Prayers before Morning and Evening Prayer

By custom and statute the Augustinians of the Immaculate Heart of Mary pray the Divine Office (Morning and Evening prayer) daily. These prayers are said before the beginning of Morning and Evening prayer.

When not in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament:

Direct, O Lord, all our actions,
by your holy inspiration.
Carry them on by your gracious assistance,
so that every prayer and good work of ours
may always begin from you and by you be happily ended.
Through Christ, Our Lord, AMEN.

When in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament:

O Sacrament of Love,
Sign of our unity, bond of our fraternity,
All who long for life have here its very source!
Let them come here and believe,
Unite with you and live!
