Transcript: Liturgy of the Hours: the daily public prayer of the Church- divided up into segments- that celebrates the mystery of Christ, which permeates and transfigures the time of each day (p. 266) Mostly prayed by priests and religious communities, Liturgy of the Hours (a.k.a. Divine Office) is the Church's official set of daily prayers. It is comprised mostly of psalms and hymns, but includes some readings and other prayers. Liturgy of the Hours is supposed to be prayed approximately every three hours. The Our Father and Hail Mary are also prayers that are clearly laid out for us in Scripture. In Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus gives us the prayer we now call the Our Father. The first half of the Hail Mary comes from the early parts of Luke's Gospel: the angel Gabriel's greeting (Lk 1:28) and Elizabeth's greeting (Lk 1:41-42). Psalms What are the Psalms? Who wrote them? To which Biblical literary genre do they belong? Use your textbook to define Liturgy of the Word, lectio divina, and Liturgy of the Hours. (Using the information in this prezi, be able to elaborate on these definitions.) Explain the steps of lectio divina. There are many different ways we can use the Bible to pray. Over the years, the Church has developed structured ways to help us use the Bible in prayer. Biblical Prayer Lectio Divina Liturgy of the Hours Lectio Divina is a form of prayer developed by Benedictine monks. It combines reading Scripture with meditative prayer. In Lectio Divina, a Scripture passage is read four times. The first time, you simply read the passage. The second time, you begin to meditate on one word or phrase that stuck out to you. During the third reading, you think about what God is asking you and you make a response to him. And in the final reading, you reflect on what happened throughout this whole prayer process. Our Father & Hail Mary Scripture and Prayer Summary Questions The books of Psalms is comprised of prayers written by King David. These prayers take the form of songs and poems. As part of the poetry genre, Psalms shares the emotional aspects of David's personal relationship with God as well as the Jewish people's connection with God. The Israelites used specific psalms for specific times in their lives and for particular religious rituals. Similarly, the Catholic Church uses the psalms in our worship by including a psalm at every Mass. Liturgy of the Word Each time we attend Mass, there is time set aside for us to hear Scripture. This part of the Mass is called the Liturgy of the Word. The Church has set up a daily schedule of Mass readings. If you were to attend Mass every day for three years, the readings you hear in the Liturgy of the Word would take you through most of the Bible. During the Liturgy of the Word, there are at least three readings: the first reading (from either the OT or NT), a psalm, and a Gospel reading. On Sundays and special feast days, a second reading is added.

Anxieties & concerns that distract us Make a commitment to pray at a scheduled time. GOD All day long I had no time To spread a word of cheer. No time to speak of Christ to friends, They'd laugh at me I'd fear. No time, no time, too much to do, That was my constant cry, No time to give to souls in need But at last the time the time to die. I went before the Lord, I came, I stood with downcast eyes. For in his hands God held a book; it was the book of life. God looked into his book and said "Your name I cannot find.

Transcript: The predominant view of the Bible is that it communicates to us what God expects of us, that it offers principals that make your life better, and that it is about God “in general”. Deuteronomy 4:2 2 You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God that I command you. Psalm 119:105 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Isaiah 40:8 8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 55:11 11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. John 5:39-40 39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. John 12:47-48 47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day. Romans 15:4 4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Galatians 3:8 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13 13 And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers. Hebrews 4:12 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. John 1:1-3 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In its own words, Scripture is breathed by God. It is living and active, accomplishing God’s purposes. It commands, instructs, encourages, teaches, reproofs, corrects, trains, judges, preaches, foresees, gives hope, and makes wise for salvation. And most importantly, it is about Jesus; all of it. Scripture Word 2 Timothy 3:15-17 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 6 functions of the Bible 1. Convict Sin 2. Correction and instruction 3. Spiritual Fruitfulness 4. Perseverance 5. Joy and delight 6. Ultimate Authority in doctrine and deed I would add that it creates faith within the hearer. 2 Peter 3:15-16 15 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, 16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.
