Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.
(Ps 128)


Lord God, as we try to live according to your laws and ways,
we sometimes fall short of being faithful and we become discouraged.
For there are many distractions that surround us and it can become a bit overwhelming for us.
We are in need of your guidance,
your graces and your love to help us walk in your ways.
Amen.

In the past God spoke to our fathers through the prophets;
now He speaks to us through His Son.
(Heb 1)


Lord God, open our ears to hear the Words of your Son, touch our lips to proclaim your presence in our lives and in our world and heal our broken hearts so that we may love our neighbors.
May we be living examples of your Son's actions on earth and be peacemakers in situations that we find ourselves living in at this time.
Amen.

Christmas Eve Prayer

Most Loving Father, thank you for this night and for all it represents.
Thank you for the hope you bestow, the peace you bring, the love you pour out, and the joy you give.
We praise you most of all for Jesus, your Word made flesh. May he light our way as the holy star lit the way for the wise men.
Amen

Rev. Richard J. Fairchild

For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
(Lk 2:11)


God our Father, today you make this day special with the birth of your Son Jesus.
We welcome Him into our lives as the Way, the Truth and the Light.
May we share the gift of the presence of Jesus on this day of Christmas with those who surrounds us,
with our family members,
our friends and our co-workers.
We may sing as the Angels did on the first Christmas morning:
Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.
Amen.

The Word of God became a man and lived among us. He enabled those who accepted him to become the children of God.
(Jn 1)


Father, your Son was born like us but without sin.
As we journey in our faith,
may we be reborn in him and help us to be free from sin,
so that we may follow you with a pure heart and soul.
Amen.

Listen, Lord, and answer me.
Save your servant who trusts in you.
I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, Lord.
(Ps. 85)



Lord our God, we trust in your loving presence in our lives.
As we live in an ever-changing world,
our lives can be entangled in the chaos of moving too quickly.
We are in need of your mercy especially in those times when we find ourselves caught in the spiral of chaos and negativity.
Amen.

The Lord will reign forever and will give his people the gift of peace. (Ps 29)

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 for ever.
Amen.

Prayer to Do What's Right

O Almighty and Everlasting God, Creator of Heaven, Earth, and the Universe, help me to be, to think, to act what is right,
because it is right. Make me truthful, honest, and honorable in all things;
make me intellectually honest for the sake of right and honor and without thought of reward to me.
Give me the ability to be charitable, forgiving, and patient with my fellow men.
Help me to understand their motives and their shortcomings,
even as thou understandest mine!
Amen.

Robert E. Lee

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.

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
In green pastures he gives me rest,
he leads me beside the waters of peace.
(Ps. 22)


God our creator, in your infinite wisdom you created us.
You show us what it means to be a shepherd, to care for those who are entrusted to us.
Today we remember in a special way all of our military who served us so well over the years.
We pray in thanksgiving for their lives and for their families.
Amen.

Lead Me to Peace

Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace.
Let peace fill my heart,
my world, my universe.
Amen.

The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.

Lord Jesus, we are mindful of your presence in our lives and in our world.
We pray that we will always come to you when we are in need of your guidance and inspiration,
especially in those moments when we need to make an important decision.
May you give us the grace to be open to hear your words during these times.
Amen.

We have seen his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.
(Mt 2)


God our creator, as the star revealed the way for the Wisemen to know where your Son was born,
may you illuminate our path so that we may follow your Son in our faith journey.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

My Heavenly Father, I thank You, through Jesus Christ, Your beloved Son,
that You kept me safe from all evil and danger last night.
Save me, I pray, today as well, from every evil and sin,
so that all I do and the way that I live will please you.
I put myself in your care, body and soul and all that I have.
Let Your holy Angels be with me, so that the evil enemy will not gain power over me.
Amen.

Martin Luther

A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, you nations, and adore the Lord. Today a great light has come upon the earth.


Lord Jesus, there are times that we live in darkness.
During these times, we ask that you lead us through these dark moments into the light of your presence.
May we never feel ashamed to ask you to help us out of the darkness and into the radiant joy of your light.
Amen.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord;
the Lord God shines upon us.
(Ps. 117)


God our creator, your Son came to this earth to be like us in all things but sin.
He gave witness to your presence and spoke of your love for each one of us.
Help us to become more like Him as we grow closer to you.
Amen.

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
on those who lived in the shadow of death a light has shone.
(Is 9:2)


God, light of all nations, we come before you asking for you to give us the light of life.
As we receive this gift from you, may we be able to dispel the darkness that sometimes surrounds us
and shed the brightness of your presence in our world.
Amen.

The heavens were opened and the voice of the Father thundered:
This is my beloved Son, listen to him.
(Mt. 3)


Almighty, eternal God, we celebrate the baptism of your Son.
We are reminded of our own baptism and how we became your followers.
However, there are times when we fail in our commitment to follow you.
During these dark moments of struggle help us to ask for your forgiveness.
Amen.

The Lord takes delight in his people.
(Ps. 149)


God our Father, we are always yearning to become more like you.
However, there are times when we fail to reflect your love and presence in our lives and with those whom we encounter each day.
Help us to look to you for guidance in times of struggle and not be fearful to ask for your forgiveness.
Amen.

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


Lord, giver of all that is good.
Help us to be ever mindful of those who are deprived of the simple necessities of life.
May we be able to offer them food, housing, clothing and to reveal your loving and caring presence to them.
Amen.

Jesus proclaimed the Gospel of the Kingdom and cured every disease among the people.
(Lk. 5)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the gospel about the man who was cured of leprosy.
We pray for all who are suffering from a disease that inhibits them from being accepted into our society.
May they know of your love for them and may we assist them in their pain and unacceptance.
Amen.
