Prayer for Those Whose Loved Ones Are Missing


Loving God, the hope and protector of all humankind; bless those whose loved ones are missing.
The agony of not knowing whether someone is living or dead is a daily torture.
The uncertainty of lifeís future relationships hangs in limbo. Hope rides a roller coaster. Yet each day must be lived.
Give unto your people the blessing of your grace that they may face each day with courage and hope.
Guard their families from further danger and harm and hold them in the blessing of your love.

Amen.

Lead Me to Peace

Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill my heart, my world, my universe.
Amen.

Receive the word of God,
not as the word of men,
but as it truly is,
the word of God.
(1Thess2)


God our Creator, open our eyes to see your hand at work in the splendor of creation, in the beauty of human life.
By your touch the world is holy.
May we grow in our appreciation of the beauty of your creation that surrounds us every moment of our lives.
Amen.

God, come to my help.
Lord, quickly give me assistance.
You are the one who helps me and sets me free:
Lord, do not be long in coming.
(Ps 69)


Almighty God, we come before you this day asking for your guidance.
There are many events in our lives that try our patience and sometimes we find it difficult to follow you in complete trust.
During these times, we are in need of your healing presence,
yet we sometimes find it difficult to ask for your guidance and forgiveness.
Help us to come to you no matter what we may be living and experiencing in our lives.

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)


Almighty God, ever-loving Father, your care extends beyond the boundaries of race and nation to the hearts of all who live.
May the walls, which prejudice raises between us, crumble beneath the shadow of your outstretched arm.

Amen.

Prayer for Meaningful Work

Loving God, you made us co-creators in the process of your creation, blessing us with wisdom, reason, creativity, and skill.
Bless all who seek meaningful employment that they may provide for the well-being of their families.
Let those who have more than they need for life's necessities be moved to use their wealth to create new opportunities for others.
Let those who have skills be open to sharing the riches of their knowledge with those who seek the opportunity to learn.
Let us all learn from one another, for you have blessed every human being with a gift for the benefit of the common good.
And thereby enable us by the power of your Holy Spirit to build up the body of Christ on this earth that your name be proclaimed and blessed through the good work of all; in Christís name we pray.

Amen.

Do Not Lose Heart

Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though outwardly we are wasting away,
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles
are achieving for us an eternal glory
that far outweighs them all.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is eternal.


- 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Listen, Lord, and answer me.
Save your servant who trusts in you.
I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, O Lord.
(Ps 85)


Lord our God, all truth is from you, and you alone bring oneness of heart.
Give your people the joy of hearing your word in every sound and of longing for your presence more than for life itself.
May all the attractions of a changing world serve only to bring us the peace of your kingdom which this world does not give.

Amen.

For Everyday Blessings

Dear God,
Open my eyes to the beauty of this day.
The yellow of an egg yolk in a blue bowl.
The scent of bacon frying in the pan.
The soft caress of the morning breeze.
The sound of children at play.
Awaken my senses.
Let me see, hear, and feel the beauty around me.
And be aware of the presence of the Great Artist in my everyday world.

- William Webber

Spouses' Prayer

Lord Jesus,
grant that I and my spouse may have a true
and understanding love for each other.
Grant that we may both
be filled with faith and trust.
Give us the grace to live
with each other in peace and harmony.
May we always bear with one another's weaknesses
and grow from each other's strengths.
help us to forgive one another's failings
and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness
and the spirit of placing the well-being
of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together
grow and mature with each passing year.
Bring us both ever closer to You
through our love for each other.
Let our love grow to perfection.

Amen.

The Path to Eternal Life

Oh Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love,
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it is in dying that we are born
To eternal life.

St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, you are just, and the judgments you make are right. S
how mercy when you judge me, your servant.
(Ps 118)


Lord our God, in you justice and mercy meet.
With unparalleled love you have saved us from death and drawn us into the circle of your life.
Open our eyes to the wonders this life sets before us,
that we may serve you free from fear and address you as God our Father.

Amen.

I am the Savior of all people, says the Lord.
Whatever their troubles, I will answer their cry,
and I will always be their Lord.


Lord Jesus, we come before you this day mindful of all who work in our world.
Many people strive to earn a just salary,
to provide for their families and to share their resources with others who are in need.
As people across the country take time this day to celebrate their joy in having a job we give you thanks for our jobs,
our ministries and for the organizations who help those unemployed to find jobs.

Amen.

Give peace, Lord, to those who wait for you and your prophets will proclaim you as you deserve.
Hear the prayers of your servant and of your people Israel.
(Sir 36)


Lord Jesus, we come to you this day in our hour of need.
Help us to be able to verbalize to you what lives in the depths of our hearts and open our ears to hear your response when we cry out to you for help.

Amen.

A great prophet has risen in our midst and God has visited his people.
(Lk 7)


God our Father, we come to you this day trying to be good examples of what it means to share your gifts for the glory of God.
May we learn what it means to live in service to our brothers and sisters.
We give you thanks for the gifts you have given us and may we always use them to bring others to you.

Amen.

To the Lord belongs the earth and all that fills it.

As we journey in this life, we are reminded of how much we are in need of your mercy and forgiveness.
Help us to turn towards you when we have sinned and ask for your forgiveness and for your healing presence in our lives.

O Lord, you have given everything its place in the world, and no one can make it otherwise. For it is your creation, the heavens and the earth and the stars: you are the Lord of all.

God our Creator, we come before you this day in praise and worship for the marvels of your creation.
All of nature sings of your glory.
May we always come before you in prayer,
mindful of your greatness and to give praise and glory to the creation which you have blessed us with in our lives.

Amen.

If you, O Lord, laid bare our guilt, who could endure it?
But you are forgiving, God of Israel.
(Ps 129)


Father in Heaven, your hand guides our every move.
We come before you this day in need of your guidance in our lives and ask you to give us the graces we need to live according to your word.
As we walk this journey in life, may we always turn to you for guidance and may we always recognize your hand guiding us along the path.

Amen.

Surround Me With Your Light

Surround me with your light, Jesus, and penetrate the very depths of my being with that light.
Let there remain no areas of darkness in me or in my family members, but transform our whole being with the healing light of your love.
Open me completely to receive your love, Jesus.
Thank you for being our family healer and my personal healer.

Lead me in your justice, Lord.
(Ps 5)

God of mercy and hope, we come to you this day to remember those who have devoted thier lives to the service of those who were in need of water, food and medicine.
This day, let us pray for all who are in situations where they need assistance with food and medicine.
Let us remember those who volunteer to help in food pantries and in health clinics throughout the world. May they know of your mercy and hope in their lives.

Amen.

Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord.
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek always the face of the Lord.
(Ps 104)


Praised be you, God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
There is no power for good which does not come from your covenant,
and no promise to hope in, that your love has not offered.
Strengthen our faith to accept your covenant and give us the love to carry out your command.

Amen.
