February 23, 2017

Loving Father, faith in Your Word is the way to wisdom. Help me to think about Your Divine Plan that I may grow in the truth. Open my eyes to Your deeds, my ears to the sound of Your call, so that my every act may help me share in the life of Jesus. Give me the grace to live the example of the love of Jesus, which I celebrate in the Eucharist and see in the Gospel. Form in me the likeness of Your Son and deepen His Life within me.

February 22, 2017

Lord, Make me an instrument of your love. May I see each circumstance in my life as an opportunity to grow in your love. May I see my environment as a place to grow in your love. Help me be loyal to those you give me to love. Help me to believe in them, even when they do not believe in themselves. To expect the best from them, but accept the best they can give. May I always defend them, as you always defend me. All gifts and powers come from you. All will come to an end. With one important exception, the gift of love! Lord, when I was a child, I thought like a child, I acted like a child, and I reasoned like a child. Now that I have become an adult, I release my childish ways. Amen.

February 21, 2017

Loving mother of the Redeemer, gate of heaven, star of the sea, assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again. To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator, Yet remained a virgin after as before. You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting, have pity on us poor sinners.

February 20, 2017

Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly ask You that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Your favor and glad to do Your will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people, the multitude brought to us from many lands. Endow with Your spirit of wisdom those whom in Your name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Your law, we may show forth Your praise among the nations of the earth.

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.

February 18, 2017

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.

February 15, 2017

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.

February 14, 2017

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.

February 13, 2017

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.

February 12, 2017

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.

February 11, 2017

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.

February 10, 2017

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.

February 9, 2017

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.
