Prayer for the Absent

O God, whose fatherly care reacheth to the uttermost parts of the earth: We humbly pray graciously to behold and bless those whom we love, now absent from us. Defend them from all dangers of soul and body; and grant that both they and we, drawing nearer to you, may be bound together by your love in the communion of your Holy Spirit, and in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Psalm 29

Ascribe to the Lord, you gods, *

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his Name; *

worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters;
the God of glory thunders; *

the Lord is upon the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is a powerful voice; *

the voice of the Lord is a voice of splendor.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar trees; *

the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon;
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, *

and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord splits the flames of fire;
the voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; *

the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the oak trees writhe *

and strips the forests bare.
And in the temple of the Lord *

all are crying, “Glory!”
The Lord sits enthroned above the flood; *

the Lord sits enthroned as King for evermore.
The Lord shall give strength to his people; *

the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spi
