PSALM OF THE DAY
Antiphon:
Every day will I bless you, and I will praise your name
for ever and ever.

Psalm 145
I will extol you, O my God and King,
and I will bless your name forever
and ever.

Every day will I bless you,
and I will praise your name forever
and ever.

Great is the Lord and highly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.

Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your might.

They speak of the splendor of your
glorious majesty
and tell of your wondrous works.

They discourse of the power of your
terrible deeds
and declare your greatness.

They publish the fame of your abundant
goodness
and joyfully sing of your justice.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.

The Lord is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works.

Let all your works give you thanks,
O Lord,
and let your faithful ones bless you.

Let them discourse of the glory of
your kingdom
and speak of your might,

Making known to men your might
and the glorious splendor of your
kingdom.

Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages,
and your dominion endures through
all generations.

The Lord is faithful in all his words
and holy in all his works.

The Lord lifts up all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look hopefully to you,
and you give them their food in
due season;

You open your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is just in all his ways
and holy in all his works.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.

He fulfills the desire of those who fear him,
he hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord keeps all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.

May my mouth speak the praise of the Lord,
and may all flesh bless his holy name
for ever and ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever.
Amen.

Antiphon:
Every day will I bless you, and I will praise your name

accept our petitions and lay your merciful right hand upon us.
On the great Day of your coming,
may we find true joy in you.
O Lord, our God, our hope is in you and we call upon your name; to you be glory for ever.
Amen.
EVENING PSALMS
Psalm 141:1-4
O Lord, to you I call; hasten to me;
harken to my voice when I call upon you.
Let my prayer come like incense before you;
the lifting up of my hands, like the evening sacrifice.

O Lord, set a watch before my mouth,
a guard at the door of my lips.
Let not my heart incline to the evil
of engaging in deeds of wickedness
With men who are evildoers;
and let me not partake of their dainties.
Psalm 142
With a loud voice I cry out to the Lord;
with a loud voice I beseech the Lord.
My complaint I pour out before him;
before him I lay bare my distress.
When my spirit is faint within me,
you know my path.
In the way along which I walk
they have hid a trap for me.
I look to the right to see,
but there is no one who pays me heed.
I have lost all means of escape;
there is no one who cares for my life.
I cry out to you, O Lord:
I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land
of the living.”
Attend to my cry,
for I am brought low indeed.
Rescue me from my persecutors,
for they are too strong for me.
Lead me forth from prison,
that I may give thanks to your name.
The just shall gather around me
when you have been good to me.

Psalm 119:105-112
A lamp to my feet is your word,
a light to my path.
I resolve and swear
to keep your just ordinances.
I am very much afflicted;
O Lord, give me life according to your word.
Accept, O Lord, the free homage of my mouth,
and teach me your decrees.
Though constantly I take my life in my hands,
yet I forget not your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me,
but from your precepts I have not strayed.
Your decrees are my inheritance forever;
the joy of my heart they are.
I intend in my heart to fulfill you statutes
always to the letter.
Psalm 117
Praise the Lord, all you nations;
glorify him, all you peoples!
For steadfast is his mercy toward us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen.
Alleluia.

HOOSOYO
PROEMION
Praise, glory and honor the One who pardons faults,
forgives sins, cleanses the impure, sanctifies the repentant,
and receives sinners.
He alone is compassionate and merciful, the hope and Savior of all people,
the good and kind Lord to whom is due glory and honor this
night,
and all the days of our lives,
now and for ever.
Amen.
SEDRO
Christ Jesus our Lord,
you do not desire the death of the sinner,
but that he repent of his evil conduct, and have life.
Hope of the despairing, and Savior of those who have fallen,
you promised:
“Ask and I shall give to you, knock and I shall open
to you;
I shall stretch forth my hand and pardon your faults
of ignorance.”
Strengthened by the hope of your kindness,
we who are faltering under the yoke of sin cry out for your
mercy,
for willingly we have offended you and we do not know how to
call upon you.
Like the publican we pray:
“O God, have mercy on your sinful servants.”
Receive us, in spite of our sin,
do not be angry with us and do not turn your face from us.
Pardon us and have mercy on us, O our Creator.
If you desire, you can purify us.
We have sinned against heaven and against you,
and no longer deserve to be called your servants.
Let your kindness reach us;
do not reject us, nor abandon us, like the foolish virgins,
to the darkness.

Do not leave us in our shame and confusion, outside the
gate of your paradise,
and do not extinguish our lamps at your festal banquet.
Do not shut the door of your goodness, nor reject us according to your justice,
but rather cover us with the mantle of your compassion,
that we may be sheltered from your awesome justice.
With the penitent sinner who returned justified,
and the evildoer who believed in you and entered paradise,
may we obtain the pardon of our faults and forgiveness
of our sins,
and enter the garden of light on the great and awesome Day
of your second coming.
To you we shall lift our voices in praise and glory,
now and for ever.
Amen.
QOLO
Lord,
accept this incense (our prayer) which we now offer to your
majesty,
as you accepted the incense of Zechariah who beheld the angel
and heard him announce the birth of John, the baptizer of Christ.
Lord,
through the intercession of your saints and holy martyrs,
accept our offering, as you accepted the incense offered by
the high priest.
May peace reign in the churches and monasteries,
and may their members enjoy your eternal protection.
ETRO
Lord God,
may this incense (our prayer) which we have offered for your
glory and our salvation,
be pleasing to you and obtain forgiveness of our sins.
For we lift up before you our faith,
that through your kindness our hearts may be cleansed and
purified.
To you, your only Son and your Holy Spirit be glory,
now and for ever.
Amen.

MAZMOORO
The heavens glorify you, earth praises you, the sea adores you; all sing of the hidden power which created them.
Heaven with its lights, the earth with its flowers, and the sea with its fish, all sing of the hidden power which created them.
Jesus, your flock implores you amid their sufferings and tears; in your kindness, deliver them from the evils which oppress them.
SCRIPTURE READINGS
A Reading from the Gospel of John
John 3: 22-36
After this, Jesus and his disciples went into the region of Judea, where he spent some time with them baptizing. John was also baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was an abundance of water there, and people came to be baptized, for John had not yet been imprisoned. Now a dispute arose between the disciples of John and a Jew about ceremonial washings. So they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, the one who was with you across the Jordan, to whom you testified, here he is baptizing and everyone is coming to him.” John answered and said, “No one can receive anything except what has been given him from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said that I am not the Messiah, but that I was sent before him. The one who has the bride is the bridegroom; the best man, who stands and listens for him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made complete. He must increase; I must decrease.” The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of earthly things. But the one who comes from heaven [is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy. For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.

SUPPLICATION
O Lord of night, and Master of all time,
hear our supplications and have mercy on us.
You reconciled heaven and earth,
grant peace to your Church and keep her children in the
light of the cross.
At night, when the light of the sun sets on the horizon,
be for us a radiant light, and we shall praise your majesty.
Son of God, may your Word be a lamp for us and a brilliant
sun to guide us.
Priests, sing to God during the night, just as Moses presented his evening offering, and commanded that sacrifices be offered
as praise and glory to God every evening and morning.
In the evening, instead of sacrifices, offer praise;
instead of burnt offerings, a humble prayer. Whoever
has understanding, speech and tongue must thank God
on behalf of voiceless creatures.

Lord, those you have gifted with reason and spiritual powers,
praise you for your glory. May the Church and her children
whom you have rescued from error, give glory and thanks-
giving to you, your Father and your Holy Spirit.
The Virgin Mary, your Mother, and the apostles, prophets and
martyrs intercede for us.
O God, through their prayers, strengthen the weak, comfort
the sick, grant pardon to the deceased, and forgive the
faults of us poor sinners.
Exalt, O Lord, the memory of your Mother and your saints,
through their prayers grant pardon to us and our deceased.
Through the prayers of your Mother, the prophets, apostles
and martyrs, watch over the living, and in your mercy,
forgive those who have died.
HOOTOMO
Let us confess, adore, and praise the holy and glorious Trinity: Father, Son ✛ and Holy Spirit.
Amen.
Lord, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Holy are you, O God;
Holy are you, O Strong One;
Holy are you, O Immortal One;
have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.
Lord, forgive us and have mercy on us.
Lord, hear us and have mercy on us.
Lord, accept our worship and our prayers.
Lord, come to our assistance and have mercy on us.

LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who are in heaven;
hallowed be your name;
your kingdom come;
your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil,
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
Amen.
O Lord, the night and the day are yours;
you uphold the light and the sun.
Through your power you direct the sequence of the seasons.
O Lord,
you have brought the day to its close and called forth the night; be for us that great Day that never ends.
In the evening let your light shine in our hearts,
and in the darkness of the night
enlighten us with the knowledge of your truth.
And so, through all the days of our lives,
we shall praise you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
To you be glory and may your mercy rest upon us,
now and for ever.
Amen.
EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE
Let us thank God for all the graces he has bestowed on us
this day which has passed in calm and peace.
Let us recall our failings against the commandments of God
and the Church in thought, word, deed and omission
We ask for God’s pardon as we pray:
Forgive us, Jesus!
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Glory be to you, O Lord.
Glory be to you, O Lord.
Glory be to you, O Lord.
God,
Father in heaven,
by your living and holy name,
keep us from evil and lead us not into temptation;
for we call upon you, O Lord, our God, our constant hope,
glory to you for ever.
O Lord, our Lord,
may our humble worship be pleasing to you;
may our prayers come before you and our actions give
you honor.
Let you mercy, kindness, help, graces and divine love
be poured abundantly upon us poor sinners,
both in heaven and on the earth
which you have created in your goodness.
O Lord, our God, to you be glory for ever.
Amen.
DISMISSAL
Peace be with you.
And also with you.
O God,
through the prayers of your Mother and the saints who have
believed in you;
through the prayers of the prophets, apostles, martyrs and confessors; through the prayers of the just, the priests, the holy fathers, pastors and teachers of the truth faith;
and through the prayers of N., Pope of Rome, N., our Patriarch, and N., our Bishop,
forgive your people and have mercy on your flock.
May God bless, forgive, sanctify, purify, and keep each of the faithful united with us in this spiritual office.
May mercy and compassion be upon us and all the faithful who
dwell here.
May peaceful rest be granted to those who have died in the faith.
May the faithful who live here experience the protection of
Christ’s victorious cross.

May we and all his servants, who adore him with bowed heads,
receive the mercy of the holy and glorious Trinity
Father, Son, ✛ Holy Spirit, to whom be glory now and for ever.
Amen.
May God forgive your sins,
pardon your failings,
and deliver you from the power of the enemy.
May he grant you the remission of your offenses.
Go in peace, and pray to Christ for me.
