God is the strength of his people.
In him, we his chosen live in safety.
Save us, Lord, who share in your life, and give us your blessing;
be our shepherd for ever.
(Ps. 27)


God our Father, you give us the model of what a shepherd is all about in how to tend to the flock.
It is difficult to be the shepherd in keeping track of the flock, yet you gave witness to going after the lost sheep.
Give us the strength and courage to seek out those who are lost and bring them back to the fold with gentleness and forgiveness.

Amen.

O look at me and be merciful, for I am wretched and alone.
See my hardship and my poverty, and pardon all my sins.
(Ps. 24)


Lord Jesus, when you walked this earth you showed people the way to reconciliation and forgiveness.
We come before you this day mindful of our sinfulness and recognizing our need for your forgiveness and grace in our lives.
May we never be afraid to ask for your pardon and forgiveness and may we always experience your love for us.

Amen.

Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.
(Acts 16)


Lord Jesus, you have told us over and over again that you hear our every word.
Open our hearts so that we may hear your every word and that we may live according to your words.
May we be free of distractions so that we may better understand the messages and lessons you want us to hear and to live by.
Amen.

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)


God our Father, we rejoice in the faith that draws us together,
aware that selfishness can drive us apart.
Let your encouragement be our constant strength.
Keep us one in the love that has sealed our lives,
help us to live as one family the gospel we profess.

Amen.

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


God our Father, you have shown us the path of life.
May your love for us be a sign of your unending desire for us to stay focused on the path that you have chosen for us to follow.
You go before us on this pilgrimage, anticipating our needs and preventing us from falling.
May we be ever grateful for your guidance as we walk this journey in life.
Amen.

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


Lord Jesus, we desire to hear your voice in our lives.
However, there are many distractions that can make it difficult at times for us to hear your voice.
We strive to clear the noise and confusion that surround us,
yet at times, we fall short of achieving this task.
We are in need of your help to make clear the path that leads us to hear your voice.
Amen.

So that we may help our children to love You.

For ever and ever.

Amen.

My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
I know them, and they follow me.
(Jn. 10)


Lord Jesus, you gave us a perfect example of what a shepherd needs to do in order to keep the sheep following the shepherd.
We know, from this example, that the sheep hear your voice and that you know each one.
May our experience of following you become a living witness of how a shepherd tends to his flock.
May we always follow you with our whole heart and may we recognize that you will never forget us.
Amen.

Prayer for the Homeless

O God, as Naomi and Ruth journeyed from one land to another seeking a home,
we ask your blessing upon all who are homeless in this world.
You promised to your chosen people a land flowing with milk and honey;
so inspire us to desire the accomplishment of your will that we may work for the settlement of those who are homeless in a place of peace, protection, and nurture, flowing with opportunity, blessing, and hope.
Amen.

Prayer for Police Officers

Almighty God we pray to you
In heaven up above
Watch over our dear police officers
And protect them with your love.

Please guide them as they keep us
safe both day and night
And hold them firmly in your care
should danger come their way.

Give them true strength and courage
As they serve til duty's end
And one more thing to ask dear Lord
Protect their family and their friends.
Amen.

All you who fear God, both the great and the small, give praise to him!
For his salvation and strength have come, the power of Christ.


Father, you restored your people to eternal life by raising Christ your Son from death.
Make our faith be strong and our hope sure.
May we never doubt that you will fulfill the promises you have made.
Amen.

I call upon you, God, for you will answer me;
bend your ear and hear my prayer.
Guard me as the pupil of your eye;
hide me in the shade of your wings.
(Ps. 16)


Lord our God, you guard us under the shadow of your wings and search into the depths of our hearts.
Help us to learn to turn toward you in times of sorrow and in times of joy.
May we always know that you are here for us in our journey in life.
When we loose sight of your presence in our lives,
may we be able to seek you with our hearts and rest once again in your loving embrace.
Amen.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord. He is their strength in time of need. (Ps. 36)

We hear in the psalm that you are our strength in time of need.
We are living in a time where we are in need of your strength to remain faithful to following in your footsteps.
Help us to grow in our care and concern for each other and in turn to trust in your presence in our life.
Amen.

God himself is my help.
The Lord upholds my life.
I will offer you a willing sacrifice;
I will praise your name, O Lord, for its goodness.
(Ps. 53)


God our Father, we want to serve you in faith, hope and love.
Yet, at times, we fail because of our own human pride and stubbornness in wanting to do things 'our way' that we forget to keep our focus on you.
Keep us watchful in prayer and true to your teachings so that we may serve you in faith, hope and love.
Amen.

God is in his holy dwelling;
he will give a home to the lonely,
he gives power and strength to his people.
(Ps. 67)


God our Father, open our eyes to see your hand at work in the splendor of creation, in the beauty of human life.
Touched by your hand our world is holy.
Help us to cherish the gifts that surround us,
to share your blessings with our brothers and sisters,
and to experience the joy of life in your presence.
Amen.

We are in need of your guidance as we try to live faithful lives in loving service to you.
May we always turn to you when we are in need of direction and may we always proclaim your word in our lives.

Fill us with your Spirit so that we may know your true will for us.

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, may our love for you know no boundaries and may our love for you tear down the walls of prejudice that sometimes can keep us from being truly loving persons with all whom we encounter each day.
May our love for you grow as we keep our focus on you.
Amen.

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


Lord Jesus, when you were on this earth, you gave us many examples to show your forgiving presence in our lives.
By this example may we come to know you in the sacrament of reconciliation and participate in the many opportunities to receive your grace.
Strengthen us on this path of life.
Amen.

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest, says the Lord.
(Matt. 11)


Lord Jesus, your words are consoling to us who have heavy burdens to carry in life.
Sometimes our burdens are related to the workplace, in our families and in our relationships with those around us.
As we carry our burdens, may we place them in your hands and ask you to help us ease the pain in our lives.
Amen.

I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, O Lord.
You are good and forgiving, full of love for all who call to you.
(Ps. 85)


Lord God of power and might, nothing is good which is against your will,
and all is of value which comes from your hand.
Fill our hearts with love for you. Increase our faith,
and by your constant care protect the good you have given us.
Amen.

Lord, you are just, and the judgments you make are right.
Show mercy when you judge me, your servant.

Open our eyes to the wonders this life sets before us,
that we may serve you free from fear and learn to call you God our Father.

Lord God, this day we find ourselves rejoicing with the men and women who have gone before us as witnesses to the faith.
Their witness to the faith gives us encouragement to walk our journey of faith in trust, humility and love.
Help us, Lord, to remain faithful to your teachings and your ways and never let us stray from your path.
Amen.
