To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
(Ps. 50)


All-powerful and ever-living God, we come to you asking that you direct our lives with your love and bring us your peace.
For there are many times that we fail to recognize our need for your grace and do not go to you and ask for your forgiveness.
May we grow in this area and become stronger witnesses to your love for us.
Amen.

You are my God; I will give you praise,
O my God, I will extol you,
for you are my Savior.
(Ps. 118)


God our Father, we come before you in prayer this day with open hearts, ready to hear your words spoken in our lives.
We come before you ready to give you praise for the many blessings we have received.
May we always remember to give you time each day to express our gratitude and to bring before you all that lives in the depths of our hearts.
Amen.

O Lord, you have given everything its place in the world, and no one can make it otherwise.
For it is your creation, the heavens and the earth and the stars; you are the Lord of all.
(Esther 13)


Lord Jesus, we come to you this day in thanksgiving for the many ways we live in freedom.
For there are many times we do not always make the healthiest choices in life and we are in need of your healing and forgiving presence.
There are times when we do not take our responsibilities that go along with living in freedom seriously
and we are in need of your grace in our lives to strive to continue to live in truth and in freedom.
Amen.

Prayer for Inner Peace and Calm

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.

John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

Within your temple, we ponder your loving kindness, O God.
As your name, so also your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;
your right hand is filled with justice.
(Ps. 47)



God our Father, may we know of your forgiveness in our lives
and come before you asking for forgiveness when we have fallen from your presence.
Amen.

I will praise your name forever, my king and my God.
(Ps. 145)

As your Son suffered for our sins, may we be mindful of our need to ask forgiveness

Do not abandon me, Lord.
My God, do not go away from me, Lord, my Savior.
(Ps. 37)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the Psalm the cry and the plea that you do not abandon us.
May we, with each new day, grow closer to you and never be in situations where we feel you have abandoned us.
For in our times of need and pain, it can feel like you have left us.
May your grace always be enough for us.
Amen.

The Lord is my inheritance and my cup;
he alone will give me my reward.
The measuring line has marked a lovely place for me;
my inheritance is my great delight.
(Ps 16)


Lord Jesus, in the Psalm we hear that you alone will be our reward and that our inheritance is our great delight.
Help us, this day, to place our trust and hope in you.
For you are gentle and humble of heart and bring great joy into our lives.
May we grow to believe even stronger in your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Let my prayers come before you, Lord;
listen, and answer me.
(Ps. 87)


Lord Jesus, there are days that we feel the burdens and challenges that this life brings to us.
We ask that you help us become aware of how our prayers come before you like incense and rise up before you.
May we grow in our belief that you listen and hear our prayers and respond to us in love and kindness.
Amen.

If you are insulted for the name of Christ,
blessed are you, for the Spirit of God rests upon you.

May they be guided and inspired to remain faithful to the teachings of the Church.
Amen.

Do Not Lose Heart

Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though outwardly we are wasting away,
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles
are achieving for us an eternal glory
that far outweighs them all.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is eternal.

- 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

and to remain faithful to our yes in being witnesses to your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Prayer for Holy Rest

O Lord, support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes,
and the busy world lies hushed,
and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.
Then in thy mercy grant us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest, and peace at the last.
Amen.

May all the earth give you worship and praise,
and break into song to your name, O God, Most High.

and help us to share this peace with those whom we encounter in our daily lives.
Amen.

Jesus entered a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him to her home.
(Luke 10:38)


Lord Jesus, you left us an example of how to reach out and touch others.
Give us insight and courage and enable us to extend ourselves
and our love to those who are lonely and hurting.
Amen.

Come, let us worship the Lord.
Let us bow down in the presence of our maker,
for he is the Lord our God.
(Ps. 94)


God our Father, we hear in the Psalm to come and worship you and to bow down before you, for you are our God and Father.
In prayer this day, we come before you and bow down to our maker for we are in need of your blessings and graces.
We recognize the holiness of your presence and come before you with grateful hearts for your presence in our lives.
Amen.

God himself is my help.

May we grow in our belief and faith in you and may we remain faithful to your teachings.
As we walk this journey in life, may we always be eager to serve you in faith, hope and love.

The Lord said to Mary Magdalene:
Go and tell my brothers that I shall ascend to my Father and your Father,
to my God and to your God.
(Jn. 20)


God our Father, today we celebrate the feast of St. Mary Magdalene.
She witnessed in her life the power of your healing and forgiving presence.
There are times when we are in need of your healing and forgiving presence in our lives,
yet there are times when we find it difficult to come before you, for we have sinned.
May the example of Mary Magdalene give us the courage to come before you no matter what we have done
and ask for your forgiveness and experience your healing presence in our lives.
Amen.

Lord, your mercy is my hope,
my heart rejoices in your saving power.
I will sing to the Lord for his goodness to me.
(Ps. 12)


Almighty God, you are Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
we recognize the presence of your Son in our lives and desire to follow in his footsteps here on this earth.
Your Son bore witness to your presence in our world and gave us the gift of eternal life.
May all our actions and words lead us to receive this promise of eternal life,
where we will live with you for all eternity.
Amen.

Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.
(Lk 8)


Lord Jesus, Let us take time this day to pray for all parents,
as they try to teach their children by word and deed about your presence in their lives and about the values of living an honest and healthy life.
May parents remain true to their responsibilities to their children and may they come to you in times of joy and pain.
Amen.

I Have All in God

God of your goodness, give me yourself, for you are sufficient for me...
If I were to ask anything less I should always be in want,
for in you alone do I have all.

Julian of Norwich

Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls.
(James 1)


Lord Jesus, we ask that you continue to guide and inspire those who lead us in our Church.
May their message be heard and may our young people be inspired to grow in their love for God, for self and for others.
May our youth live wholesome experiences in our Church and may these experiences be grace-filled times in their lives.
Amen
