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


Lord Jesus, in the scriptures we hear that you will not leave us orphans and that you will come back and our hearts will rejoice.
By your gift of grace, may we feel the warmth of your Spirit in our lives,
so that we can truly know that you will not leave us orphans.
Amen.

Lord, hear my voice when I call to you.
You are my help; do not cast me off,
do not desert me, my Savior God.
(Ps. 26)


Lord Jesus, we come before you confident that you hear our voices and will respond to our cry for help.
We realize that without you we are in great danger of falling into unhealthy situations in our lives that will pull us away from you.
We ask for the grace to grow in our trust, confidence and belief in your unconditional love for us in our lives.
Amen.

Think on These Things

Whatsoever things are true,
Whatsoever things are honorable,
Whatsoever things are just,
Whatsoever things are pure,
Whatsoever things are lovely,
Whatsoever things are of good report;
If there be any virtue,
And if there be any praise,
Think on these things.

Philippians 4

Prayer for Strength

Have mercy, O loving God,
upon all who have suffered a stroke.
Remove the sudden fear that befalls them.
Endow them with courage in the struggle
to recover what has been lost.
Grant them strength and hope
to envision new days ahead
and a spirit of faith
to take the risk of living fully
once again.
Amen.

- Vienna Cobb Anderson

The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor,
and to proclaim liberty to captives.
(Lk. 4:18)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the scriptures to bring glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives.
We strive to be so attentive to those around us in need of hearing your words and of being freed in order to live your examples in their lives.
Help us to be attentive to their needs and to respond to them with openness and in love.
Amen.

Within your temple, we ponder your loving kindness, O God.
As your name, so also your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;
your right hand is filled with justice.
(Ps. 47)


God our Father, we do ponder your loving kindness
and we pray that you continue to guide and inspire us to be faithful followers of your Son.
We desire so much that your presence be known throughout the world,
that we want to proclaim from the mountain tops that Jesus Christ is Lord.
May we remain faithful to this desire and find creative ways to share this news.
Amen.

The Spirit of God is upon me; he has anointed me.
He sent me to bring good news to the poor, and to heal the broken-hearted.

We are in such need of your presence in our world.
There are so many people who desire to hear your words and to be healed of their sadness and pain.

In my justice I shall see your face, O Lord;
when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
(Ps. 16)


God our Father, we come before you this day eager to have the promise of seeing you face to face come true for us in our lives.
We live in a time where there is so much fear and mistrust,
that at times we allow this to roll over into our relationship with you.
May we grow stronger in our belief that one day we will see you face to face and that our joy will be full.
Amen.

There are times when we stray from this path and are in need of your forgiveness.

We are his people, the sheep of his flock.
(Ps. 100)


Lord Jesus, you gave us the example of what a Good Shepherd is all about. When a sheep is lost, you leave and go and find the one lost.
We know that when the shepherd speaks the sheep can hear his voice.
We hear in the psalm that we are your people, the sheep of your flock.
May we always be open to hearing your voice and to following you in our journey.
Amen.

God himself is my help.
The Lord upholds my life.
I will offer you a willing sacrifice;
I will praise your name, O Lord, for its goodness.
(Ps. 53)


Lord Jesus, we are in need of your mercy in our lives.
We focus our prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and ask that His mercy be shown to us as we ask for forgiveness in our lives.
May we be filled with your gift of understanding so that we may be a witness to your presence and praise your name every day of our lives.
Amen.

God, our protector, keep us in mind;
always give strength to your people.
For if we can be with you even one day,
it is better than a thousand without you.
(Ps 83)


God our Father, your care extends beyond all boundaries of race and nation to dwell in the lives and hearts of all who follow your words.
May we grow in our love for all humankind and learn each day to accept those who have been hurt by prejudice and hatred.
May we reach out to those who have been hurt and reveal to them your loving and kind embrace.
Amen.

There was a man sent by God whose name was John.
He came to bear witness to the light,
to prepare an upright people for the Lord.
(Jn 1)


Lord Jesus, We prepared the people for your coming by preaching and by the challenges of repentance.
May you open our ears and our hearts so that we may answer this invitation to enter into a relationship with you filled with repentance, love and trust.
May our courage increase and may we be strengthened to proclaim your presence.
Amen.
