Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer – Prayer for Society

O Jesus, come back into our society,
our family life, our souls
and reign there as our peaceful sovereign.
Enlighten with the splendor of faith
and the charity of your tender heart
the souls of those who work 
for the good of the people, for your poor.
Impart in them your own spirit,
a spirit of discipline, order and gentleness,
preserving the flame of enthusiasm 
ever alight in their hearts.
May that day come very soon,
when we shall see you 
restored to the center of civic life,

Daily Prayer – Prayer for Justice

Lord Jesus, Carpenter and King,
supreme Sovereign of all men, 
look with tender mercy upon Your children 
who bear the indignities of injustice everywhere. 
Raise up leaders in every land 
dedicated to Your standards of order, equality and justice. 

Grant us, Lord Jesus, 
the grace to be worthy members of Your Mystical Body, 
laboring unceasingly to fulfill our vocation 
in the social apostolate of Your Church. 

Daily Prayer – Seafarers’ Prayer

Heavenly Father: 
we pray to You for those on the perilous ocean 
that You will embrace them with your mighty protection 
and grant them success in all their rightful undertakings. 
Grant them in all hours of need 
to see that they have a God who remembers them, 
and grant them grace in the hour of danger 
to commit their souls into Your hands. 
0 Lord Jesus Christ, 
Who can rebuke the storm and bring it to silence, 
and lay the roaring waves to rest, 
show them who call to You out of the deep 

Daily Prayer – Prayer to St. Francis Xavier Cabrini

Almighty and Eternal Father,
Giver of all Gifts,
show us Your mercy,
and grant, we ask You,
through the merits of Your faithful Servant,
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini,
that all who invoke her intercession
may obtain what they desire
according to the good pleasure of Your Holy Will.
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini,
beloved spouse of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
intercede for us
that the favor we now ask may be granted.

Daily Prayer – Prayer for Sick Child

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior, 
loved children so tenderly 
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, 
listen to us who are pleading for our sick child. 
We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter
and ask Him to restore our child to health
if such be His holy will.
This favour, we beg of you
through your love for all children and mothers.

Amen.
