Weekly Prayer - In Your Presence

June 7, 2018

Today, again, I am in Your presence,
Your real presence, Your saving presence.
I adore You.
I am allowed by You to be before You here.

I see it’s a beautiful day outside, a pure blue sky.
The sun shines on the green and gold house
reminding me of home and family.
Here I am in Alto Hospicio.
It was dark earlier when I got up,
but now it’s bright.

Weekly Prayer - Feast of the Visitation

May 31, 2018

My soul magnifies the Lord
And My spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

Because He has regarded the humility of His handmaid:
for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Because He that is mighty has done great things to me:
and holy is His Name.
And His mercy is from generation to generations,
to them that fear Him.
He has shown might in His arm:
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

Weekly Prayer - Brothers and Sisters

May 24, 2018

Lord God, for a long time,
I disregarded brothers and sisters;

Neither did I show respect
for the earth and all of Your Creation.

These days, by Your abundant grace and blessings;
I have time and attention for the sisters and brothers
who live in poverty.

And, Dear Jesus, I am more attentive
to our common home.
There is a deeper awareness
about how my behaviors contribute
to pollution of air, land and sea.

Weekly Prayer - A Prayer for Peace

May 17, 2018

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits. 
It cries of children torn from families. 
Of mothers broken and shattered. 
Of fathers helpless and distraught.

O Lord of Peace, the world awaits. 
Bless this world, O Lord, 
with the peace You promised. 
Begin in me Your work of peace; 
guide me in the path of peace 
complete in me Your peace.

Weekly Prayer - Family Prayer

May 10, 2018

Dear God, we thank You for the love
and many blessings You give Us.
May we cherish the gift of each other.
Help us to show our gratitude 
by loving each other as You love us 
and sharing that love with others, 
especially those who have less in life.

Make us understanding and patient 
with one another – quick to admit 
our failings and ask forgiveness – 
generous in sharing the joy 
and strength we can give each other.

Weekly Prayer - Holy Ground

April 26, 2018

Loving God,
We believe You live among us
and the place where You are is Holy Ground,

We know You love all peoples and that their
ways and lands are also Holy.

Help us to discover all Your wonders in their
faith, their lives and their stories.

Send us Your spirit, and we will listen,
learn and meet You in Your
Holy Ground.

Amen.

Weekly Prayer - In Gratitude

April 19, 2018

Lord Jesus Christ, my heart
reaches out in gratitude.
You have raised me up
from the darkness.

You have taken me from night
into the light of day.

Lord Jesus, even in my stubborn
pride, and lazy ways;
You continued to find me.

Gracious God, I thank You
from the depths of my heart
for Your goodness continues
reaching out in love.

Weekly Prayer - Yes, I Will Go!

April 12, 2018

Where will I go?
What road do I follow?
How long is this journey?
Will You be there when I arrive?

How long will it take me?
Hold my hand, and don’t let go.
How can I see if darkness comes?
Be my eyes and guide me.

I want to take this journey,
a journey to be with You.
It may be long, and I know
You will be there along the way.

Weekly Prayer - Rejoice in Our Risen Savior

April 5, 2018

We sing our Alleluias today, for Jesus is risen.
Our souls proclaim the greatness of God,
Our spirits rejoice in our Risen Savior.
Mary, may your song be sung in our lives
At every moment of this day so that God's power,
Which can do far more than we can ask or imagine,
May continue to call life from death and light from darkness,
Transforming our meager efforts
Into your Son's victory over death.

Amen.

Weekly Prayer - Father, Forgive Them

March 29, 2018

Lord, help me to show
compassion towards others,
as You show compassion to me;
help me to be forgiving towards others,
as You are forgiving to me;
help me to be considerate towards others,
as You are considerate to me.

So that in all things I may find peace,
knowing Your loving care in my life;
and that in all I do I may find joy,
knowing your loving presence in my hear.

Weekly Prayer - Let Us Rejoice

March 22, 2018

At first
Mary didn’t sense
Your presence,
didn’t know it was You
there in the Garden.
When she realized,
her heart was filled
with joy.

How often You are
near to us
and we don’t realize
For You are never far
from any of us.

Lord, help us to be
aware You are close
to us, so that Your
presence can bring
us joy, a joy that
makes our heart sing.

Amen.
