USCCB - NAB - Psalm 119

USCCB - NAB - Psalm 119:
"I will run the way of your commands, for you open my docile heart.
LORD, teach me the way of your laws; I shall observe them with care.
Give me insight to observe your teaching, to keep it with all my heart.
Lead me in the path of your commands, for that is my delight.
Direct my heart toward your decrees and away from unjust gain.
Avert my eyes from what is worthless; by your way give me life.
For your servant fulfill your promise made to those who fear you.
Turn away from me the taunts I dread, for your edicts bring good.
See how I long for your precepts; in your justice give me life.
Let your love come to me, LORD, salvation in accord with your promise."

A Morning Prayer

"A Morning Prayer, by Saint Therese

O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.
O my God! I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in heaven for all Eternity.
