Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
Ps 106


Loving and gentle God, we believe that all things are possible with you.
We pause this day to give you thanks for the many ways that you bless us.
Your generosity is so great that we are humbled by your gifts of courage, strength, and love.
We lift up our hearts filled with gratitude to you this day.
Amen.

Lord, you are just, and the judgments you make are right.
Show mercy when you judge me, your servant.
(Ps 118)


God our Father, we desire so much to live in a spirit of justice and mercy.
You show us mercy in our lives and give us the freedom to live according to your laws and
attitudes which your Son revealed and witnessed to while He was on earth.
May we grow in our love for you.
Amen.

May we always know your love for us and may we respond with an open heart to your presence in our lives.

I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Ps 30


Lord Jesus, someone touched you in a crowd and you asked; who touched me?
You are so connected to our every move.
This woman was healed because of her faith.
As we approach you for healing may we be gifted with strong faith in your presence.
Help our unbelief to be solid and our humility to be honest.
Amen.

O Lord, your mercy is before my eyes.
Ps 26


Lord Jesus, we hear how you calmed the storm with your apostles in the boat.
As we live the storms in life, help us to rely on you, to call on you and then to believe that you are right there with us.
We trust you when things are going well, help us to deepen our trust when we find ourselves in rough waters of life.
Amen.

You are my God; I will give you praise,
O my God, I will extol you, for you are my Savior.

We come before you ready to give you praise for the many blessings we have received.
May we always remember to give you time each day to express our gratitude and to bring before you all that lives in the depths of our hearts.
Amen.

Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, daughter!
Your faith has saved you.”
And from that hour the woman was cured.
(Mt 9)


Lord, help me to grow in faith so that I may have the great confidence in you that the woman who had suffered so long had.
She was able to place all of her confidence in your healing.
She was able to count totally on your ability to heal her.
Help me to grow that I may have the same confidence in you. May I trust only in you.
Amen.

At the sight of the crowds,
his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned,
like sheep without a shepherd.
(Mt 9)


Lord, there are many people living on the margins, abandoned and without hope: people who must migrate to survive,
people who are excluded from the mainstream of society because of skin color or social class, people without financial resources or even homes.
We are always called to care for those who have no one to turn to.
Grant me the vision to recognize them when I see them and give me the courage to act to protect them.
Amen.

Prayer for Victims of Terrorism

Loving God,
Welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism.
Comfort their families and all who grieve for them.
Help us in our fear and uncertainty,
And bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love.
Strengthen all those who work for peace,
And may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts.
Amen.

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


Lord Jesus, we hear in the Psalm the cry and the plea that you do not abandon us.
May we, with each new day, grow closer to you and never be in situations where we feel you have abandoned us.
For in our times of need and pain, it can feel like you have left us.
Amen.

Let my prayers come before you, Lord; listen, and answer me.
(Ps 87)


Lord Jesus, there are days that we feel the burdens and challenges that this life brings to us.
We ask that you help us become aware of how our prayers come before and rise up before you.
May we grow in our belief that you listen and hear our prayers and respond to us in love and kindness.
Amen.

“I am afflicted and in pain; let your saving help, O Lord, protect me.”
Ps 69


Good Lord, many people have come into my life as willing and active members of service to families.
They possess experience, skills and talents that I lack.
It amazes me that their eager collaboration reduces my anxiety and makes all our work lives more enjoyable and fulfilling.
What a wonderful discovery!
Lord, I thank you for sending your saving help to me through them and through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer for Trust in Jesus

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.
(Ps 65)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the Psalm that the seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.
May our lives be planted in good soil and grow to become strong examples of what is needed to follow you,
with our whole hearts and to remain faithful to our yes in being witnesses to your presence in our lives.
Amen

By the Passion of Your Blessed Son

O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life:
Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ,
that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ.
Amen.

May the lonely be comforted.
May love abound and divisions between us cease to exist.

May we each continue on the path towards enlightenment with gladness and diligence.

Save us, Lord, our God,
and gather us together from the nations,
that we may proclaim your holy name and glory in your praise.
(Ps 105)


Lord our God, you gave us numerous examples of what it is to be a true disciple and to remain faithful to our yes in life.
May we grow in our love for you and may we be strengthened with each new day to respond with a strong yes to following you and to bearing witness to your name in this world.
Amen.

Prayer for the Start of Day

This is another day, O Lord.
I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.
If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.
If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.
If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.
And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.
Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus.
Amen.

Lord, your mercy is my hope, my heart rejoices in your saving power.
I will sing to the Lord for his goodness to me.
(Ps 12)


Almighty God, you are Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
we recognize the presence of your Son in our lives and desire to follow in his footsteps here on this earth.
Your Son bore witness to your presence in our world and gave us the gift of eternal life.
May all our actions and words lead us to receive this promise of eternal life, where we will live with you for all eternity.
Amen.
