“If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.” MT 19: 21


“Lord Jesus Christ, take all my freedom, my memory, my understanding, and my will.
All that I have and cherish you have given me.
I surrender it all to be guided by your will. Your grace and your love are wealth enough for me.
Give me these, Lord Jesus, and I ask for nothing more.
Amen.

“To be near God is my happiness, to place my hope in God the Lord.” Psalm 73: 28


“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 hardship as a pathway to peace.
Taking as Jesus 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.”

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

"Sing to the Lord a new song of praise in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in their maker, let the children of Zion rejoice in their king." (Ps 149:1-20)

We come to you singing praise God! My Jesus, today help us to praise You as we rejoice in our king!
We ask that you help us to spread the good news to those we come in contact with today!
Amen

"My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves." (Lk 19:46)

My Lord, you provided for us a temple made of your very being.
Yet many of us have disrepected your great gift.
Today help us to give your gift of peace and love to at least one other person we meet.
Amen.

"My kingdom does not belong to this world." (Jn 18:36)

We are not of this world, but we must live in this world.
We ask that you guide us every day to always take the road through the narrow gate.

Lord's Prayer for the Military Wife


Lord, Grant me the greatness of heart to see,
the difference in duty and his love for me.
Give me the understanding to know,
That when duty calls he must go.
Give me a task to do each day,
to fill the time when he is away,
And Lord, when duty is in the field,
Please protect him and be his shield.

"The Lord has made his salvation known: in the site of the nations he has revealed his justice. He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel." (Ps 98:2-3)

The Lord has remembered us from all time. He knew us before our birth and created us and all that we know.
In great gratitude do we celebrate this day in a thanksgiving of joy.
Amen.

"And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand." (Lk 21:28)


Dear Lord our redemption is always at hand; in your hands.
We pray today and every day that we may honor You and
be your presence on earth to those we encounter today and every day.
Amen.

"Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." (Mt 4:19)

Dear Jesus, today we are taught to put down our work and start on a journey to save souls in Your name!
Help us to be fishers of souls bringing them to your glorious kingdom in heaven.

Jesus said to his disciples: "Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life.” Luke 21:34

Lord, the routine of daily life and the distractions of little pleasures can all distract me from focusing on You and Your will.
Help me to stay awake and alert to You!
Amen.

In verdant pastures he gives me repose; beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.” Psalm 23:1-3

But first, I must let You lead me.
Open my mind and my heart to You.

“Trust in the LORD forever! For the LORD is an eternal Rock.
He humbles those in high places, and the lofty city He brings down;
He tumbles it to the ground, levels it with the dust. It is trampled underfoot by the needy, by the footsteps of the poor.” Isaiah 26:4-6


Lord, You want us to treat one another as sisters and brothers.
That means that I must think of all people as equally deserving of Your and my love.
Help me to see others as You do, not as society and human respect tell me.
Amen.

“On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; and out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see.
The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD, and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
For the tyrant will be no more and the arrogant will have gone.” Isaiah 29:18-20


Lord, You call us to Your Kingdom.
We look forward to Your coming.
Open our ears, eyes, and hearts so that we may recognize You among us.
Amen.

Day by Day



Day by day, dear Lord of you
Three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,
Day by day.
Amen.

The Lord's Prayer


Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation.
But deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Prayer for Young People

God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world:
Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals.
Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start.
Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

The Lord is kind and merciful; slow to anger and rich in compassion. (Ps 45)

Lord Jesus, in these days that we are living, there is much sadness and fear in our world.
Help us to turn towards you for strength and courage to bear the tragedies and sorrows that we are facing.
Help us to grow in trust that we will know of your presence in our lives and in the world.
Amen.

Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths; all humankind shall see the salvation of God. (Lk 3)

Lord, we come before you this day in our hope of loving you more each and every day.
As we prepare our hearts and our lives to celebrate your birth,
may we be blessed with hearts that are open to celebrate the gift of your life and with lives that will truly know your love for us.
Amen.

Brothers and sisters: rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again: rejoice! Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near.” Philippians 4: 4-5


We rejoice at the nearness of the Lord who would deem us worthy to welcome Him into our world,
into our homes, into our families and into our very hearts. We say it again, Rejoice, for the Lord is very near!
Let your kindness be known by all in this holy season.
Lord, with the help of your Spirit, we pray, “Come, Lord Jesus!
Amen.

until we are reunited in your presence on the last day.
