Daily Prayer – I Feel Miles Away

November 19, 2017

Sometimes, I feel distance from You, oh Lord,
But, You are always right here for me.
I may feel far from trusting You,
Yet, You are trustworthy.
I may fall short of having faith in You, Lord,
However, You are ever faithful towards me.
Bring me closer to your unconditional love and
guide me on the path to righteousness.

Daily Prayer – The Sorrows of Mary

November 18, 2017

Most holy and afflicted Virgin,
Queen of Martyrs, 
you stood beneath the cross, 
witnessing the agony of your dying Son. 
Look with a mother's tenderness and pity on me, 
who kneel before you. 
I venerate your sorrows 
and I place my requests 
with filial confidence 
in the sanctuary of your wounded heart. 

Present them, I beseech you, 
on my behalf to Jesus Christ, 
through the merits of His own most sacred passion and death, 
together with your sufferings 
at the foot of the cross. 
Through the united efficacy of both, 
obtain the granting of my petition. 

Daily Prayer – Prayer for Society

November 17, 2017

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,
borne on the shoulders of your joyful people.

Amen.

Daily Prayer – Prayer for Justice

November 16, 2017

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. 

Sharpen our intellects to pierce the pettiness of prejudice; 
to perceive the beauty of true human brotherhood. 
Guide our minds to a meaningful understanding of the problems of the poor, 
of the oppressed, of the unemployed, 
of all in need of assistance anywhere. 

Guide our hearts against the subtle lure of earthly things 
and undue regard for those who possess them. 
May we hunger and thirst after justice always.

Amen.

Daily Prayer – Seafarers’ Prayer

November 15, 2017

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 
that You hear their prayer and will save them. 
And finally bring us all to the only safe port.

Amen.

Daily Prayer – Savior’s Glory

November 8, 2017

Sing, my tongue, the Savior’s glory,
Of His flesh the mystery sing;
Of the blood all price exceeding,
Shed by our immortal King.
Destined for the world's redemption.
From a noble womb to spring.
Of a pure and spotless virgin,
Born for us on earth below,
He, as man with man conversing,
Stay'd, the seeds of truth to sow;
Then He closed in solemn order
Wondrously His life of woe.
