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.

Amen

 

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.

Amen

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.

Amen

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.

Amen

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.

Amen

 

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.

Amen

 

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.

Amen

 

Daily Prayer to the Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart of Jesus, today I wish to live in You, in Your grace, in which I desire at all costs to persevere. 

Keep me from sin and strengthen my will by helping me keep watch over my senses, my imagination and my heart. 

Help me to correct my faults which are the source of sin. I beg to do this, O Jesus, through Mary, Your Immaculate Mother.

Amen.

Thanksgiving for a Favor Received

Thank You, O God for hearing my prayer and granting my request. Thank You for all the kindness You have shown me.

Thank You, Father for Your great love in giving me my life, for Your great patience for preserving me despite my sinfulness, for your protection in the past and for the opportunity to serve and honor You in the future.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for keeping me numberless times from sin and death by the toils of Your life, the sufferings of Your Passion, and by Your victorious Resurrection.

Thank You, Holly Spirit of God, for bestowing so many graces upon my soul and for having so frequently renewed Your life within me.

May my life, from now on, be a sign of my gratefulness.

Amen.

 

Prayer of Charity

Gracious God, I offer You my heart-felt gratitude for Your countless graces and blessings to me and my loved ones each day.

In response to Your goodness, dear Lord, help me to be aware of the needs of my least sisters and brothers, and to assist those who are poor and less fortunate with generous expressions of charity, kindness and caring.

On that day, o Lord, when I finally stand before You to give an account of my life, I pray I will hear You say, “Come, O good and faithful servant to share your Father’s joy, for when I was hungry, thirsty, naked, homeless, ill and imprisoned, you offered your gifts in charity, and you lovingly did it for Me.”

Amen.
