This day, we come before you and cry out for this gift of your mercy in our lives.
We are confident that you hear our prayers and that we will receive your mercy.
Amen.

Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
(Ps 51)


Lord Jesus, may we be reminded each and everyday of our lives of your love for us.
During this season may we take time to reflect on our times of difficulties, struggles,
sinfulness and on those moments when we have not made your presence known to those around us.
May we grow in our love for you and may we continue to strive to live in a grace-filled life with you.
Amen.

Give light to my eyes,
Lord, lest I sleep in death,
and my enemy says:
I have overcome him.
(Ps 13)


Lord, our world is in such need of your love and to have others who will give witness to your presence in this world.
Help us to bear this witness to those whom we encounter in our journey in life and give us the strength to share our love of you with others.
Amen.

Do not abandon me, Lord. My God, do not go away from me! Hurry to help me, Lord, my Savior.

Lord Jesus, we come before you this day asking that we recieve the grace to always be mindful of your presence in our lives.
There are times where we sometimes feel that we are abandoned by you.
Yet it is because we turn our backs on you and allow our own humanness to get in the way of your presence and grace.
Help us to turn towards you in our struggles and in our joys and always praise you for the gift of life.
Amen.

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


God our Father, we are mindful of how we need to reflect on our lives and
make some decisions that will help us return to you with all of our hearts.
We ask that you send your Spirit to guide us and help us on this path of life.
Amen.

Receive and submit to the word planted in you;
it can save your souls.
(James 1)


God our Father, in your love for us, you keep us from harm.
In this world we are faced with many challenges that pull us in many directions,
sometimes in areas we would prefer not to be, yet find ourselves in.
Help us and guide us to stand firm when faced with this struggle.
For this day, we call upon you to be our strength and to give us hope to live our lives in your grace.
Amen.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
(Ps 146)


God our Father, help us to love you with our whole heart and soul and mind and help us to love others as you love us.
In our world, we are in need of sharing the gift of your love to those we encounter in life.
Help us to be ready to lend a hand when needed,
to have a listening ear when someone needs to share and to have our hearts wide open to embrace those who are in need of a loving hug in their lives.
Amen.

Thank you for the brave men and women who serve and have served in the military.

Even now, guard them and give them compassion for those who confront them as enemies.

Keep our children from hate that hardens, or from scorekeeping with human lives.

Though for a season they and we must be people of war, let us all live for peace, as eager for agreement as for victory.

Encourage them as they encourage one another, and never let hard duty, in or out of the service, separate them from loyalty to your Son, our Savior. 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)


Almighty God, you are our hope and our strength, without you we are weak.
We come before you in humility asking for your graces to strengthen us,
give us hope to continue to follow you in our lives.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

God's love for us was revealed when he sent his only Son into our world,
so that we could have life through him.
( 1Jn 4)


God our Father, we are thankful for the gift of life.
We are reminded of how precious this gift of life is in our world.
Your Son revealed for us the love you have for us.
May we grow in our love for you and for our brothers and sisters
as we take this moment in prayer to be with you.
Amen.

I call you my friends, says the Lord,
for I have made known to you all that the Father has told me.
(Jn 15)


Lord Jesus, it is so good to hear that you call us friends.
We desire so much to be your friend.
You have made known to us all that the Father has told you and we want to hear more.
In this wanting, we desire to believe more deeply in your words and in your life.
As we journey with our friends and family, guide us to hear your words over and over again,
so that we may develop a natural response to hear your words and to do the will of the One who sent you.
Amen.

Prayer for Renewal

Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.


Psalms 51: 9-12

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.
(Ps 40)


Lord, we come before you ready to do your will.
Looking all around, the needs are so great that often times we can feel some discouragement.
Let us take time this day to reflect on the words in Psalm 40 to give us strength and courage to pray the words,
"here I am, Lord; I come to do your will".
Amen.

Sing and play music in your hearts to the Lord,
always giving thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Eph 5)


Lord Jesus, on this day that we celebrate the tradition of Thanksgiving,
let us pause to give you thanks for the wonders of your creations,
for the gift of life, for the bountiful resources our world possesses and for your loving presence in our lives.
We ask that you open our hearts to the concern of our neighbors and to those who are alone.
We pray with grateful hearts for the grace to share your goodness with those whom we encounter each day.
Amen.

The Future Is Full of Promise

The future is full of promise, Holy Mystery,
if only because we discern your forces of evolution at work everywhere.

Every opening daffodil, every growing child,
every glimmer of human enlightenment, every bodily process of healing -- tells us the future is not fearsome but is full of promise.

Your face is hidden, your name unknown:
still we turn to you in faith and confidence.

Creating Spirit, we hear your comforting voice
in the steady music of the unfolding of creation.

We give thanks to exist,
and to be the joy of your heart.
Amen.

William Cleary
