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.

Weekly Guide for Daily Prayer for this week

The Collect for Week 17

O God, protector of those who hope in you,
without whom nothing has firm foundation, nothing in holy,
bestow in abundance your mercy upon us
and grant that, with you as our ruler and guide,
we may use the good things that pass
in such a way as to hold fast even now
to those that ever endure.

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.
