Loving and gracious God You gave us your Son, Jesus Christ. He gave of Himself, not only on the cross, but in every moment of His life. He saw the hungry; He fed them. He saw the lame; He cured them. He saw the sick; He healed them. He saw the discouraged; He encouraged them. He saw the dying; He gave them new life. He gave. In this way, He taught us to give. Loving and gracious God Open our hearts to Your mission and ministry. Strengthen our resolve to be like Your Son, Jesus Christ, To give of ourselves in every moment of our lives.
God, my Father, may I love You in all things and above all things. May I reach the joy which You have prepared for me in Heaven. Nothing is good that is against Your Will, and all that is good comes from Your Hand. Place in my heart a desire to please You and fill my mind with thoughts of Your Love, so that I may grow in Your Wisdom and enjoy Your Peace.
Holy Immaculate Mary, help all who are in trouble. Give courage to the faint-hearted, console the sad, heal the infirm, pray for the people, intercede for the clergy, have a special care for nuns; may all feel, all enjoy your kind and powerful assistance, all who now and always render and will render, you honor, and will offer you their petitions. Hear all our prayers, O Mother, and grant them all. We are all your children: Grant the prayers of your children. Amen
Lord Jesus, our Savior, You have made Your mother Mary a faithful follower of God's law and a chosen member of Your Church. Through her prayers, may we continue to grow in Your love. Lord Jesus, King of all the saints, we praise You now and for ever. Amen.
Lord Jesus, you came into the world to heal our infirmities and to endure our sufferings. You went about healing all and bringing comfort to those in pain and need. We come before you now asking that you may be the source of our strength in body, courage in spirit and patience in pain. May we join ourselves more closely to you on the cross and in your suffering that through them we may draw our patience and hope. Assist us and restore us to health so that united more closely to your family, the Church, we may give praise and honor to your name. Amen.
O Lord, thank you for the precious gift of love you have given to me and the world. Thank you for blessing me every day with this love and for the power and strength that I get from it. I need your love to sustain me. Without it I am lost. Your love is like food and medicine for my soul Lord. Please continue to let me feel your comforting love that I may be able to express it and share it with others.
For the love You bear to those who ask forgiveness, look mercifully on me, as once You looked on Mary Magdalene and on Peter who denied You. Look on me, Lord Jesus Christ, as You looked on the thief on his cross and on every sinner whom You have ever forgiven. Call me from darkness to my Father's house, give me a new heart and a place at Your side at the banquet of Your kingdom. Amen.
Lord Jesus, may everything I do begin with You, continue with Your help, and be done under Your guidance. May my sharing in the Mass free me from my sins, and make me worthy of Your healing. May I grow in Your Love and Your service, and become a pleasing offering to You; and with You to Your Father. May the mystery I celebrate help me to reach eternal life with you.
Lord Jesus, Help me to be straightforward like the sky-seeking redwood tree. May my generosity be like the sap which ascends and nourishes. May my soul be clear like the spring water at its origin. May my will be like the faultless granite. May You be always throughout my life a constant companion. May the cross which rises at the crossroads be for me like the meeting of a friend. Amen.
Lord, Jesus, I come before You, just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Your name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give You my entire self. Lord Jesus, now and forever, I invite You into my life Jesus. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit. Come Lord Jesus, cover me with Your precious blood, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit, I love You Jesus. I praise You Jesus. I thank You Jesus. I shall follow You every day of my life. Amen.
Lord God Almighty, who safely brought us to the beginning of this day, defend us in the same by Your mighty power, that this day we may fall into no sin, but that all our words may so proceed, and all our thoughts and actions may be so directed as to do always that which is just in Your sight. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Almighty and Eternal God, look upon the Face of Your Son Jesus. We present It to You with confidence to implore Your pardon. The All-Merciful Advocate opens His mouth to plead our cause; hearken to His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through His infinite merits hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor miserable sinners. Amen.
Look down, O Lord, from Your sanctuary and from the high habitation of heaven, and behold this sacred victim, which our great High Priest, Your Holy Child, the Lord Jesus, sacrifices to You for the sins of others. Behold, the voice of the Blood of Jesus, our Brother, cries to You from the Cross! Graciously hear, O Lord; be appeased, O Lord; hearken and do not delay for Your own sake, my God, because Your Name is invoked, upon this city, and upon Your people; and do with us according to Your mercy. Amen.
Heavenly Father, my true Provider, in all my daily needs, protect and guide me. Spare me from fire and flood, from thieves, fear and evil in any form. If sickness or accident befall me, send a messenger of love to attend me. When I am feeling low, lift up my heart. I live alone dear Lord, yet because I know your presence is ever near, I will have no fear. Amen.
You have come to my heart, dearest Jesus, I am holding You close to me; I'm telling You over and over, You are welcome, O Little Guest. I love You, I love You, my Jesus, O please do not think I am bold; Of course, You must know that I love You, But I'm sure that You like to be told. I'll whisper, "I love You, my Jesus," And ask that we never may part; I love You, O kind, Loving Jesus And press You still nearer my heart. And when I shall meet You in Heaven, You will recall our fond meetings, When You were my little guest. Amen.
