship and our prayers.
Lord, come to our assistance and have mercy on us.


Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be your name;
your kingdom come;
your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
now and forever.  Amen.


O Lord,
as your rested on your cross you cried out:
“Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.”
We, therefore, commend our spirits into your hands, O Lord,
tonight and all the days of our lives,
but especially at the hour of our death,
represented now by our sleep.
To you we abandon our bodies, thoughts, feelings and all the we are.
Keep us without stain that our sleep may glorify you.
At the end of our days, may a peaceful sleep carry us to you,
who neither slumbers nor sleeps.
To you be glory, forever.  Amen.

(optional HYMN TO MARY)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
