Prayer During the Day
- Concluding Prayer
Daytime Prayer begins as follows, while making the sign of the cross (from forehead to breast and from left shoulder to right)
O God, come to our aid.
—O Lord, make haste to help us.
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. Alleluia.
Alleluia is omitted during Lent.
Outside of Ordinary Time, the antiphon for the psalmody, and the reading, verse, and prayer are found in the Proper of Seasons. A note in the Psalter will remind you of this.
The conclusion (as found in the Ordinary) is as follows:
Let us praise the Lord.
—Thanks be to God.
