From Your Loving Hands
Lord, may this day, and all that it brings,
come to me from your loving hands.
For you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
You are the Way, let me just follow.
You are the Truth, let me just see.
You are the Life, let it enfold me,
in summer and winter, in sunshine and sorrow.
All’s good that you send me, today and tomorrow.
Let me just love you, and do as you say.
And so in your name I set out on this day.
A Prayer for Peace
Mary, Queen of Peace, we turn to you, our Mother.
Into your hands we place our prayers
For our men and women, serving in the military, protect them.
For innocent victims, of war and violence, spare them.
For those who mourn and are injured, comfort them.
For people of all nations, unite them.
In the love and peace of your Son, the Prince of Peace.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
Angel of God
Angel of God, My Guardian dear,
To whom His love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side, to light, to guard, to rule and guide.
A Prayer for Those Who Live Alone
I live alone, dear Lord, stay by my side, in all my needs, please be my guide.
Grant me good health, for that I pray, to carry on my work each day.
Keep pure my mind, my thoughts and deeds.
Help me be kind, to meet other’s needs.
Save me from harm and malicious tongues, from pain and fear and evil ones.
When I am sick and in need of care, O Lord, I pray, that You be near.
When I am low or in despair, lift up my heart and hear my prayer.
I live alone, dear Lord, yet have no fear, because I know that You are near.
For Peace in the Family
Lord Jesus, my family needs Your help today.
We need Your peace and tranquility, an end to discord.
Give us strength and compassion to understand each other,
wisdom and love to help each other, and the trust
and patience we need to live peacefully together.
Grant that through the intercession of Your Mother, Mary, and St.
Joseph, our family too may become a holy family.
A family that works together as one. a family that embraces
peace and love, a family whose members are dedicated to each other and to You.
An Evening Prayer
Lord, my God, I thank you for having brought this day to a close. I thank you for granting rest to body and soul. Your hand was over me and has shielded and sustained me. Forgive all the lack of faith and all the sins of this day and help me to forgive all those who have wronged me. Let me sleep in peace beneath your sheltering hand and keep me safe from assaults of the underworld. I commend to you my loved ones; I commend to you this house; I commend to you my body and soul.
God, may your holy Name be praised.
Good Night God
Lord, grant me a quiet night
And a perfect end in you.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
End of the Day
Father, quietly I look back over this day.
I call to mind the things and the people I have encountered in the course of this day and what I have thought, said and done.
Forgive me, wherever I have sinned against you, against others or against myself and let my heart rest in peace with you.
