Our prayer on this day, the Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Lord, we are in such awe of You. We are blessed by the fruits of your handiwork. We believe that we are favored.
Lord, we know quite well that Your day, our days in the Reign of the Lord, will come.
Lord, we have been blessed with the very prosperity of Jerusalem, may we reach out our hands to the poor and extend our arms to the needy.
May we walk in Your ways as children of the light and children of the day. We desire to be Your good and faithful servants, faithful in small matters, worthy of your trust with great responsibilities.
Send forth Your Spirit with fortitude that we might remain alert and sober, ready for You. We do not want to fear You as a surprising thief at night. We stand in awe of You, Lord, and desire, rather to share in the Master’s joy.
