Lord’s Prayer (The Our Father)
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be They name
Thy Kingdom come;
Thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us
and lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
Amen.

Prayer to One’s Patron Saint (for intercession when in need)
Glorious Saint N. (name of patron saint),
You served God in humility and confidence on Earth.
Now you enjoy His beatific vision in heaven.
You persevered until death
And gained the crown of eternal life.
Remember now the dangers and confusion and anguish that surround me
And intercede for me in my needs and troubles
especially….(make your request)
Amen.

A Short Grace For Use Before Meals
O Lord, bless this food to our use,
and us to your service;
make us grateful for all your mercies,
and mindful of the needs of others.
Amen.
Prayer For Peace Among Nations
O Almighty God,
the Father of all humanity,
turn, we pray, the hearts of all peoples and their rulers,
that by the power of your Holy Spirit
peace may be established among the nations
on the foundation of justice, righteousness and truth;
through him who was lifted up on the cross
to draw all people to himself,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
William Temple (1881-1944)
The Blessing of Unanswered Prayers
I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I had asked for,
but everything that I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered;
I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died,and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day, he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Amen.

You persevered until death
And gained the crown of eternal life.

especially....(make your request)
Amen.
An Evening Family Prayer
Lord, behold our family here assembled.
We thank you for this place in which we dwell,
for the love that unites us,
for the peace accorded to us this day,
for the hope with which we expect the morrow;
for the health, the work,
the food and the bright skies
that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth.
Amen.
Robert Louis Stevenson
For Those Searching for God
O Lord my God,
Teach my heart this day where and how to see you,
Where and how to find you.
You have made me and remade me,
And you have bestowed on me
All the good things I possess,
And still I do not know you.
I have not yet done that
For which I was made.
Teach me to seek you,
For I cannot seek you
Unless you teach me,
Or find you
Unless you show yourself to me.
Let me seek you in my desire,
Let me desire you in my seeking.
Let me find you by loving you,
Let me love you when I find you.
St. Anselm

Prayer of the Eucharist (a prayer of thanks)
God our Father, you have brought us here together
so that we can give you thanks and praise
for all the wonderful things you have done.
We thank you for all that is beautiful in the world
and for the happiness you have given us.
We praise you for daylight
and for your word, which lights up our minds.
We praise you for the earth,
and all the people who live on it,
and for our life, which comes from you.
We know that you are good.
You love us and do great things for us.
So we all sing together:
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might.
Heaven and Earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest!
Amen.

A Daily Consecration to the Holy Ghost
O Holy Ghost, divine Spirit of Light and love
I consecrate to Thee my understanding, my heart and my will,
My whole being, for time and eternity.
May my understanding be always submissive to Thy heavenly inspirations
And the teachings of the Catholic Church
Of which Thou art the Infallible Guide.
May my heart be ever inflamed with love of God
and of my neighbour.
May my will be ever conformed to the divine will,
And may my whole life be a faithful imitation of the life and virtues
Of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,
To whom, with the Father and Thee,
Be Honour and glory forever.
Amen.

Twenty-Third Psalm
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures
he leads me beside still waters
he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff; they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies
you anoint my head with oil
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
my whole life long.
Psalms 23: 1-6
The Lord Is Thy Keeper
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills.
From whence cometh my help?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Psalms 121: 1-8
The Hail Mary
Hail Mary!
Full of grace, the Lord is with Thee
Blessed are thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
Glory Be
Glory be to the Father
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
World without end.
Amen.
Grace at the Table
Be present at our table, Lord,
Be here and everywhere adored.
These morsels bless, and grant that we
May feast in Paradis with Thee.
Let us be grateful for what we are about to consume
Sharing with all who sit in this room
Remembering that we are blessed
To have been granted our daily bread
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Amen.
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
Prayer for Trust in Jesus
O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.
Amen.
St. Ignatius of Loyola

Children's Prayers

Morning Prayer
Now, before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To God Who kept me through the night
And waked me with the morning light.
Help me, Lord, to love Thee more
Than I have ever loved before,
In my work and in my play,
Be thou with me through the day.
Amen.
Father, We Thank Thee
Father, we thank thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.
Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To grow more loving every day.
Rebecca Weston 1890
Good Night Prayer
Father, unto Thee I pray,
Thou hast guarded me all day;
Safe I am while in Thy sight,
Safely let me sleep tonight.
Bless my friends, the whole world bless;
Help me to learn helpfulness;
Keep me ever in Thy sight;
So to all I say good night.
Amen.
-Henry Johnstone
The Senses Prayer
Jesus, help my eyes to see
All the good Thou sendest me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear
Calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go
In the way that Thou wilt show.
Jesus, help my hands to do
All things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus help my nose
To smell the scents up close
Jesus help my tongue to taste
Savouring Thy bread without haste
Jesus, may I helpful be,
Growing every day like Thee.
Amen.

Angel of God, my Guardian dear,

keep me in thy loving care.

Prayer for Students
God of Light and Truth,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life,
for all knowledge leads to you.
Let me be aware of your presence
in all things and at all times.
Encourage me when work is difficult
and when I am tempted to give up;
encourage me when my brain seems slow
and the way forward is difficult.
Grant me the grace to put my mind to use
exploring the world you have created,
confident that in you there is a wisdom
that is real.
Amen.
