Grab your coffee, put on your headphones, and press “play”. Pause as necessary if you need more time for reflection. If the one minute of silence in the middle is too much for you, add an extra minute; it will be worthwhile.
Lord, open my lips. My mouth will declare your praise (Psalm 51:15)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Canticle of Zechariah: Luke 1:68–79
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
for he has visited and redeemed his people;
and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David
(as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets who have been from of old),
salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us; to show mercy toward our fathers,
to remember his holy covenant, the oath which he swore to Abraham our father,
to grant to us that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies,
should serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life.
And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways,
to give knowledge of salvation to his people by the remission of their sins,
because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the dawn from on high will visit us,
to shine on those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death;
to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
The Lord’s prayer
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

I want you to press pause! Pause the podcast if you need more time for reflection during the intercessions, examination of conscience, etc. This is your prayer life, not mine :)
