Relieve My Bad Mood

Heavenly Father, 
I awoke this morning in a bad mood, 
and I have been unable to shake it so far. 
Everything bothers me and 
everyone rubs me the wrong way.
I just cannot seem to get my true bearings. 
Help me to think of your salvation,
your countless gifts and overwhelming love for me.

Precious Blood of Jesus

O my God, 
in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I offer You the Precious Blood of Jesus
from all the altars throughout the world,
joining with it the offering of my every thought,
word and action of this day.

Raise Up Mankind

O God, by the passion of Your only-begotten Son,
and by the Blood shed through His five most sacred Wounds,
raise up mankind, lost because of sin;
grant that we who on earth
adore the Wounds our Savior received,
may in heaven rejoice in the glory He,
at the price of His precious Blood, 
bought back for us.

Look Upon Me

Lord Jesus Christ, 
eternal and merciful God, 
Creator and Redeemer of all,
listen to my prayer. 

Look on me, merciful Lord, 
as You looked on Your Mother, Mary, 
standing in sorrow beneath Your Cross.

Mary, You Are Mine

Hail, Mary, my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul!
You are all mine through your mercy, and I am all yours. 
But I am not yours completely enough.

Destroy in me all that may be displeasing to God.
Place and cultivate in me everything that is pleasing to you.

Forgive Me Lord Jesus

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,

Compassion for the Sick

Merciful Jesus, 
during Your life on earth 
You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. 
Have compassion now on all those 
who are sick or in pain. 
Grant them a healing of mind and body 
and restore their strength and spirit. 
Comfort them with the knowledge 
that we are praying for them,
