Springtime Prayer

For flowers that bloom about our feet,
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet,
For song of bird, and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
For blue of stream and blue of sky,
For pleasant shade of branches high,
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
(Ps 31)


We strive to place our lives into your hands, yet we fail at times, for we want to remain in control.
May we pray these words in faith, trusting that all things are in your loving care for us.
Amen.

I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord; whoever eats this bread will live forever.
(Jn 6)


There are times when we face danger and evil and need to call upon you for help.
Bless us with the graces we so desire to defend our faith and our struggles with the evil that surrounds us.
Amen.

Save the Afflicted

We beseech thee, Master, to be our helper and protector.
Save the afflicted among us; have mercy on the lowly;
raise up the fallen; appear to the needy; heal the ungodly;
restore the wanderers of thy people;
feed the hungry; ransom our prisoners;
raise up the sick; comfort the faint-hearted.

Clement of Rome (1st Century)

The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
(Ps 118)


Almighty ever-living God, it is an awesome task to be called to follow you in this world.
It is an exciting time for us to share about your life.
It is an excellent moment for us to believe in your Son, Jesus.
Help us not be afraid to proclaim your words to others,
to share your gift of grace and to live your spirit in all that we do.
Amen.

Athirst is my soul for the living God.
(Ps 42)


God of life and love, we long to be in your presence.
We thirst for your loving care, we hunger for your presence,
and we crave for your words all to help us to remain faithful to following you each day.
By these desires, may we come to know you more and grow in our love for you.
Amen.

My soul clings to you; your right hand holds me fast.
(Ps 63)


Lord God, we believe that you are with us always.
Yet there are times that we experience events with other people that make it difficult for us to truly believe that you are with us because of their attitude in speaking with us.
Please show us signs that even in our difficulties in dealing with others, that you are with us.
Help us to cling to you so that we may respond in these hard times with love towards those who offend us.
Amen.

Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
(Ps 33
)

Lord Jesus, we are so aware of your mercy in our lives.
Yet there are times, when we struggle to trust in the plans that you have for us.
We strive to grow in this trust and to place our lives into your hands.
Help us, this day, to turn towards you and place our lives truly into your hands and trust in your will for us.
Amen

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
(Ps 89)


Loving God, may our prayers rise up to you.
May we sing of your goodness today.
We have so much to be thankful for, so much to be grateful for and so much to share with you.
We pause to spend a moment with you to savor the graces that you so often bless us with and we pause to say thank you!
Amen.

I am the vine, you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,
because without me you can do nothing.
Jn 15


Lord, our lives are rooted and anchored by our faith in you.
Our faith gives us the ability to see beyond what our human eyes show us
and help us see your hand guiding the world around us.
Faith helps us to see the values of your kingdom.
Our prayer strengthens our faith and keeps us close to you, I
ndividually and as the community of believers.
Amen

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
(Jn 14)


Lord, you offer us the blessing of peace, shalom.
Peace is fullness of life.
You want us to be fully alive, spiritually,
physically, socially, and so forth.
This peace is much more than the mere absence of violence.
It is being reconciled with you, with one another,
with ourselves, and even with all creation.
When we offer one another the sign of peace,
we share our blessing and commit ourselves to building this kind of peace in the world around us.
May we be peacemakers in our world.
Amen.

God is king of all the earth.
( Ps. 47)


Lord God, we come before you this day asking for your assistance in living out the day to day events in our lives.
It is not always easy for us to remain positive and cheerful when there is so much negativity that surrounds us.
With your grace, may we respond to the tasks that are placed before us with joy and in peace.
Amen.

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain.
(Jn 15)


Lord Jesus, help me remember that it was you who loved me first.
You reached out to me and loved me before I even knew you.
It was your love that gave me hope.
Help me to always remember to respond to your goodness and love,
not only with the feelings of gratitude and love for you,
but also with actions of love that serve you by serving and sacrificing for others.
Amen

The Lord said: I will not leave you orphans.
I will come back to you, and your hearts will rejoice.
(Jn 14)


Jesus our Lord, you said many things when you walked this earth,
we are reminded of them each day in the liturgy and when we take time in prayer.
There are days when we feel like orphans as we lose sight of your presence and we tend to stray away from your teachings.
When this happens, we do long to return to you and have our hearts rejoice in you once again.
Amen.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit is, there is freedom.”
(2 Cor 3)


Lord, we pray for the courage, joy and freedom of the early Christians.
Fill us with love for your son so that we and our families might never turn away from you or him.
Let your Holy Spirit be our life and we will always serve you well.
We pray through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

We too are his offspring.”

Help our families to praise and glorify you in everything we think, say and do this day.
Amen
