February 18
Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

From sunrise to sunset your name shall be praised.

Psalm 63

From early morning, O God, I seek you;
for you I am thirsting.
I yearn for you
like dry and lifeless land.

Draw me to you with the breath of love.
Let me dwell in your presence
and walk in your strength and glory
that I may praise you all my days.

Lifting up my hands, I call upon your name,
for your love is finer than life.
I shall feast on the riches of your banquet;
my heart will leap for joy in praise of you.

At night I remember your kindness,
for you have been my help.
In the shelter of your love I rejoice,
for you uphold me in great love.

Those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the grave.

All who speak falsely shall be silenced,
while those who keep faith shall be blest.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
