Be gracious to me, | O Lord,*
  for to you do I cry | all the day.
For you, O Lord, are good and for- | giving,*
  abounding in steadfast love to all who call up- | on you.
Incline your ear, O LORD, and | answer me,*
  for I am poor and | needy.
In the day of my trouble I call up- | on you,*
  for you | answer me.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with | my whole heart,*
  and I will glorify your name for- | ever.
For great is your steadfast | love toward me;*
  you have delivered my soul from the depths | of Sheol.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

Be gracious to me, | O Lord,*
  for to you do I cry | all the day.
For you, O Lord, are good and for- | giving,*
  abounding in steadfast love to all who call up- | on you.


Collect of the Day


  O Lord, we pray that Your grace may always go before and follow after us, that we may continually be given to all good works; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
