St. Alcuin: O Lord our God

Thursday, March 28, 2019
    Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
    “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;
    the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”
    —Matthew 21:42 (NIV)
O Lord our God,
    Who has called us to serve You,
In the midst of the world’s affairs,
    When we stumble, hold us;
When we fall, lift us up;
    When we are hard pressed with evil, deliver us;
When we turn from what is good, turn us back;
    And bring us at last to Your glory.
    ... St. Alcuin (c. 735-804) (see the book)
    See also Matt. 21:42; Isa. 8:14; Mark 12:10; 1 Cor. 8:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are delivering us from evil.
