Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Lectio Divina – Domine, Clamavi ad Te

August 11th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

I present this for your prayerful consideration today. I know it’s certainly one of the most worn pages in my various prayer books/breviaries/etc.

Psalm 141 –

I have cried to you, O Lord, hear me: hearken to my voice, when I cry to you. 2 Let my prayer be directed as incense in your sight; the lifting up of my hands, as evening sacrifice. 3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: and a door round about my lips. 4 Incline not my heart to evil words; to make excuses in sins. With men that work iniquity: and I will not communicate with the choicest of them. 5 The just man shall correct me in mercy, and shall reprove me: but let not the oil of the sinner fatten my head. For my prayer shall still be against the things with which they are well pleased. 6. Their judges falling upon the rock have been swallowed up. They shall hear my words, for they have prevailed: 7 As when the thickness of the earth is broken up upon the ground: Our bones are scattered by the side of hell. 8 But to you, O Lord, Lord, are my eyes: in you have I put my trust, take not away my soul. 9 Keep me from the snare, which they have laid for me, and from the stumbling blocks of them that work iniquity. 10 The wicked shall fall in his net: I am alone until I pass.
