I will sing of your salvation.
(Ps 71)


Lord Jesus, you have shown us the way to the Father.
Help us to grow in our understanding of God the Father
and give us the graces needed to become bearers of your name to all whom we encounter in our everyday life.
Amen.

I will be a witness to you in the world, O Lord.
I will spread the knowledge of your name among my friends. Alleluia!
(Ps 17)


Lord Jesus, we come before you in prayer with a deep desire to be a true witness to your presence in our world.
As we walk this journey, there are times when it is so difficult to bear witness to your presence,
yet our desire to do so is so strong.
Help us and guide us along this path of life, so that we may bear witness to your presence
and so others may know of your goodness and love in their lives.
Amen.

Go out to the whole world, and preach the gospel to all creation, alleluia! (Mk 16)

Lord Jesus, we come to you in prayer this day ready and willing to share our faith with the world.
Help us to keep our focus on you and your words,
as we hear the words in the Gospel of Mark,
go out to the whole world, and preach the gospel to all creation.
May we preach the gospel by examples we live in life and may our actions always give witness to your presence in the world.
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.

By your blood, O Lord,
you have redeemed us from every tribe and tongue,

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


Lord Jesus, you have given us the example of a shepherd guarding his flock in the fields.
May we come to know you more deeply as the Shepherd who protects us from all harm,
if only we can place our lives totally into your care.
Amen.

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord;
by the word of the Lord the heavens were made, alleluia.
(Ps. 32)


God our Father, though your people walk in the valley of darkness no evil should they fear;
for they follow in faith the call of the shepherd whom you have sent for their hope and strength.
May we follow the Good Shepherd and be attentive to His voice when he calls out to gather us together.
Amen

Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth. (Ps. 68)


God our Father, there are times in our lives where we find ourselves off the path of life that you have set for us to walk.
Help us this day to remember that all we need to do is call on you and you will guide us back onto the right path.
May we never fear to approach you for guidance and to seek your forgiveness when we have strayed from your grace.
Amen.

Lord Jesus, we come before you with praise and thanksgiving in our hearts.
There is so much we desire to share with you about our families,
friends and co-workers yet today we simply ask that you bless us with your grace
and heal us of all divisions that prevent us from truly bringing your presence to all whom we encounter in life.
Amen.

Keep me safe, O God, you are my hope.
(Ps. 16)


God of love and understanding, as the words in the psalm reflect that you are our hope;
we ask that you do indeed keep us safe.
In our world these days there are so many areas that are filled with violence and hatred.
Help us to be carriers of peace,
always striving to bring harmony into every situation that we are faced with and to generate a lasting love in all situations.
Amen.

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, help us to love you with all our hearts and to love everyone as you love them.
At times, it is so difficult to love those who have hurt us,
done wrong to us and have brought injury to our lives.
Help us to be forgiving, accepting and welcoming of them in our lives.
Amen.

Seeking Healing From God

O God, the source of all health:
So fill my heart with faith in your love,

and gracefully accept your healing;

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

and made the tongues of babies speak.

May all who are reborn in baptism be one in faith and love.
Amen.

A Heart to Love Thee

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore thee,
a heart to delight in thee,
to follow and to enjoy thee,
for Christ's sake.

- Ambrose of Milan (c. 339-97)

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.
