Happy are they who have kept the word with a generous heart,
and yield a harvest through perseverance.
(Luke 8:15)


Lord, you will show us the path of life.
In this path of life, you guide us to yield a harvest through perseverance.
Help us, we beg of you, to give us the strength to keep your word with a generous heart,
and thus enable us to serve you with our whole heart.
Amen.

God, take pity on me!
My enemies are crushing me;
all day long they wage war on me.
(Ps. 55)


Lord God, we are mindful that we have sinned and are in need of your forgiveness and mercy.
Please take pity on us for we desire to do your will in our lives.
Yet there are those around us who try to make us fall thus we become weak in our response, hence fall into danger and even sin.
Help us to become stronger and to defend our faith and our decisions in life.
Amen.

Mindful of the many ways we need to persevere in this journey of faith that we walk each day.
May we always respond to you with a heart that is overflowing with generosity
and love for you and for all those whom we encounter in this life.
Amen.

The Lord will guard us,
as a shepherd guards his flock.
(Jeremiah 31)


Lord Jesus, you have given us the example of a shepherd guarding his flock in the fields.
May we come to know you more deeply as the Shepherd who protects us from all harm, if only we can place our lives totally into your care.
Amen.

If today you hear his voice,
harden not your hearts.
(Ps. 95)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the psalm for us not to harden our hearts,
yet there are times when it is so much easier for us to turn away and pretend that we did not hear you.
We come before you this day asking for forgiveness for those times when we denied hearing your voice and did not act to keep our hearts from becoming hard.
Touch our hearts to make them bear witness to your love in our lives.
Amen.

Jesus, Be Our Companion

Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past;
be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope,
that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread.
Grant this for the sake of your love.
Amen.

Instruct me in the way of your rules,
and I will reflect on all your wonders.

Instruct and guide us in your wisdom to follow your examples.

At the name of Jesus every knee must bend,
in heaven, on earth, and under the earth;
Christ became obedient for us even to death,
dying on the cross.
(Phil. 2)


God our Father, we kneel before you in prayer mindful of the many ways that you bless us on our journey.
May we be ever mindful of the love you have for us and may we share this love with others.
Amen.

I will rise and go to my father and tell him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. (Lk. 15:18)

Lord Jesus, we hear in the Gospel about the son who asked forgiveness from his father
and the father was filled with joy that his son returned to him.
You give us this example so that we will return to you and that our lives will be filled with joy.
However, it is not always easy for us to admit that we have done wrong and to ask forgiveness.
Help us to grow in our humility and to return to you asking forgiveness
and to feel your open arms ready to embrace us as the father embraced his son upon his return home.
Amen.

Your word O Lord, is truth; make us holy in the truth.
(John 17)


Lord, we come before you as humble followers seeking the truth in life.
Often times, our human weaknesses cause us to fall and lose sight of your truth.
Help us to know your reconciling presence in our lives and your deep desire for us to live in your truth.
Amen.

God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.

Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord,
and my Father will love him and we will come to him.
(Jn. 14)


Ever-living God, we come before you with joyful hearts.
We desire to share this joy with those that we encounter in our everyday lives.
Yet there are times when we face obstacles that prohibit us from sharing this joy.
Help us to overcome these obstacles and to share this joy.
Amen.

I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
No one comes to the Father except through me.
(Jn. 14)


Lord Jesus, you revealed to your disciples not to let their hearts be troubled,
to have faith in God and to have faith in you.
There are times in our lives when our hearts are troubled.
Help us to believe that you will show us the way,
the truth and the life as we live moments of doubt.
Amen.
