Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth;
you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
(Mt. 11)


God our Father, your Son Jesus taught many times through parables.
We hear in scripture about the merchant in search for fine pearls.
Help us to grow in our understanding of what it means to be a true disciple and to recognize good value and the priceless treasures in our lives.
Help us to put aside material belongings in order to focus on following the ways of your Son.
Amen.

I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.
(Jn 8).

Almighty Father, we pray for all who are in ministries of hospitality and service to others.
May they know how much they are appreciated and may they receive the graces to continue to grow in their belief as disciples.
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, sometimes our lives can seem so difficult,
painful that we lose sight of your presence in our lives.
We sometimes don't know how to approach you for we have sinned
and are in need of your forgiveness and healing,
yet our humanity gets in our way of asking for your forgiveness and strength.
We come before you this day, mindful of our sinfulness and our deep desire to be forgiven.
Help us to live with our humanness and to call to you for mercy.
This day, may we feel your forgiving presence in our lives.
Amen.

Avoid greed in all its forms
(Luke 12:15)


Lord, we thank you for what you have given us in this life,
and we trust that you will always care for us.
Make us rich in compassion, in trust, hope and love.
Amen.

I will look after my sheep, says the Lord,
and I will raise up one shepherd who will pasture them.
I, the Lord, will be their God.
(Ezek 34)


Let us pray for all those who teach morality, that they will bear true witness to their own teachings
and by their example others will come to experience reconciliations in their lives.
Amen.

The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Who shall frighten me?
The Lord is the defender of my life.
Who shall make me tremble?
(Ps. 26)


Lord Jesus Christ, we come before you in prayer with grateful hearts for all the good that you have shown us in our lives.
You are our light and our salvation,
may we never feel fear in our lives that it would separate us from you.
We believe that you are our defender in life,
may we always come to you when we are faced with difficulties and hardships.
Amen.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
(Mt. 5)


God our Creator, there are so many people in our world who are persecuted for their belief in you.
We hear in scripture that those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness that the kingdom will be theirs.
We pray for all those whose lives are threatened by violence because of their witness to your presence in our world.
May they feel your presence in their life and may they be strengthened in your love and mercy to continue to bear witness to your name.
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)


God our Father, we ask that you keep us strong and alive in your love.
As we journey in this life, we are in need of your strength to sustain us
and to help us remain focused on our journey in life.
There are many distractions that can cause us to lose sight of your presence in our lives and in our world.
May we strive to remain focused and to give you thanks each
and every day for we are grateful for the many graces that you give us in our journey in faith.
Amen.

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 blessings;
be our shepherd for ever.
(Ps. 27)


God our Father, it gives us great joy to call you Father and to be mindful that we are your children.
We desire that you be our shepherd and guide us as a shepherd does his flock.
We know that when one sheep is lost from the fold, the shepherd goes to find the lost sheep.
May we never stray from your fold, but if we do, may you come to find us and bring us back.
Amen.

In the shining cloud the Spirit is seen;
from it the voice of the Father is heard:
This is my Son, my beloved, in whom is all my delight.
Listen to him.
(Mt. 17)


Almighty God, we celebrate the feast of the Transfiguration of your Son.
By this witness, you strengthen our faith
and give us hope in the promise that we will become heirs to eternal life with him.
As we listen to the voice of your Son, guide us in our journey
and help us to be witnesses to the need for us to hear his voice in our lives.
Amen.

The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
(Jer. 31)


God our Father, your Son brought light into our world.
We desire to shed the brightness of this light in places where there is darkness.
In baptism we were given the light of Christ to shine brightly before all.
May we never let this flame burn out.
We ask for your grace to keep this flame alive
and to be bearers of the light of Christ to all whom we encounter in our journey in life.
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, there are many moments in our lives where we have done wrong and are in need of your forgiveness.
Help us to turn towards you in these moments and draw strength from your graces to face the wrong we have done.
May we always know of your saving grace in our lives.
Amen.
