Dear community,

I wish you a blessed Lent and I want to thank all of you who gave so generously when I appealed for support last November. Your generosity was overwhelming. You have my heart felt thanks and I pray God blesses you for stepping up to help with this important work. With your support we are currently averaging 16,714 people coming to DivineOffice.org to pray every day. 2,318 of you are providing support with an average amount of $2.75 each month.

The Divine Office prayer community is something special with people of all cultures, rich and poor, all praying together around the globe. We are one body making a difference glorifying God and intervening for the salvation of the world. So we are asking, only those who can afford to help, and are not doing so now, to please give, a little or a lot, according to your ability to do so. Your contribution enables thousands of other people to pray with us and brings about miracles in the lives of so many.

Please signup for a monthly contribution if you haven’t already.

May God’s grace be with you all,

Dane Falkner, Divine Office producer and God’s servant

Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth will proclaim your praise.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing to the Lord
and shout with joy to the Rock who saves us.
Let us approach him with praise and thanksgiving
and sing joyful songs to the Lord.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

The Lord is God, the mighty God,
the great king over all the gods.
He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
and the highest mountains as well
He made the sea; it belongs to him,
the dry land, too, for it was formed by his hands.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

Come, then, let us bow down and worship,
bending the knee before the Lord, our maker,
For he is our God and we are his people,
the flock he shepherds.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

Today, listen to the voice of the Lord:
Do not grow stubborn, as your fathers did in the wilderness,
when at Meriba and Massah they challenged me and provoked me,
Although they had seen all of my works.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

Forty years I endured that generation.
I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray
and they do not know my ways.”
So I swore in my anger,
“They shall not enter into my rest.”

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant. Come, Let us give thanks to the Lord for God’s great love is without end.
