Weekly Payer - Give Today

December 1, 2016

Dear God, I spend so much time reliving yesterday or anticipating tomorrow that I lose sight of the only time that is really mine, the present moment. You give today one moment at a time. That's all I have, all I ever will have. Give the faith which knows that each moment contains exactly what is best for me. Give the hope which trusts You enough to forget past failings and future trials. Give the love which makes each moment an anticipation of eternity with You.

Weekly Prayer - Your Kindness

November 24, 2016

Father all-powerful, your gifts of love are countless and your goodness infinite. On Thanksgiving Day we come before you with gratitude for your kindness: open our hearts to concern for our fellow men and women, so that we may share your gifts in loving service. 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.

Weekly Prayer - Your Creation

November 10, 2016

The many colors of autumn remind us of the great variety in your creation, each having value and worth.

Your glory shines through what you have made. Amen – Columban Fr. John Comiskey

Weekly Prayer - Born of Water

November 3, 2016

Father in Heaven, when the Spirit came down upon Jesus at His Baptism in the Jordan, You revealed Him as Your own Beloved Son. Keep me, Your child, born of water and the Spirit, faithful to my calling. May I, who share in Your Life as Your child through Baptism, follow in Christ's path of service to people. Let me become one in His Sacrifice and hear His Word with faith. May I live as Your child, following the example of Jesus.

Weekly Prayer - A Farmer's Prayer

O glorious St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, you did provide for the Holy Family. We commit to your protection all our crops and farm industries. We beseech you, to intercede in our behalf with Almighty God, Who rules the seasons, so that our fields being safe from pests and favored by the weather may yield abundant crops that will allow us to supply the wants of life. Thus freed from earthly worries may we after your example apply all our thoughts to eternal life.

Weekly Prayer - Your Holy Will

October 13, 2016

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Weekly Prayer - You Are With Us

October 6, 2016

You are with us in all we say and do. Yet we can forget your presence and get caught up with the many distractions and false gods that beset us. We can forget that others are part of our lives. We can easily ignore or worse condemn the poor, the abandoned, the exiles and those whose beliefs differ from our own. Show us how to open our hearts and bear each other’s burdens. Amen – Columban Fr. John Comiskey

Weekly Prayer - Price of Your Blood

August 31, 2016

Christ, the only-begotten Son of the unbegotten Father, who this day was slain for us, the innocent for the ungodly, remember the price of Your Blood and blot out the sins of all Your people; and as You are pleased to endure for us reproaches, spitting, bonds, blows, the scourge, the Cross, the nails, the bitter cup, death, the spear, and lastly burial, save us wretched ones, for whom You suffered this, the infinite blessedness of the heavenly kingdom, that we who bow down in reverence for Yo

Weekly Prayer - Ceaseless Praise

August 25, 2016

O everlasting and loving God, I consecrate myself wholly to you today. Let all my days offer you ceaseless praise, My hands move to the rhythm of your impulses, My feet be swift in your service, My voice sing constantly of you, My lips proclaim your message, My eyes perceive you everywhere, And my ears be attuned to your inspirations. May my intellect be filled with your wisdom, My will be moved by your beauty, My heart be enraptured with your love, And my soul be flooded with your grace.
