A piece of today’s reading & prayer, from The Book of Common Prayer:
Ps 57.10 I will give you thanks, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praise to you among the nations.
11 For your loving-kindness is as high as the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
12 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and your glory over all the earth.
gentle protector in time of trouble,
pierce the gloom of despair
and give us, with all your people,
the song of freedom and the shout of praise;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
