Listen, Lord, and answer me.
Save your servant who trusts in you.
I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, O Lord.
(Ps 85)


Lord Jesus, we believe that when we call on you our prayers will be heard and answered.
We count on your presence in our life and rely on your grace to give us strength to continue to be carriers of hope and joy to those whom we encounter on our journey.
Amen.

Save us, Lord, who share in your life,
and give us your blessing;
be our shepherd forever.

Lord our God, we rejoice to call you friend.
We are in need of your saving presence in our lives and we hope that you will be our shepherd forever.
We desire to live in places that are safe and to rely on your strength when times are painful and difficult.
Amen.

Lord, you are just, and the judgments you make are right.
Show mercy when you judge me, your servant.
(Ps 118)


God our Father, we desire so much to live in a spirit of justice and mercy.
You show us mercy in our lives and give us the freedom to live according to your laws and attitudes which your Son revealed and witnessed to while He was on earth.
May we grow in our love for you.
Amen

Give peace, Lord, to those who wait for you and your prophets will proclaim you as you deserve.
Hear the prayers of your servant and of your people Israel.
(Ser 36)


Lord our God, you guide us and give us examples of ways which help us to serve you with all our hearts and experience your forgiveness.
May we always know your love for us and may we respond with an open heart to your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Gratitude for Happy Hearts

We thank Thee Lord, for happy hearts,
For rain and sunny weather.
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food,
And that we are together.

In Gratitude for the Labors of Others

A hundred times a day I remind myself
that my inner and outer life depends
on the labors of other men,
living and dead,
and that I must exert myself in order
to give in the measure as I have received
and am still receiving.

Albert Einstein

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
(Ps 89)


God our Creator, you have called us out of darkness to walk as children of the light.
May we live according to your words and by the example of your Son Jesus, who died for our sins.
May we always know your presence in our lives and live in a state of thanksgiving for your graces that you give to us in our journey in life.
Amen.

Prayer to Overcome Sin

O everlasting God, let the light of Thine eternity now fall upon my passing days.
O holy God, let the light of thy perfect righteousness fall upon my sinful ways.
O most merciful God, let the light of Thy love pierce to the most secret corners of my heart and overcome the darkness of sin within me.

John Baillie

I trust in the Lord; my soul trusts in his word.
(Ps 130)


Lord Jesus, you gave us the best example of trust when you walked the road to Calvary and put your life into your Father's hands.
May we receive the grace to give totally of our whole being to God and trust in His plan for our entire life.
Amen

Prayer for Trust in Jesus

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

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,
we are in need of your grace in our lives to strive to continue to live in truth and in freedom.
Amen.

Give Us Grateful Hearts

Give us grateful hearts, O Father,
for all thy mercies,
and make us mindful of the needs of others;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Just for Today

Lord, for tomorrow and its needs,
I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin
Just for today.

Let me both diligently work,
And duly pray.
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today.

Let me be slow to do my will,
Prompt to obey;
Help me to sacrifice myself
Just for today.

And if today my tide of life
Should ebb away,
Give me thy Sacraments divine,
Sweet Lord today.

So for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray,
But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
Just for today.

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.

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.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Amen.

Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

"Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth;
you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom."


Father, Jesus calls children to himself and offers them as models of innocence and joy.
Through them, the Kingdom shines brightly in our world.
Restore to adults in our family the joy and wonder of youthful faith and exuberance.
Amen.

Prayer for Protection

The Light of God surrounds me;
The Love of God enfolds me;
The Power of God protects me;
The Presence of God watches over me;
Wherever I am, God is,
And all is well.

Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.

St. Francis of Assisi

May all the earth give you worship and praise,
and break into song to your name,
O God, Most High.
(Ps 65)


God our Father, we pray that you will hear our prayer and lead us to experience peace and joy in our lives.
In this time of fear in our world,
may you lead us to the way of peace and help us to share this peace with those whom we encounter in our daily lives.
Amen

Prayer for Difficult Times

Your word is a lantern to my feet
and a light upon my path.

I have sworn and am determined
to keep your righteous judgments.

I am deeply troubled;
preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.

Accept, O Lord, the willing tribute of my lips,
and teach me your judgments.

My life is always in my hand,
yet I do not forget your law.

The wicked have set a trap for me,
but I have not strayed from your commandments.

Your decrees are my inheritance for ever;
truly, they are the joy of my heart.

I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes
for ever and to the end.


Psalms 119: 105-112
