PRAYER OF THE MOMENT

Dear Lord,


Amen


Psalm

My Lord, why am I so frightened? Why is my spirit so weak? Where is the faith that can move mountains? Where is the strength that can overcome death? I know I am strong if you make me strong, and my weakness becomes strength in your presence. Touch my heart with a love beyond my understanding, and I will turn to you like the sun flower turns towards the sun. We feel small because we keep looking in the ground. We feel weak because we drift away from your life-giving force. Teach us to turn our eyes towards the sky, and find our strength and comfort beyond the clouds that darken the horizon. Let us drink from your spring of living water, let us reach further than our dreams can reach.

AMEN

Prayer for every day

My Lord God,

Help me cope with one day at a time and make the best of every moment you give me. Rather than try to achieve a million things at once and abandon them half way through, help me do one thing properly and finish it successfully.

Give me wisdom and understanding to accept the things that drive me crazy and turn them into a source of blessing and a way to achieve spiritual progress.

Help me stay calm when people hurt me, and get the best out of negative experiences. Show me that everything happens for a reason and that, no matter what we're going through at the moment, we are not abandoned.

Give me strength to be prepared for whatever tomorrow brings and never give up the good fight.

AMEN

Prayer for a Good End

O Lord, My God,

Will you hold my hand when this journey is over? Will you see me through the darkness and guide my steps towards the light? The animal inside is so frightened at the thought of death, but my spirit longs for freedom, and my freedom is in You. No night is too dark, no abyss too deep and no mountains too high when you are there. Help me cross the point of no return. Give me courage to keep on hoping, loving, and praying when all my world seems to crumble to dust. Give me strength to silence the screams inside my tormented heart. To go further, to dive deeper, to fly higher, with no fear of failure. To reach out to the untouchable star, to listen to the ungraspable whispers beyond the wall of silence. And be with me all the way through.

AMEN

Words About Prayer

Prayer is a bridge to an invisible world. It can take us further and further, beyond the limitations of our body and of the world we live in. It can take us into deep spiritual realms, where the soul feels as free as a bird and there’s nothing to stop its flight.

In prayer we are strong, in spite of our weaknesses, because we establish a relationship with the source of all power, the spring of life and the creator of the universe.

Praying is an activity about which we don’t have to wonder: “Is it in accordance with God’s will?” When you want to do what God wants you to do, but you are not sure about His will or His plan, you can never go wrong with praying.

An honest prayer is worth hundreds of books.

Prayer to Be Part of God's Plan

My Lord,

Help me understand that I need you every day, that my life is a mess without your guidance and your love. So many times I have gone astray, so many times I have been on the point of falling, so many times I have been driven away from you by my vain ambitions and desires. You saved me every time, you rescued me in the last moment, when I thought hope was gone. You were there for me even when I didn't deserve it. Words are too pale and too weak to express my gratitude. Look inside my heart to my unspoken thanks, to the silent song of praise inside my soul.

This world is sometimes a huge and scary place. But it is not so for your children. The orphans of this world find comfort in your fatherly arms, the sick and the vulnerable find strength beyond any human law, the lonely and the depressed find a new meaning in their life.

You give us all comfort and shelter. Even when our life seems in ruin, you make us bear fruit and bring your light into the world. Sometimes we don't quite see where we are, because our senses are limited, but you know exactly the course of our lives and you bring us where you want us to be, where we really belong.

Forgive me for doubting you sometimes. Forgive me for judging what I can't understand. I am a limited human being, I can see only this here and now, but you can see everything. The past and the future are always under your eyes and you know the cause and the effect. Everything happens for a reason. Help me trust you completely and put my heart and my life in your arms. Help me embrace your will for me, even if I don't understand it at the moment. Help me become a part of your great plan of bringing light and comfort into this tired and desperate world. For you are the king of the universe and the God of love, and we are all your children.

AMEN

Prayer for a blessed year

  • My Lord, here we are, in front of you once more, at the beginning of this brand new year. You’ve helped us so far. Help us again and again. Don’t give up on your children, don’t turn your back on them, not even when they turn their back on you, for it is in your arms they will seek comfort in cold, lonely nights. Help us overcome our weaknesses, our fears, our worries, and become stronger in faith, hope and love.

    Teach us to be humble and never to forget the good things you’ve done in our lives. Help us become better persons, and show us how to bring your light into this tormented world. Keep us on the right path and guide our steps in accordance with your will.

    You know the depth, the length and the width of our souls. You know the peaks and the abysses, the echoes and the tones of our being. You know how far we can go, how much we can achieve, how much we can bear. Help us make the best of what you’ve given us. Help us reach the fullest of our potential for the glory of your Name and for the well-being of our neighbours.

    Search our hearts and bring your light into every dark corner of our being. Don’t let any spot of darkness unrevealed, for it will only spread and grow like a disease. Plant good seeds, so that we can bear good fruit. Bless us with your divine love. Where you find a wound, heal it. Where you find pain, soothe it. Where you find fear, turn it into courage. Where you find frustration, turn it into acceptance. Where you find resentment, turn it into forgiveness. Turn our every thought into a silent prayer and our every dream into a garden of blessings. Turn every wrong into right and every disappointment into an inner urge to go on and never give up.

    Make this year a better year for all of us. Bless us with countless blessings. Help us be how you want us to be. As pure as a dove, as strong as a lion, as humble as a lamb, as clever as a snake, and use all these gifts to make the world a sunnier place, even if only for one human being. Give us the patience of Job, the devotion of the apostles, the mercy of Jesus, the strength of the saints, the passion of Mary Magdalene, the fire of the first Christians. Open our eyes and ears, so that we can learn from all things, great and small, how wonderful you are. Let us rejoice in the thought that you, our Creator, are with us all the time, and to you we surrender all until the very last day of our lives.

    AMEN
