Prayers

At any time of the day or night we can call on Jesus
He is always waiting listening for our call
What a wonderful blessing
No phone needed no e-mails just a whisper

 

The Sign of the Cross


In the Name of the Father
And of the Son
And of the Holy Spirit
Amen

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

The Hail Mary


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

Act of Contrition


I confess to almighty God
And to you my brothers and sisters
That I have greatly sinned
In my thoughts and in my words
In what I have done and in what I have failed to do
Through my fault
Through my fault
Through my most grievous fault
Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin
All the Angels and Saints
And you my brothers and sisters
To pray for me to the Lord our God

The Creed


I believe in God the Father Almighty
Maker of heaven and earth
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
Born of the Virgin Mary
Suffered under Pontius Pilate
Was crucified, dead and buried
He descended into Hell
On the third day He rose again from the dead
He ascended into heaven
And is seated on the right hand of God the Father Almighty
From thence He shall come 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

Anima Christi


Soul of Christ sanctify me
Body of Christ save me
Blood of Christ inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ strengthen me
O good Jesus hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That with thy Saints I may praise Thee
Forever and ever
Amen


The Magnificat


My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour
Because He hath regarded the humility of his handmaid
For behold from henceforth
All generations shall call me blessed
Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me
And holy is His name
And His mercy is from generation unto generations
To them that fear Him
He hath shewed might in His arm
He hath scattered the proud
In the conceit of their heart
He hath put down the mighty from their seat
And hath exalted the humble
He hath filled the hungry with good things
And the rich he hath sent empty away
He hath received Israel His servant
Being mindful of His mercy
As He spoke to our fathers
To Abraham and his seed forever

Salve Regina


Hail holy Queen Mother of Mercy
Hail our life our sweetness and our hope
To thee do we cry poor banished children of Eve
To thee do we send up our sighs
Mourning and weeping in this vale of tears
Turn then most gracious advocate
Thine eyes of mercy toward us
And after this our exile
Show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus
O clement O loving O sweet Virgin Mary

Prayer to Holy Michael the Archangel


Holy Michael the Archangel
Defend us in battle
Be our safeguard against the wickedness
And snares of the devil
May God rebuke him we humbly pray
And do you O Prince of the heavenly host
By the power of God
Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
Who wander through the world
Seeking the ruin of souls
Amen

Psalm 23


The Lord is my shepherd
There is nothing I shall want
Fresh and green are the pastures
Where he gives me repose
Near restful waters he leads me
To revive my drooping spirit
He guides me along the right path
He is true to his name
If I should walk in the valley of darkness
No evil would I fear
You are there with your crook and your staff
With these you give me comfort
You have prepared a banquet for me
In the sight of my foes
My head you have anointed with oil
My cup is overflowing
Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
All the days of my life
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
For ever and ever

Grace Before Meals


Bless us O Lord and these Thy gifts
Which we are about to receive from Thy bounty
Through Christ our Lord
Amen

Guardian Angel Prayer


Angel of God my Guardian dear
To whom God's love commits me here
Ever this day (or night) be at my side
To light and guard to rule and guide


Prayer of Dedication


Lord Jesus I give you my hands to do your work
I give you my feet to go your way
I give you my eyes to see as you do
I give you my tongue to speak your words
I give you my mind that you may think in me
I give you my spirit that you may pray in me
Above all I give you my heart that you may love in me your Father and all people
I give you my whole self that you may grow in me so that it is you Lord Jesus who live and work and pray in me

 

An Act of Spiritual Communion
May be used when unable to receive Holy Communion


My Jesus 
I believe that you are truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament
I love you above all things
And I desire to receive you into my Soul
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally
Come at least spiritually into my heart
I embrace you
As if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you
Never permit me to be separated from you
Amen


A Prayer For All Those Affected By Coronavirus


Keep us good Lord
U

Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
In Christ Jesus our Lord

Amen
