Father, I need your help to remain single-hearted in doing your will. It is so easy to get distracted and called away from doing your will. Even in our homes and with our families, the stress of balancing home life, work, school, church, and so many other things can cause us to lose our focus on you. In the stress, we can even lose sight of the reason why we do all these things—the love of you and of our families themselves. Give me the serenity and peace of mind that I do not lose my focus. Amen
Father, help us to love and live as brothers and sisters in all our relationships. If I offend others, give me the humility to go to them and seek forgiveness. Amen
I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard. I felt the answer in my heart although he spoke no word! I didn't ask for wealth or fame (I knew you wouldn't mind.) I asked him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind! I asked that he be near you at the start of each new day: to grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way! I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small. But it was for his loving care I prayed the most of all!
Father, through the intercession of Mary, healer of the sick and comforter of the afflicted, bind up and heal all their wounds. Be the constant peace of all who suffer chronic illness. Bring your healing and peace to all in need of your healing. Renew the hope of heaven in all the terminally ill. Strengthen in compassion and goodness all who visit, love and care for the sick. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen
Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us. Amen
Father, bless this roof that it may shelter and protect; bless these walls that they may warm and guard; bless these doors that they may open onto the world. May the light of your Son, Jesus, live in this house and may it radiate forth from all who live here. Amen
