The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in his deeds.
(Ps. 145)


Lord Jesus, we strive to remain faithful to your words in our lives and to live in holiness, yet we sometimes fall short of this goal.
At times, we are fragile and weak, and are in need of your mercy in our lives.
In these moments, when we have failed to remain faithful, we ask for your forgiveness and mercy.
Amen.

I will bless the Lord at all times.
(Ps. 34)


Lord, we see the wonder of your love in those who surround us in our daily lives.
May we remain ever close to you by our times of silent reflection on your life and by our prayers.
May these moments of prayer bring us to a deep level of gratitude for your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord,
and may the fullness of his message live within you.
(Col. 3)


God our Father, we give you thanks for the many blessings that we have received in our lifetime.
In times of uncertainty, may we be reminded that you are a God of understanding and patience always ready to hold us in the palm of your hand.
Look upon us and continue to give us the graces to live in true freedom, as we walk this journey of faith.
Amen.

Give peace, Lord, to those who wait for you and your prophets will proclaim you as you deserve.
Hear the prayers of your servant and of your people Israel.
(Sir. 36)


Almighty God, you who are our creator and guide,
may we know of your forgiveness in our lives and follow you with a burning desire to proclaim your word to all those whom we encounter on our path in life.
Hear the prayers of your faithful people, who long to see your face.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Your words, O Lord, give joy to my heart,
your teaching is light to my eyes.
(Ps. 18)


Lord God, as you created each one of us in your image and likeness, your words give joy to our hearts.
May we always share this joy with others and be attentive to your teachings in our lives,
for we are so much in need of your guidance in our ever-changing world.
Amen.

Come, you whom my father has blessed, says the Lord;
I was ill and you comforted me.
I tell you, anything you did for one of my brothers, you did for me.
(Mt. 25)


Lord Jesus, your teachings and examples of the beatitudes give us great encouragement to reach out to those in need.
May we hear the cries of those who are in pain, hurting and feeling so alone.
We ask for your grace to be attentive to their cries and to respond in service to their needs.
Amen.

The Lord says; my plans for you are peace and not disaster;
when you call to me, I will listen to you,
and I will bring you back to the place from which I exiled you.
(Jeremiah 29)


Lord, you are the source of all that is good.
In our lives, there are moments when we fall from the road that brings us to you.
In these moments, there are times that our darkness and fear can appear to overwhelm us.
May your saving grace bring us back on the road that leads to you,
may we grow stronger in our trust of your presence and care of us in our journey in life.
Amen.

I am the light of the world, says the Lord.

Help us to bring your Word to those that we encounter each day and guide all of us to be a reflection of your love.

Our Savior Jesus Christ has done away with death and brought us life through his gospel.
(2 Tim. 1)


Lord Jesus, we all have trials and difficult moments in life that we must face.
Amid these times, help us to remain faithful to your presence in our lives.
Help us to spread your loving presence to those who seem to think there is no hope.
Help us to reveal that there is hope and that they are never alone, for you are with us always.
Amen.

If you, O Lord, laid bare our guilt, who could endure it?
But you are forgiving, God of Israel.
(Ps. 129)


Lord, be attentive to those who call upon you this day.
In our humanness our hearts can at times be like stone.
In these moments, help us to rely on your forgiveness and mercy.
Give us the grace of conversion to change our hardness of hearts into gentle loving beings.
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. 6
)

God our creator, we come before you mindful of how we call upon you to hear our prayers.
Often we come to you with our needs, our fears and our desires and you so graciously answer them.
May we grow in our trust in you and be open to hear your answers.
Amen.

The Lord will reign forever and will give his people the gift of peace.

Lord, you are King of heaven and earth.
Open our minds to hear your words, touch our lips to proclaim your words and open our hearts to feel your presence, so that we may be a faithful witness to your presence in our world.
We pray that your graces will bring all humankind together in this world and that we will all be worthy to share a place in your kingdom forever.
Amen.

I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

Lord Jesus, as we walk this journey of faith may we become more aware of the need for us to take time in silence and reflect on your presence in our lives.
May we come to know you in the silence of our hearts.
Amen.

By the Sea of Galilee the Lord saw two brothers, Peter and Andrew.
He called them; come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
(Mt. 4)


Lord, in your kindness and understanding, hear our prayers.
As you called Andrew to be your follower, so too have we heard your call to take up our crosses and be your disciples.
However, it is not always easy to be your disciple, for there are many times we struggle to say Yes to your call each day.
We ask for your grace to remain faithful and to respond Yes with enthusiasm and joy in being your disciple.
Amen.

Seek the Lord while he can be found.
Call on him while he is still near.
(Is 55)


God our Father, we need your help in our lives.
This day we call on you to give us hope when we feel discouraged,
to give us peace in time of despair, to give us joy in times of sadness and to give us love in those moments that we feel alone,
isolated and forgotten.
We cry out to you, please hear our prayers this day and everyday of our lives.
Amen.

Praying for the Sick

The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up;
and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.

Therefore confess your sins to one another,
and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.
The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.

James 5: 15-16

Spouses' Prayer

Lord Jesus,
grant that I and my spouse may have a true
and understanding love for each other.
Grant that we may both
be filled with faith and trust.
Give us the grace to live
with each other in peace and harmony.
May we always bear with one another's weaknesses
and grow from each other's strengths.
help us to forgive one another's failings
and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness
and the spirit of placing the well-being
of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together
grow and mature with each passing year.
Bring us both ever closer to You
through our love for each other.
Let our love grow to perfection.
Amen
