Daily Prayer - Prayer to Our Lady

October 19, 2017

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, 
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, 
implored your help, 
or sought your intercession was left unaided. 

Inspired with this confidence, 
we turn to you, 
O Virgins of virgins, 
our Mother.

To you we come, 
before you we stand, 
sinful and sorrowful. 
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, 
do not despise our petitions, 
but in your mercy hear us and answer us. 


Daily Prayer - Prayer for the School Year

October 18, 2017

Spirit of God,
fill our hearts with a desire
to seek truth and rejoice in beauty.
Help us to know what is pleasing to you 
and to understand what is right and good in your sight. 
Give us the spirit of learning 
that we may please you by our thoughts 
and love you in your creation. 
Give all teachers your constant encouragement 
and guide them in their good work. 
Spirit of God, make us effective witnesses of your truth 
to all whose lives we touch. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. 

Daily Prayer - Protect Me

October 17, 2017

O My God, I adore You 
and I love You with all my heart. 
I thank You for having created me, 
for having made me a Catholic 
and for having watched over me this day. 
Pardon me for the evil I have done this day; 
and if I have done any good, 
deign to accept it. 
Watch over me while I take my rest 
and deliver me from danger. 
May Your grace be always with me.

Daily Prayer - God Be in Me

October 16, 2017

God be in my head and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes and in my looking.
God be in my mouth and in my speaking.
God be in my heart and in my thinking.
God be at my end and at my departing.

Daily Prayer - Salve Regina

October 15, 2017

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy.
Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To You do we cry, poor banished children of Eve!
To You do we send up our sighs;
mourning and weeping in this vale of tears!
Turn, most gracious Advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this, our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of Your womb, Jesus!
O Clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Daily Prayer - Prayer of the Heart

October 14, 2017

Saint Michael,
your heart was filled with great charity 
for God and man. 
Our Lord returned your love 
and allowed you to exchange mystically 
your heart with His. 
Pray for all whose hearts 
are afflicted with illness, fear, or loneliness. 
Teach us to be resigned to God's will 
in all the trials and sicknesses. 
Help us to live as you lived - 
to do good now and for eternity. 


Daily Prayer - Salvation of the World

October 13, 2017

Father, hear our prayers for the salvation of the world. 
Grant Mercy to all souls that turned away from You. 
Open their hearts and minds with Your light.

Gather Your children from the east and the west, 
from the north and the south.

Have mercy O God on those who do not know You. 
Bring them out of darkness into Your light. 
You are our saving God 
Who leads us in our salvation. 
Protect us from evil.

Bless and praise You O Lord, 
hear our prayers and answer us.
You, our Savior, 
are the hope of all the ends of the Earth 
and the distant seas. 
May Your way be known upon Earth; 
among all nations Your salvation.

We put the world in Your hands; 
fill us with Your love. 
Grant us peace through Christ, our Lord. 


Daily Prayer - Christ Be With Me

October 12, 2017

Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.

Daily Prayer - Prayer to St. John XXIII

October 11, 2017

St. John XXIII, Your simple and meek persona
carried the scent of God 
and the desire of goodness
was inflamed in the heart.

Pray for us so that we do not limit ourselves
to mourn the darkness
but rather to enkindle the light,
bringing Christ everywhere
and always praying to Mary.


Daily Prayer - Prayer for Peace

October 10, 2017

O God, from whom all holy desires, 
all right counsels and all just works do proceed; 
give Your servants that peace which the world cannot give, 
that both our hearts may be set to obey Your commandments, 
and also that we, 
being delivered from the fear of our enemies, 
may pass our time, 
under Your protection,
in rest and quietness. 
Through Christ our Lord.

Daily Prayer - I Give In to Your Will

October 9, 2017

Lord, if what I seek be according to Your will, 
then let it come to pass 
and let success attend the outcome.
But if not, my God, 
let it not come to pass.
Do not leave me to my own devices,
for you know how unwise I can be.
Keep me safe under your protection Lord my God,
and in your own gentle way guide me
and rule me as you know best.


Daily Prayer - Inspire My Heart

October 8, 2017

Queen of the Holy Rosary, 
you have designed to come to Fatima,
to reveal to the three shepherd children,
the treasures of grace hidden in the Rosary.
Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, 
in order that by meditating on the Mysteries 
of our Redemption which are recalled in it, 
I may obtain peace for the world, 
the conversion of sinners, 
and the favor which I ask of you 
in this Rosary. 

I ask it for the greater glory of God, 
for your own honor, 
and for the good of souls, 
especially for my own. 


Daily Prayer - Prayer to Our Lady of the Rosary

October 7, 2017

O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, in these times of such brazen impiety,
manifest your power with the signs of your ancient victories.

From your throne where you give pardon and grace,
mercifully regard the Church of your Son,
His Vicar on Earth, and every order of clergy, religious, and laity,
who are oppressed in this mighty conflict.

You who are powerful, the vanquisher of all heresies, hasten the hour of mercy,
even though the hour of God's justice is every day provoked by the countless sins of men,
the sons and daughters of Adam.

Obtain for me, the least of men, kneeling before you in supplication, 
the grace I need to live righteously upon earth,
in order to be numbered among the just in heaven.

In the company of all faithful Christians throughout the world,
I salute you and acclaim you as Queen of the Most Holy Rosary.

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary pray for us.


Daily Prayer - Prayer for Prisoners

October 6, 2017

Lord, you offer freedom to all people. 
We pray for all who are incarcerated 
and for those who are affected by 
or involved in their imprisonment. 
Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist. 
Support with your love, prisoners, 
their families, friends, 
prison staff and all who care. 
Heal those who have been wounded by the activities of others, 
especially the victims of crime. 
Help us to forgive one another, 
to act justly, 
love mercy 
and walk humbly together with Christ, 
in his strength and his spirit, 
now and every day.
