Prayers

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy 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.

Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art 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.

St. John Neumann Prayer

Merciful Father, You have given me

all that I have in this world, even life

itself. In all my daily needs, help me to

remember the needs of others too.

Make me aware of the need to pray to 

You not just for myself but for the

Church, the Pope, for the clergy and for

people who suffer any need.

 

Make me selfless as Saint John Neu-

mann was. Throughout my life, give

me the grace to direct my first thoughts

to the service of You and of others.

Make my prayer—“Your will be

done” knowing that in Your mercy and

love, Your will for me is my sanctification.

I ask this through Jesus Christ, our

Lord. Amen

 

Saint John Neumann, pray for us.

St. Teresa of Avila Prayer

Let nothing disturb you,

Let nothing frighten you,

All things are passing away:

God never changes.

Patience obtains all things

Whoever has God lacks nothing;

God alone suffices.

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is error, the truth;

Where there is doubt, the faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

And where there is sadness, joy.

 

O Divine Master,

Grant that I may not so much seek

To be consoled, as to console;

To be understood, as to understand;

To be loved as to love.

 

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

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 hardship as pathway to

peace;

Taking, as Jesus did, this world as it

is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that you will make all things

right if I surrender to your will;

So that I may be reasonably happy in

this life and supremely happy

with you forever in the next.

Amen.

Reinhold Niebuhr
