The Spirit of God is upon me; he has anointed me.
He sent me to bring good news to the poor, and to heal the broken-hearted.
(Lk 4)


Lord Jesus, we hear your words this day of bringing good news to the poor and to heal the broken-hearted.
We are in such need of your presence in our world.
There are so many people who desire to hear your words and to be healed of their sadness and pain.
May we be instruments of your healing presence and bring good news to those whom we meet each day.
Amen.

In my justice I shall see your face, O Lord;
when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
(Ps 16)


God our Father, we come before you this day eager to have the promise of seeing you face to face come true for us in our lives.
We live in a time where there is so much fear and mistrust, that at times we allow this to roll over into our relationship with you.
May we grow stronger in our belief that one day we will see you face to face and that our joy will be full.
Amen.

We are his people, the sheep of his flock.
(Ps 100)


Lord Jesus, you gave us the example of what a Good Shepherd is all about.
When a sheep is lost, you leave and go and find the one lost.
We know that when the shepherd speaks the sheep can hear his voice.
We hear in the psalm that we are your people, the sheep of your flock.
May we always be open to hearing your voice and to following you in our journey.
When we are lost, may we be found and brought back to the fold.
Amen.

I will be a witness to you in the world, O Lord.
I will spread the knowledge of your name among my brothers, alleluia!
(Ps. 17)


Lord Jesus, as we celebrate your Son's resurrection, so may we rejoice with all the saints when he returns in glory.
For we are reminded through our baptism that we have received the Light of Christ and that we are called to share this light with others.
Amen.

Lord, be true to your covenant, forget not the life of your poor ones forever.
Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; do not ignore the shouts of your enemies.
(Ps 73)


God our Father, we recognize the gift it is to call you Father.
We, your children, come before you this day in a spirit of gratitude for the many ways you have blessed our lives.
May we forever be grateful for the gift of your presence and may we always come to you,
to celebrate the joys in life and to ask for your guidance and forgiveness.
Amen.

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.

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.

To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
(Ps.50)


All-powerful and ever-living God, we come to you asking that you direct our lives with your love and bring us your peace.
For there are many times that we fail to recognize our need for your grace and do not go to you and ask for your forgiveness.
May we grow in this area and become stronger witnesses to your love for us.
Amen.

Prayer for the Human Family

Mother and Father of the world,
we pray for the whole human family.

Many nations are torn by war.
Grant them peace
and healing of their divisions.

Many communities are filled with crime.
Grant them deliverance from fear
and the hope of renewal.

Many families are divided by hate.
Grant them unity
and the blessing of love.

Many children are abandoned and afraid.
Grant them someone who loves them
and the promise of a future.
Amen.

- Vienna Cobb Anderson

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, may we know of your forgiveness in our lives and come before you asking for forgiveness when we have fallen from your presence.
Amen.

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.

If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of God rests upon you.
(1Peter 4)


Lord Jesus, let us this day, pray for all who minister in your name and who have responsibilities in ecclesiastical affairs at this time in our history.
May they be guided and inspired to remain faithful to the teachings of the Church.
Amen.
