Praying the Prayer of the Church
for the Weeks of Ordinary Time
This is the Prayer the Church uses this week of Ordinary Time
for the Liturgy of the Hours
and the Opening Prayer for the Masses of this week.
We can reflect upon it, pray it ourselves, with our family,
or adapt it for our concrete desires this week.

The Collect for Week 8
Grant us, O Lord, we pray,
that the course of our world
may be directed by your peaceful rule
and that your Church may rejoice,
untroubled in her devotion.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
