St. Boniface

Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

Walk in the presence of the Holy One. Give thanks to the God of gods.

Psalm 25

To you, O God, I lift up my soul.
I trust in you;
let me not be disappointed.
Do not let my enemies triumph.

Those who hope in you
shall not be disappointed,
but only those who heedlessly break faith.

Your ways make known to me.
Guide me in your truth, / teach me.
You are the God of my salvation.

Because of your goodness
I hope in you all day long.
Remember, your compassion
and your steadfast love are from of old.
Do not remember the sin of my youth.
In your love remember me.

God is good and upright,
showing the path to those who stray,
guiding the humble in a safe path,
teaching the way to the poor.
God's ways are faithfulness and love
for those who keep the covenant.

For the sake of your name
forgive my guilt,
for it is great.

Those who reverence God
will be shown the path of life.
They shall live in happiness;
their children shall possess the land.

God's friendship is for the faithful;
to them the covenant is revealed.

My eyes are always on God
who rescues my feet from the snare.

Turn to me and have mercy,
for I am lonely and poor.
Relieve the distress of my heart,
free me from my suffering.
See my affliction and my pain
and take all my sin away.

See how my enemies multiply,
how violent their hatred has grown.
Preserve my life and rescue me.
Do not disappoint me;
you are my refuge.

May truth and integrity protect me,
for my hope is in you, O God.
Redeem Israel from all its distress.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
