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.

Like a deer that longs for running streams,
my soul longs for you, my God.
My soul is thirsting for the living God.
(Ps 41)


Lord Jesus, We come before you this day to pray for all those who find themselves in positions of leadership.
May they grow in their courage to be true witnesses to your word and your life.
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.

With Christ I am nailed to the cross.
I live now not with my own life, but Christ lives within me.
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and sacrificed himself for me.
(Gal 2)


Lord Jesus, May we grow stronger in our witness to following Christ in all that we do each day.
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.

He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
(Ps 91)


Spirit of light and love, I am terrified I shall break under the pressure, my hopes broken.
As I struggle with my fears, uplift my heart, oh God, rekindle my faith.
This is my prayer: to pray for what I have, To pray for health, if I am graced with health.
To pray for love, if blessed with loved ones, Who offer me the priceless gift of love's embrace.
Remind me to pray, if I am blessed to be a parent, for the treasure of children.
Remind me to give thanks for those, Who reach out to take my hand,
Who walk with me and stand by me, Who raise my spirits by your presence, Whose smile brightens my view, And lifts my heart, And gives me joy.
For if I pray for the wonders that are mine To savor this very day, These, the most precious, of my prayers will come true.
I shall again unwrap the present, Give thanks for thy many gifts. My lifeline will be strengthened,
My perspective widened, And for one brief, shining moment, The shadows will lift from my heart.
So it is I offer up my thanks. So it is I utter forth, oh God, From the depth of my soul, This grateful prayer of gratitude and praise.
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)


Lord Jesus, we come to you this day asking for your help.
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.
Amen.

Do not abandon me, Lord.
My God, do not go away from me!
Hurry to help me, Lord, my Savior.
(Ps 37)


God of compassion, we are in great need of your loving presence in our lives. On this day confusion and fear.
We hunger for your wisdom to nourish us with strength and encourage as we struggle to make sense out of the tragedies which have befallen us on this date that will always be remembered.
We thirst for the spring of life-giving waters, which purify and sanctify life as the pain and anguish are overwhelming.
In your Son's earthly life, he gave us the Beatitudes to guide us along our journey.
May we draw new life from the examples he gave of how to respond to life's situations and to focus our attention on the greater good of all.
May we become prayerful people full of hope, peace and love.
So the words, "A world at prayer is a world at peace", will echo true in all your people.
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, may our love for you know no boundaries,
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.

If anyone loves me he will hold to my words,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him,
and make our home with him.
(Jn 14)


Lord Jesus, let us pray this day for all who believe they find themselves dealing with hopeless cases.
That they will turn to you for inspiration and guidance in dealing with the events and people in their lives.
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.
