Centering Prayer

Saturday’s Meditation – Sirach 51:1,11-12

I give you thanks, O Lord and King,
   and praise you, O God my Saviour.

I will praise your name continually,
   and will sing hymns of thanksgiving.’
My prayer was heard,
   for you saved me from destruction
   and rescued me in time of trouble.
For this reason I thank you and praise you,
   and I bless the name of the Lord.
