Help me to live each day in God’s grace and goodness, that I may be always spiritually prepared for death, so I may breathe forth my soul into the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary. Amen.”
Prayer For Emotional Healing
“Holy Mary, loving mother and heavenly guide, be present to me now and let me know your compassion and kindness. Pray for me to your Divine Son, that I may experience calmness, tranquility and peace in all my emotions. Help me to grow in faith and love. Protect me from all that displeases God, and obtain for me serenity of mind, body, and spirit. I place my trust and confidence in you, dear Blessed Mother, and I pray that God’s blessings of mercy, grace, and gentle goodness will bring happiness to my life, now and always. Amen.”
Prayer For Those On Medication
“Loving God, You have provided in our world many healing remedies to assist us when we are sick. You have given great knowledge to doctors and scientists to discover medicines that can cure diseases and help our bodies to heal.
God of life, hear my prayer. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I ask Your blessing upon the medications prescribed for (here mention your name) so that he/she may experience healing, and be restored to the fullness of health in both mind and body.
I call upon Your holy and divine power to remove this sickness, with the aid of effective medications, so that his/her recovery may be a cause for joy, and a special sign of Your love and goodness in our lives. Amen.”
Prayer of Parents
“God of all life, we thank You for the gift of the children You have entrusted to our care. Guide us to help them to grow into compassionate and responsible adults, strong in their Catholic faith and confident in the goodness and abilities You have given them.
Grant that they may be ever aware of Your presence in their lives and Your unconditional love fr them.
Fill them with Your choicest blessings. Enrich their souls with Your grace. Inspire them with Your wisdom. Lead them to grow in virtue each day, so that we may be always united with You and with each other, in this life and in the next. Amen.”
“O Sacrament most holy, O sacrament divine! All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine!” (Prayed by the Sisters of Charity of Our lady, Mother of the Church, every time they pass a church.) Let us pray it daily for a renewed understanding of the Blessed Sacrament as many have lost their faith in the fact that it is the Body/Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. It is the source and summit of our Christian life.
Prayer During Difficult Times
God of love and mercy, assist me in this time of trouble and anxiety. Ease my burdens. Strengthen my faith. In crease my trust and confidence in Your compassionate care. Give me the courage I need, dear Lord, to face the difficulties before me, knowing that with Your help, miracles happen and lives are restored. I pray for a share in Your healing graces, and ask that You surround me with Your comforting goodness, for health in mind and body, and for a heart filled with hope and peace. Amen.”
Prayer For Safe Driving
“O God, be with me and my loved ones whenever we travel. Be our safety every mile of the way. Help us to be alert, attentive, cautious and concerned about our fellow travelers.
Make our highways safe and protect us from all danger. Guide us, without trouble or injury, to all our destinations, for You are the true source of our hope, our happiness and our health. Amen.”
