The Lamb who was slain is worthy to receive strength and divinity,
wisdom and power and honor, alleluia.
(Rev 5)



Father, by the love of your Spirit,
may we who have experienced the grace of the Lord's resurrection rise to the newness of life in joy.
Amen.

Your Love and Your Grace

Take, O Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory,
my understanding and my will;
all that I have and possess.
You have given them to me; to you, O Lord, I restore them.
All things are yours: Dispose of them according to your will.
Give me your love and your grace; for this is enough for me.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

I will not leave you orphans, says the Lord.
I will come back to you, and your hearts will rejoice.
(Jn 14)



Lord Jesus, in the scriptures we hear that you will not leave us orphans and that you will come back and our hearts will rejoice.
By your gift of grace, may we feel the warmth of your Spirit in our lives,
so that we can truly know that you will not leave us orphans.
Amen.

So Jesus said to them, “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”
Mk 12


Lord, we tend to think that you wanted us to divide our lives.
We have the idea that some parts of our lives belong to earthly powers or leaders and other parts belong to you.
But ultimately all things belong to you.
We have received life, our time, talents, treasures from you, and you deserve our gratitude and loyalty.
Help us to remember that your will comes before all else.
Everything and everyone else comes after you.
Amen.

A Heart to Love Thee

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore thee,
a heart to delight in thee,
to follow and to enjoy thee,
for Christ's sake.

Ambrose of Milan (c. 339-97)

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.

The thoughts of his heart last through every generation,
that he will rescue them from death and feed them in time of famine.
(Ps 32)


Almighty Father, we are grateful for the many gifts of love that we have received from Jesus your Son.
We are mindful of the pain that your Son's heart lived during his life time.
We ask that you open our hearts to share in this life and to bless us with his love.
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.

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.

“My heart will rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful to me.”
Ps 13


Eternal Father, in praising you today we also honor your chosen servant, Mary of Nazareth.
She is your favored daughter, the mother of your Son and the spouse of your Holy Spirit.
No creature knows you or loves you more intimately than she.
Help us to be like her as disciples of your Divine Son. We pray through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

“One thing I ask of the Lord, only this do I seek:
to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.”
Ps 27


Lord, every time we come to your house you welcome us and draw us deeper into communion with you.
Help us to encounter you in our daily lives.
Then we will generously nourish and feed others with the energy and joy of the Eucharist.
Amen.

Praise God


Hallelujah. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in the firmament of His power.

Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to His abundant greatness.

Praise Him with the blast of the horn; praise Him with the psaltery and harp.

Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and the pipe.

Praise Him with the loud-sounding cymbals; praise Him with the clanging cymbals.

Let every thing that hath breath praise HaShem. Hallelujah.


Psalms 150: 1-6

God, our protector, keep us in mind; always give strength to your people.
For if we can be with you even one day, it is better than a thousand without you.
(Ps 83)



God our Father, your care extends beyond all boundaries of race and nation to dwell in the lives and hearts of all who follow your words.
May we grow in our love for all humankind and learn each day to accept those who have been hurt by prejudice and hatred.
May we reach out to those who have been hurt and reveal to them your loving and kind embrace.
Amen.

We ask all our prayers in Jesus' name.
Amen.

In Gratitude 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.

Morning Prayer

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 I have.
Let Your holy Angels be with me, so that the evil enemy will not gain power over me. Amen.

Martin Luther
