If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples,
and you will know the truth,
says the Lord.
(Jn. 8)


Almighty Father, your Son Jesus Christ revealed for us your presence in the world.
May we always recognize your presence in all that we do and may we share the gift of your presence with all whom we encounter.
Amen.

O God, let all the nations praise you.

Lord God, we come before you with all of our longings to experience your presence in life.
From this experience,
may we all give witness to the nations of your Risen Son and may all praise you for ever and ever.
Amen.

Christ had to suffer and to rise from the dead,
and so enter into his glory.
(Lk. 24)


Almighty God, by raising Christ your Son from the dead you revealed the promise of eternal life.
May we never doubt that you will fulfill the promises that you have made.
Amen.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I will begin this day.
I thank you, Lord, for having preserved me during the night.
I will do my best to make all I do today pleasing to You and in accordance with Your will.

Prayer for God's Help in Daily Actions

Our Father, may everything I do begin with Your
Inspiration,
continue with Your Help,
and reach perfection under Your Guidance.
With Your loving care guide me in my daily actions.
Help me to persevere with love and sincerity.
Teach me to judge wisely the things of earth
and to love the things of Heaven.
Keep me in Your presence
and never let me be separated from You.
Your Spirit made me Your child,
confident to call You Father.
Make Your Love the foundation of my life.
Teach me to long for Heaven.
May its promise and hope guide my way on earth
until I reach eternal life with You.

Thanks for Family and Friends

Blessed are You, loving Father,
For all your gifts to us.
Blessed are You for giving us family and friends
To be with us in times of joy and sorrow,
To help us in days of need,
And to rejoice with us in moments of celebration..

Father,
We praise You for Your Son Jesus,
Who knew the happiness of family and friends,
And in the love of Your Holy Spirit.
Blessed are you for ever and ever.

Amen.

Prayer for the Sick

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake,
or watch, or weep tonight,
and give your angels charge over those who sleep.

Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest your weary ones.
Bless your dying ones.
Soothe your suffering ones.
Pity your afflicted ones.
Shield your joyous ones.
And for all your love's sake. Amen.

Saint Augustine

My Heavenly Father, I thank You, through Jesus Christ,
Your beloved Son, that You kept me safe from all evil and danger last night.
Save me, I pray, today as well, from every evil and sin,
so that all I do and the way that I live will please you.
I put myself in your care, body and soul and all that...

Martin Luther

I Cleanse My Soul

I cleanse my soul in the dews of spring,
Light of mind's refreshing dew
Love of heart's renewing dew,
Life being's restoring dew,
Cleanse and recreate my soul this night.

May the souls of all beings be
Peacefully preserved
From fall of night
Till day's dear light.

Prayer for a Summer Day

Long warm days...
The pace of life slows...
A time for picnics and rest in the shade...

Lord,
help me to rest a while in the cooling shade of your presence.
Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people.
Amen.

The Lord led his people out of slavery.
He drowned their enemies in the Sea. (Ps 77)


God our Father, you gave us the Easter mystery as our covenant of reconciliation.
May the new birth we celebrate show its effects in the way we live.
Amen.

Your people praised your great victory, O Lord.
Wisdom opened the mouth that was dumb, and made the tongues of babies speak.
(Wis 10)


Father, you gather the nations to praise your name.
May all who are reborn in baptism be one in faith and love.
Amen.

God is king of all the earth.
( Ps. 47)


Lord God, we come before you this day asking for your assistance in living out the day to day events in our lives.
It is not always easy for us to remain positive and cheerful when there is so much negativity that surrounds us.
With your grace, may we respond to the tasks that are placed before us with joy and in peace.
We also pray that our young people will answer the call to serve within the Church.
Amen.

The Blessing of Unanswered Prayers

I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I had asked for,
but eveything that I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered;
I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

- Unknown Confederate soldier

The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Who shall frighten me?
The Lord is the defender of my life.
Who shall make me tremble?
(Ps 26)


God of wisdom and love,
you are the source of all that is good,
we ask that you send us your Spirit to guide and teach us of your truth in our journey in life.
Amen.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Lord, hear my voice when I call to you. You are my help;
do not cast me off, do not desert me, my Savior God.
(Ps 26)


Lord Jesus, we come before you confident that you hear our voices and will respond to our cry for help.
We realize that without you we are in great danger of falling into unhealthy situations in our lives that will pull us away from you.
We ask for the grace to grow in our trust,
confidence and belief in your unconditional love for us in our lives.
Amen.

Save us, Lord, who share in your life,
and give us your blessing; be our shepherd forever.
(Ps 27)

We ask that you grant us an unfailing respect for your name and keep us always in your love.
Amen.

When you walked at the head of your people,
O God, and lived with them on their journey,
the earth shook at your presence,
and the skies poured forth their rain, alleluia!
(Ps. 67)


Lord Jesus, you assured your disciples that even though you had to leave them you would always be with them.
Help us to feel your presence in our lives and reassure us that you are always with us,
as we walk this journey of faith on earth.
Amen.

The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, and to proclaim liberty to captives.
(Lk 4:18)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the scriptures to bring glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives.
We strive to be so attentive to those around us in need of hearing your words and of being freed in order to live your examples in their lives.
Help us to be attentive to their needs and to respond to them with openness and in love.
Amen.

The Lord fed his people with the finest wheat and honey; their hunger was satisfied.
(Ps 80)


Lord Jesus Christ, we worship you living among us in the sacrament of your body and blood.
May we offer to our Father in Heaven a solemn pledge of undivided love.
May we offer to our brothers and sisters a life poured out in loving service of that kingdom where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

The Spirit of truth will testify to me,
says the Lord, and you also will testify.
(Jn 15)


God of mercy, may our celebration of your Son's resurrection help us to experience its effect in our lives.
May we be more aware of the many graces that are present in our relationship with you and may we share your presence with those who cross our path in life.
Amen.

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, we do ponder your loving kindness and we pray that you continue to guide and inspire us to be faithful followers of your Son.
We desire so much that your presence be known throughout the world, that we want to proclaim from the mountain tops that Jesus Christ is Lord.
May we remain faithful to this desire and find creative ways to share this news.
Amen.
