First Hour Prayers
In every moment direct me according to Your word, lest all lawlessness overpowers me. Rescue me from slanderous men, and guard me with Your commandments. Shine Your face upon Your servant and teach me Your statutes. Let my mouth be filled with Your praise O Lord so that I may sing of Your glory the whole day long.
