Oracle of the Psalms

Holding your prayer book in your hands open to the psalter, concentrate on our question while praying, with closed eyes:

Holy St. Cyprian, I seek Your counsel by Your knowledge and by Your power I seek strength and I ask You from Your immense favor, for verily You are able while I am not and verily You know while I do not and You are the Knower of the unseen.

With your eyes still closed, listen and feel for any inner promptings to turn pages, and subsequently, the impetus to stop turning them. With your eyes still closed, move your right index finger slowly across both open pages until you feel moved to stop.

Open your eyes, read the passage(s) upon which your finger has stopped. Contemplate for a time on how this passage relates to your situation.
