Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer - Resolve to Do Better

Most merciful Jesus, 
from now on I want whatever You want. 
I have made up my mind to avoid all sin 
and to follow You with bravery and courage. 
I will try above all to correct myself and do better. 
O my Redeemer, 
strengthen my resolution by the merits 
of the Blood You shed for me on Calvary. 
I really want to make up for the past. 
With Your help, which I humbly ask for, 
I will try hard to do whatever You want of me.

Daily Prayer - Reparation Prayer

Eternal Father,
I offer You the Sacred heart of Jesus,
with all Its love,
all Its sufferings and all Its merits;
To expiate all the sins I have committed this day,
and during all my life.

To purify the good I have done in my poor way this day,
and during all my life.

To make up for the good I ought to have done and
that I have neglected this day
and during all my life.

Daily Prayer - Implore Your Assistance

Remember, Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
that no one has ever had recourse to your protection, 
or implored your assistance without obtaining relief. 
Animated with the utmost lively confidence, 
I come laden with the weight of my sins, 
to prostrate myself before you. 
O Merciful Heart of Jesus, 
Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
and you, O glorious St. Joseph, 
do not reject my prayer and petitions
but graciously hear and grant them.

Amen.

Daily Prayer - Memorare of St. Bernard

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
and sought your intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother,
to you I come,
before you I stand sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate!
Despise not my petitions,
but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. 

Amen.

Daily Prayer - Grant My Petition

Remember, most pure spouse of the Virgin Mary, 
Saint Joseph, our beloved patron, 
never was it known that anyone invoked your protection 
and sought your aid without being comforted. 
Inspired with this confidence, 
I come to you and commend myself to you. 
Do not despise my petition, 
dear foster father of our Redeemer, 
but accept them graciously 
and pray for me to adopted Son, Our Lord. 

Daily Prayer - Love Our Enemies

Gracious God,
Ruler of the earth and its people
not by terror but in love;
we worship you.

We confess that too often
our words hurt others
and our deeds are selfish;
forgive us.

In this time of uncertainty and fear,
help us to love our enemies
and do good to those who hate us,
in the name of Jesus our Lord.

Amen.
